Zinnia Necklace


Stained glass mosaic on glass with red and peach aventurine beads and gold filled findings. Pendant 1”, necklace 18”. Flower series necklaces, designed by mosaic artist Gretchen Schaefer, of Portland’s Great Blue Mosaic, are inspired by summer flowers: poppy, cornflower, marigold, zinnia, and pansy. Each flower pendant is a tiny glass mosaic worked on a base of clear glass. The pendants are created using a combination of transparent and opaque stained glass, and sometimes include gemstone beads as part of their design. All stained glass and mosaic components are designed and handcrafted by the artist. Each miniature mosaic flower is approximately one inch in diameter. Some Flower series pendants are further enhanced by the addition of stained glass leaves and are set off by colored gemstone and glass bead necklaces designed to harmonize with the colors of the flowers. Employing traditional methods, Great Blue Mosaic offers hand-made mosaic art. Each mosaic is designed and hand crafted by mosaic artist Gretchen Schaefer. Works typically include a variety of traditional and natural materials emphasizing contrast of color and texture. Great Blue Mosaic offers hangable wall art, glass on glass mosaic vessels such as vases, accent lights and decorative platters, and wearable mosaic jewelry including necklaces, brooches and earrings. Great Blue Mosaic also creates custom commissions for clients and works with contractors to produce custom wall insets for wet applications such as backsplashes, showers or spa rooms.
