Making Micro Mosaics - Pietra Dura

Ian, Look for “pietra dura” on the web. That’s a name for stone micro
mosaic jewelry.

“Pietra Dura” means hard stone in Italian; it is not necessarily
micro mosaic lapidary and it doesn’t mean jewelry. K Kelly

Hi Kevin,

oops, you read a lot more into my statement than I intended! If you
search for pietra dura online, especially on eBay, you will certainly
turn up a lot of vintage jewelry that has tiny pieces of inlaid
stone. Jewelry that has this sort of “mosaic” in it is much more dear
(expensive) than glass mosaic jewelry. I was trying to be helpful,
but I see that you already knew everything!
