Question tile mosiac

Is it OK to use small pieces of tile to make a mosaic on the floor. I want to use this pattern for the entire floor. Will it hold up. Do you have any tips on how to do this.

People have laid mosaic floors for thousands of years. Some of them have been unearthed, cleaned up, and look beautiful. (The History Channel is so educational. )

Most mosaic's these days are actually small tiles on a mesh backing. You lay them with thinset just like regular tile.

If you're going to do it piece by piece, don't spread more thinset than you can cover in 5-10 minutes.
