Handmade Shabby Mosaic Violin broken cut china plate mosaic violin

Have the Blue's.....not with this beauty....

an unplayable violin transformed via fresh primer and paint in off white, a bit distressed for the shabby, worn look, a handmade Mosaic into a beautiful gift for a music protégé, wall art, table center piece, so many occasion to use this beauty...

This violin is meticulously mosaic-ed with the most beautiful, hand cut china plate rim mosaic tiles. Cascading lush blooms and roses on some of my favorite vintage bone china/porcelain dinner and breakfast plates were cut into a very beautiful mosaic tesserae to cover this violin; The hour glass "waist line" on this violin is embellished with a focal and surrounding tiles. The violin is filled in with white, all kinds of blue's, even glitter tiles and some pale pink stained Glass tiles. All china plates used here are in very subtle shades. The strings on this beautiful art piece are a set of ivory pearls. The tail piece is accented with handmade clay roses and some bling.

This is a gift that everyone likes to receive, music lover and others alike. I finished this violin with a very light antique white colored grout to give it even more charm and a finished look. This vintage violin was rescued from a thrift store, unplayable, it's curtain calls long gone...but - finally! For a festive center piece and those spots that need a little shining, a dazzling handmade mosaic has been applied to this violin.

A master piece transcended...what a gift for the right person. Thank you for looking
