BROKEN CHINA MOSAIC (PIQUE ASSIETTE)

When most people hear the term "pique assiette mosaic" they automatically think of a mosaic created from broken china.

Pique Assiette - a french term meaning "stolen from plate." Pieces of broken china, pottery, glass, buttons, figurines, and jewelry are cemented onto a base to create a new surface.
Almost any form can be used as a base and any combination of pieces can be applied. The design is restricted only by the individual's imagination.
So you see, there are no right or wrong ways when creating Pique Assiette mosaics. 
Thank to Tina for the great info ...
