Synopsis

Collect stones, pebbles and shells, and adorn your garden and home with these beautiful pebble mosaics! Experiment with textures, design and colour to create some stunning feature pieces and decorate your garden and home.

The mosaic has long been a stunning method of garden and interior decoration, stretching back to the cities of ancient Greece and Rome, and now, with Pebble Mosaics, you can create your own little piece of history in your home! Learn how to find and forage ceramics, stones and pebbles in your back garden and home, and arrange them to make the 25 beautiful and original designs packed inside Pebble Mosaics. Complete with a 'Gallery' section to inspire your creativity, there will be a pattern or a project to suit every need and any taste. Pebble Mosaics is split into two chapters. The first, 'Paths, Plaques and Panels', will take you through creating mosaics for larger projects such as Stepping Stones, Garden Benches, Sundials and Evening Tables. You will learn how to mix cement, identify good materials for your project and construct patterns that suit you. The second chapter, 'Planters and Decorative Features', will show you how to make some beautiful ornamental items, such as a Bubbling Fountain, a Lattice Planter and Hurricane Lanterns. With easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions and photography, Pebble Mosaics is suitable for even the most novice of pebble-layers.
