Stained Glass Mosaic Self Portrait in Black and White

A social networking site for Mosaicists that I belong to had a challenge contest recently to create a mosaic using only black and white. I took up the challenge and tried something else new in the process- a portrait. Never having done one before, I figured I start with me.

Thank you so much to the members for voting my self portrait Members Choice!

All materials are stained glass - pure white for the face/neck area, three other whites for the hair, a textured black for the shirt and two little triangular pieces above the right side shoulder.

This mosaic is part of my personal collection.
To view available mosaics see my Etsy shop:

I also create original design silver jewelry:
