Mirror Commission

I wanted to share with you a project I've been working on.  I was commissioned to make this mosaic mirror for a girl who is turning 12.  The family belongs to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.  When girls turn 12 in the church they graduate from primary (junior sunday school) and enter the young women personal progress program. They spend the next 6 years learning, goal setting and serving others in an effort to develop 8 core values:  faith, divine nature, individual worth, knowledge, choice and accountability, good works, integrity, and virtue.  The mirror will be a gift to her as she enters this phase of her life.

Sorry about the so-so photos, it is so hard to photograph mirrors! 

I think this is an amazing program, and I was so honored to create this gift for her!

I made one for her older sister a few years ago.  This is what hers looked like:

We don't have a program like this at our church, but I am so inspired by it.  What a beautiful way for a young girl to enter her womanhood.

Have a blessed Tuesday!
