This lovely box is handmade and unique. You will receive the actual item in the photos.
The box is heart shaped champagne gold painted resin with a mosaic on the lid designed in opaque and iridescent recycled glass tiles in shades of gold, burgundy and cream, with metallic foil tiles and a copper/bronze metallic tile centre and metallic Czech glass paisley bead detail. It is finished with cream grout. The photos do not show the full beauty of the iridescent tiles. They change colour in the light and glow like jewels – purple, pink, burgundy red, gold and silver.
Dimensions: length – 14 cm width 14 cm depth 5 cm
Hello! My name is Carol Ahmed. 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.
