I saw these glass squiggles at the dollar store and thought “hm, those are weird!” Craftster member HSG and author of the Mosaic Manifesto blog made this stunning mosaic plate using the squiggles, mirrors, and flat glass marbles. Definitely the best use of those dollar store staples I’ve seen.
Seems like this application would make a really awesome Tiffany-style lampshade if you could get the right kind of lampshade rig for it. Nice!

That is amazing. It makes me want to go out and get a lamp form and make one.
