"The sunflower-painted glass button was made in the Czech Republic and found its way to me, through a loved one who found it at a flea market in Germany. A long journey! The other pieces I used in this mini mosaic, come from a broken bracelet, or were found whilst panning in old haberdasheries in Brazil. Some are even part of donations from friends who know that I reuse what falls into my hand."
