    I love the workmanship. I have been looking for some chromed corner parts like the brass ones you have used but despite ages trawling the net have yet to fiond anything. Did you manufacture these yourself? Or can they be bought off-the-shelf? And what are these corner things called in technical, hardware terms?

    BTW the mosaic is superb!

    Cheers.

    The only chrome or nickel ones that come to mind are roundish, like for shipping containers (musician's 'road cases', etc).

    I second the hobby shop venues as last-known sighting.

    Thanks Murray - I had come to the same conclusion myself regarding the chrome variety. Thanks to the other repliers too, if I find what I want here in the UK or online I will post a reply for anyone else looking for this kind of thing.

    The brass fitting they stock is perhaps not as ornate, But if they stock it, I bet B&Q do too.
    IMO the brass fittings give it a little more character..
