This is a new piece that measures approx. 10 3/4" square so I guess it doesn't really qualify as one of my minatures but it was created using that same technique. The background is clear glue chip glass with the plants added to the surface. There is another layer of glass containing the larger yuccas in the foreground and there are additional layers to depict depth. The pieces that create the border up against the frame are beutiful beige/tan mother of pearl. The first photo shows light passing through the piece and the other two photos are with mostly reflected light.
