The wreath features poinsettia flowers, pine branches, holly leaves and berries, bay leaves and decorations. It is designed with stained glass petals and leaves, iridescent art glass tiles, iridescent and opaque recycled glass tiles and sticks, red glass gems and upcycled large gold beads and a wooden star.

Hello! My name is Carol Ahmed. I love creating mosaics to brighten up homes and gardens, making individual pieces to suit a client’s tastes and requirements. I have had a lifelong love of mosaic and having recently given up work, I have been able to spend more time creating mosaics. I love designing – playing with pattern, colour and shape. I was always the kid ( and the grown up to be honest!) making patterns in the sand with pebbles and shells. I like combining mosaic tiles with other materials – especially upcycled jewellery and beads, but also other ‘found’ materials: driftwood, stone etc. I search for interesting objects to upcycle and use as bases or detail. I like to recycle and re-use whenever possible. I also like that an object that is individually sourced will suggest ideas for designs and colours to develop in the finished item. Some of my pieces have strong geometric patterns, influenced by Moorish and Islamic art and architecture. Other pieces explore curves, waves and spirals, inspired by the natural world and classical mosaic art. Each item is unique, finished with craftsmanship and attention to detail.
