Creative Focus- New to Emerald gallery!

I have had the pleasure of exhibiting the stunning mosaic “wall jewellery” handmade by the clever and lovely Buckinghamshire based artist, Teresa Mills.
Emerald currently has a selection of Teresa's “wall jewellery” on exhibition, any of which would be a beautiful statement piece of artwork in anyone’s home, and would be coveted by all your friends and family!

So, let me introduce the artist: Teresa is a graduate of Brighton college of art and she has worked almost exclusively in mosaics over the last fifteen years. Teresa is the author of four books on mosaic art, including the best selling “mosaic artist's bible” which has been published in more than twenty countries. She exclusively creates her mosaic word pictures, and balances her creative process with running mosaic projects in schools and undertaking commission pieces.

The word pictures are created from shaped fibre board which is filled by hand with a variety of materials including traditional millefiore tiles (made in the MURANO works in Venice), glitter tiles, gold leaf, sequins, gems and embellishments handmade from fimo. This combination of materials provides an intense richness to the pieces - each of which is completely unique. To get this exquisite detail takes many hours of careful, patient work.

Lucky for Emerald customers, I now stock these bags of fun from Teresa, so you and yours can complete your own mosaic masterpiece and enjoy wearing it everyday!
These fabulous little bags contain mosaic kits using diamanté or millefiore to create badges and brooches. They come with full instructions and everything you require to make each brooch, including the pre-cut brooch back, the millefiore or diamanté pieces and the glue.
The perfect, affordable gift or project for you to complete and wear with pride.
