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.
