Pebble Mosaics: 25 Original Step-by-Step Projects For The Home And Garden

You can take pebbles and other natural found objects and turn them into beautiful useful and decorative objects for the home and garden. Using easy methods and everyday materials, author Deborah Schneebeli-Morrell demonstrates in full color, step-by-step photographs how to create such beautiful items as a simple teapot stand to a rustic mosaic hearth. Other projects include: clay planter with broken china and pebble mosaic marble display tray garden edging candle holders for hurricane lanterns orchid saucer house number plaque sundial decorative plinth garden path slabs garden seat basket Each chapter covers a different way of using mosaics in the home and garden. Projects range from decorative window planters studded with tiny violet cowry shells and amber sea stones, to a herringbone mosaic path laid with brick-red, turquoise and gray pebbles. A garden birdbath inlaid with country stones and the blue-and-white vintage jugs allow lots of room for personalizing designs. A complete material list accompanies each project, along with detailed step-by-step instructions and photographs.

This is a good source of pebble mosaic ideas. There is the occassional use of non-conventional substrates (old galvanized greenhouse trays) and "pebbles" (slices of slate), which I like because it adds a lot of interest and makes me think outside the box. Although I haven't made any of the projects, the authors seems to do a very good job of listing all the items needed, and they give clear, detailed directions.There are a few projects that mix pebbles with china and tiles, and those were my favorite (aside from the candle holder shown on the cover). I felt that there should be MORE of something, but I think that is because I love color, and these projects, for the most part, use a very natural selectional of pebbles. The book gives you exactly what it says it will.

I rented this book from the library, and just had to find it to buy!! One of the best books for this type of project. Great projects and easy step by step instructions. It arrived fast from and in great condition!

Nice book with a variety of projects for those who have intermediate level experience doing mosaics.
