Tesserae are the small pieces of stone or glass used in ancient mosaics. Stone was used primarily for floors, while glass of every hue was popular for wall and vault mosaics in Early Christian and Byzantine churches. The pebbly texture in this slip-stitch tee is reminiscent of those opulent mosaics. Either short sleeved or sleeveless, this top provides unexpected color play-dramatic in black and white, but other color pairs can add brilliant wardrobe accents. Try soft yellow and orange, kiwi and turquoise, cinnamon and eggplant; the combinations are endless! (Interweave)
