Verdant Tile Co. Review
I finally could resist no longer, and contacted Mary Philpott of Verdant Tile Co. to order the Mucha brooch. And what a great buying experience! Mary was really nice, and prompt in replies. She ended up firing three brooches, and gave me a choice of my favorite of the three. The package arrived less than a week later (even though it was international from Canada) and the item was wonderfully packaged.
The tile is gorgeous, and I had planned to wear it as a pin, but then as we were sitting on the couch that night watching a movie, I looked over at the fireplace and noticed that the tile was almost exactly the size of the strange middle brick on my fireplace. Since we rent, I couldn't do a total installation, but the brooch is now adhered to the fireplace with temporary putty. I think it looks pretty!
