Mosaic Techniques - borders

Because I just posted the Oak Tree piece I thought this might be a good time to demonstrate borders.  The glass layer in the frame contains the border and then a second layer was created for the tree.  After both pieces are mounted together additional leaves are also added to the border layer to create the 3D effect.

Here is the border of the "Oak Beauty piece
before it was grouted.
