Look at this transformation, handmade Mosaic Violin

Look at this full size Violin I found. Face Plate cracked, no bridge, scratched up
everywhere, some pegs broken on the tail piece – the repair for this violin would
have been so outrageously high, it wasn’t worth it.
What to do – of course, a cherished art piece for the music lover to display on the
wall, dresser, table. An auction piece for a Symphony Orchestra to make the public aware
of the local Symphony Orchestra and what it has to offer.  A gift for the music protégée,
a child learning to play the violin or an adult even. 
It’s curtain call long gone – I transformed this violin by sanding, priming and painting it.
Placing a china plate rim mosaic, complimented with stained glass on this violin face plate.
Every lil tile is placed with the greatest love and care, glued down, matched up with
complimenting colors. 
I then grouted the mosaic with an antique white grout, sealed it with Tile Sealer – and on
to the “pretties”. I placed handmade clay roses strategically and lovingly, the missing
strings were replaced with light green pearl strings – and look at her now...
What a beautiful gift this makes, Wall Décor, Centerpiece....available at my shop here
Thank you so much for looking and enjoy....
