Apple Lady

This is The Apple Lady, the first of 101 mosaics I am doing based on the doodles from my friends' sketchbooks.  This one comes from Sarah A., and I thought it was fun because the apple stem looks like cleavage.
All of the mosaics are 12x12, with an inch and a half wrap around to the side, (I will try to get a picture posted to show what I mean).  This is not grouted yet, I dislike grouting so I am putting this off.

Meet my friend, Will.

This is my most recent finished mosaic, done for a friend (click on the image to see it bigger).  The quote is done in Orsoni's gold smalti, about 5 different shades in all. The frame was found on Ebay.
Lucky find...
