Occasionally I have people ask me if this is my best price for a given item. I prefer to list at my lowest possible price so my buyers are getting the best value. I prefer not to artificially inflate prices only to dicker down.
I don't feel that serves anyone. Yes, this is my best price. A brief history of micro mosaic jewelry. Wearing micro mosaic jewelry became popular during the Grand Tour period (17th - 19th Century). Members of rich European families would travel around Europe, taking in the sights and cultures of different countries.Italy was a very popular tourist spot as it had a long and prestigious history in arts and culture - a favorite subject in aristocratic circles. It was also a famous glass producer, and Italian craftsmen quickly turned their glass making skills to making stunning miniature micro mosaic pictures for their rich visitors. Flowers were a very popular subject. Each piece of tesserae was hand cut by the artist and set in place with tweezers. No two micro mosaic pieces are exactly the same.
