From Coasters to key rings and T-shirts to tea towels, when we travel we bring back souvenirs as gifts and mementos of places we've been to. In the early 19th century, micro mosaic jewellery was a very popular souvenir for tourists to bring home from Italy. Made by setting a thousand tiny pieces of glass onto a metal bezel to make a detailed mosaic image, they were worn on brooches, cameos, earrings and pins.
Currently am working on designing a craft activity around a 1950's souvenir mosaic brooch from Italy. Painting flowers with watercolours is always interesting as you never know which way the paint will blend and run.
I think they would make a nice addition to a coat hanger!
