Just in time for Easter, Cindy Silas finished her micromosaic from our recent class with Cynthia Toops. Cindy’s leaping bunny is set in a metal clay bezel that she textured with photopolymer plates.
Here’s the in-progress shot in case you missed it. Baked, splinter-sized pieces of rolled polymer are set into unbaked clay, a tedious but meditative process.
I’m leaping to the west coast today for a vacation. If you see beach pebbles and sea glass creeping into PCDaily posts, you’ll know why.

Meticulous patience sure paid off in this lovely and appealing Easter Bunny piece and the bezel is the perfect setting to frame it.
Cynthia, Hope you have a wonderful trip and perfect weather for your sea glass and beach pebble vacation.

What a pretty piece! Cindy did a wonderful job with her colors!
People have asked me how I can stand to put 20+ hours into a mosaic of 7,000+ pieces that only measures 2.5 x 3.5 inches. “It must be so tedious.” Thank you for providing me with a word to describe the experience. From now on, I will tell them, “It’s not tedious at all, it’s meditative.”
What a pretty piece I love the blend of colours. Patience surely, but what a wonderful result!
What a beautiful work, i do love Cindy bezels and this pattern is so cooool!
Remind me how i loved to make micromosaïc and how difficult it is to get bezels matching/suiting so long/intensive/meditative(maybe) and exciting(sure!!!) work…
Bravo and thank you Cynthia,I dream to begin again a micromosaïc…

Thank you for showing my finished brooch Cynthia, and thanks to everyone for your compliments.
I want to second that it was a very meditative process and always fun to work with so many colors.
