Add an unexpected glimmer to tiled surfaces with Susan Jablon Mosaics Stainless Steel Collection Tiles. Exterior- and interior-rated (yes, they can be used in wet conditions such as a shower), the tiles feature a porcelain core that is fully wrapped with stainless steel. The tiles are glued to mesh for installation.
