This oval brooch is made with the same techniques as the Bird on a Limb brooch. I mixed Pearl White clay into the colors to give the tiles a soft, shimmering effect. This dove design is not a silhouette, so I added a dark beak and eye for extra detail.

Our final mosaic project is a little different from the previous ones, as you'll be securing the tile strips onto a pre-baked, three-dimensional surface. Your strips of clay will follow the curve provided by the cultured pearl. Your center gem may be a different shape from the sample project, which is perfectly fine! A stone of any shape that can withstand the oven temperature may be used on your vase. Test the stone first by placing it in a preheated oven for 1 5 minutes. If it comes out undistorted, it's fine to use.
