*the glass pieces I used are called Cobblets I bought them at Michaels, they are nice because the sharp edges have been smoothed over so they are gentle on your fingers.
**you can buy glass tiles at craft stores too, but they are much less expensive on ebay.http://search.ebay.ca/search/search.dll?from=R40&_trksid=m37&satitle=glass+tile&category0=''
***The grout I usually use for my mosaic projects is already premixed and comes out of a tube which makes it super easy to use, I get it from RONA here in Canada.
