Sea Glass Fish Mosaics

~ sea glass project submitted by Maree in Waihi, New Zealand

Hi everyone - haven`t been here for ages - but the summer has ended so its more indoors activities now.

I have done several of these fish wall plaques, whatever you want to call them.

The shapes cut out of thin wood,(by my dear long suffering husband!!), mosaiced, grouted & hung by wire.

They sold well at a local camp store.

I also did some as key holders incorporating a couple of hooks before sticking on the glass pieces. (Menfolk seem to like that they serve more of a purpose than decorative only!!)

Most of my ideas have been mosaics, but I am keen to try drilling pieces to hang.

What kind of drill do I need & any tips I need to know?
