The Queen of wands measures 120 by 50 cm. It was created with vitreous glass, broken plates, glass nuggets, beads, glass jewels, fimo twirls, mille fiori, bathroom tiles and much much more. Grouted in dark gray, some painted grout lines, on a Wedi base, aluminium edges.

This mosaic was created as a comission for a friend who wanted a mosaic in yellow, orange and red - this is what happened. Her face is borrowed from the Girl with the Pearl Earing, and the Queen of Wands is of course also the Queen of fire, so she has lots of red hair. The idea is that her face should seem hauntingly familliar, but you can't quite place it.

I wrote a tutorial about painting grout lines based on this mosaic - click here to read about it!
