Life ...(Empress Zoe)

Her name Zoe (Ζωή in Greek) means life and as I was reading what's on Wikipedia (she was a Byzantine Empress and born in the purple c. 978 – June 1050), I realised how intriguing and fascinating her life was. Which reminds me I have given up on writing my Theodora story. I recommend you read THIS! The stories behind mosaics! WOW...

When history and tradition speak louder than words

I love it when I come across things like these! Full of history, meaning and inspiration. 

The Hopi woman in the picture is wearing turquoise mosaic earrings and a necklace of glass seed beads. Can you believe that the picture was taken in 1901?

A rather.. unusual bowl made of little bubbles set as if in a 3D mosaic!

A glimpse on the amazing things you can find on Etsy...
