Love and magic have a great deal in common. They enrich the soul, delight the heart. And they both take practice.
A Victorian superstition promises that if a bridesmaid passes a piece of wedding cake through the wedding ring nine times (in essence, a spell), she will see a vision of her future lover. The Bridesmaid passes a pomegranate seed, the seed that Hades persuaded Persephone to eat, resulting in her spending half the year in the underworld as his queen. A half-eaten pomegranate rests on her plate. The Bridemaid wears orange blossoms, symbol of chastity, while a ripe uneaten orange sits besides the half-eaten pomegranate. The painting is eminently religious and at the same time profoundly sexual; a silver jar reminescent of a censer sits on the table before her.

I can make you a sample tile for panels and backsplashes. Here's how to get a sample tile:
Order a panel/backsplash sample. When you've finished your checkout, you'll be redirected to a page where you can tell me the backplash or panel you are interested in and ask any questions you might have.
The shipping calculator should work for the US and Canada. If it's off, we can settle up when I ship your order. For other countries, contact me so I can send you an invoice for your sample.
Alternatively, you can order a full-size individual tile on a hardwood gift box. Most have locks and keys.
