I used a celtic design that is supposed to date from 500-350 BC.

It is on a small cabinet door about 13 1/2" x 12" The blue tiles are recycled glass from Maryland Mosaics

OHMYGOODNESS, SHRTY: This is soooooooooooo wonderful, and ELEGANT. This is a gallery piece for sure. W/you sell it or keep it? Are those BBs outlining all the pieces? What a nice touch. Colors are wonderful.

It's gorgeous, you must keep it. I squinted at the teeny picture and am so glad you've made it easier to see. The ball chain looks great on it, and the pattern is wonderful,
