the Sapphire convex mirror

In All by Mark Evans

The Sapphire convex mirror is one of my oldest ones. It consists of blue glass cabochons and beads with large cast resin “jewels” surrounding the center. I purposely varied the intensity of the blue to represent many of the blue shades sapphires come in. It is a striking piece!

This mirror measures about about 14.5 inches in diameter. It resides in my studio.

Jewelry for walls!
