I ordered these great Vibrant Glass Tiles. Yep 90 boxes of tiles. Every mosaic artist's dream to have a stash of material arrive. It was a delight opening the boxes looking at the wonderful colours. I just wish it had been hassle free. For a first importing exercise, it was exhausting and some months later, I still don't have all the colours I ordered. I do hope that will be rectified sooner rather than later. We shall see. So I was generously given extra area in our shed, and shelf units, to unpack and display my lovely shipment of tiles. This so far is the colour palette.
There hopefully will be 17 more to come.
This is the information about the tiles :

I have all kinds of things that I use in mosaics listed for sale in my shopify store. For example- glass tiles, jewellery blanks, Apoxie sculpt for making jewellery, filato, fibregass mesh, gemstone chips, tumbled gemstones, beads, gemstone slices, gemstone pendants, tweezers, crystals...... I try to add new materials to the site regularly. I've been collecting materials for many years for mosaics, and now I am making them available for sale. I am lucky enough to visit gemstone shows in the US and am able to purchase materials from all over the world. Stay tuned for more interesting materials to be added in the near future.
I will also start putting some of my mosaic art for sale on the site also. Already I have my micro-mosaic jewellery pendants for sale on there. :)

Copy and paste this link for the first bit of press I have seen about the Mosaic Project. It is a mention and photos.....
Here's a billboard too.....
Pretty Exciting to be in Santiago. Flying in over the Andes Mountains is something I will never forget. Majestic! The city is surrounded by mountains, and no photo I have taken so far even comes close to indicating how huge they really are. There is a lot of smoke around at the moment from fires and so things are a little murky..... :(
I am surrounded by mosaic artists from all over the world, and am a part of this project and still every day I have to pinch myself. How did I get here, how could I be so lucky? Is it real?
My partner made it all happen for me, and for that I will always be grateful. His support for me to follow my dreams will always be remembered. Marcela has opened her home to me, and made me very welcome and oreinted to Santiago. Isidora has been my Idol since I saw the first mosaics being produced. Being accepted to be a part of this first project is just very special for me. Thank you again Glenn, Marcela and Isidora.

It's official. Dreams do come true. I've been selected as one in a group of 60 artists who will travel to Santiago Chile and work on a collaborative mosaic project under the guidance and instruction of Isidora Paz Lopez. I have been watching Isidora's wonderful mosaics come into being- both murals and pillars in the Puente Alto Metro, in Santiago. Now I will get to see them in person, and help create some nearby. It is very exciting news.!! She is showcasing Chile, its people, its artists, its flora and fauna, and I see so much to be excited about.!!!!
Also I get to finally meet a long time "online" friend Marcela, who is a talented mosaic artist, and she is generously having me stay with her while I am in Chile. It will be wonderful to meet her at the airport and even though we will have language issues, because whilst her English is great, my Spanish is non-existent....we are sure there will be much laughter!
Here are the list of artists in this project.
