Smalti and gold

 

I couldn't help myself. I had to give my take on the well-worn concept of people missing out on something spectacular because they're entranced with their phones. Not me of course. Other people. This is one of the rare all smalti (glass) pieces I've done. Because of that it's unusually vibrant compared to my other work. And that halo is real gold. It's also a rare piece because I accidentallly "signed" it backward by setting my signature murrini wrong. Smooth Jim, smooth. Don't miss out on this piece. ; )
