seashell mirrors are so yesterday....
So, I used Coral on this mirror!!! Several months of collecting random peices of coral (mostly gray and white) from garage sales and friends (and one very fun snorkeling trip) resulted in this mirror. I really scored once when I found someone selling their aquarium and sold me all their coral (really big pieces for only $20.00!)! It is HEAVY but I love it!! Every time I look at it I remember who gave me the pieces and of my vacation...it is a "memory mirror". Oh and you must use a heavy duty clear contact cement to keep this project together. Keep your glue gun handy too for those small chunks that do not want to stick.
