Micro-Mosaic Fine Jewellery
Handcrafted micro-mosaics created using the Italian filati-making technique for crafting micro-tiles.
Smalti are small pieces of coloured glass, engineered specifically for mosaic art. Solidified glass paste is cut into small tesserae (tiles) using hand tools, much in the same way as was done during the Roman period.
Wall mosaics can be made using glass or ceramic tiles and make brilliant large-scale, eye-catching pieces both on the walls of a family home but also in public spaces.
In the very beginning, mosaics were fabricated using pebbles found in nature, with each stone carefully placed to be an integral part of a coherent, well-designed whole.
