This strikes me as being an excellent potential fundraiser for an organisation. The items are small enough that artists and enthusiastic craftspeople would give it a go, and potential buyers would buy them because it wouldn't be out of their price range.
Mosaic is a medium…
…that can utilize so much that is undervalued or thrown away in our society. The wonderful patterns created by repetition of rubbish-tip items reminds us of elegant ethnic decoration. A simple spoon, key or cup handle repeated acquires a magic, hypnotic musical rhythm.
Once people start to play in this simple way, they spot opportunities everywhere. I hope this book can help to free the inner artist in you so you can find joy in expression. – Kaffe Fassett

Haft rang: the seven colours of blue, yellow, turquoise, pink, aubergine and green.
I really like the colours in this. The combination of warm and cool colours. One to file away for the future.
Found this while looking for ideas on mirror frames. Love the use of the classic hibiscus motif. Pretty blue too.
