Most recently I’ve been working on a new collection of vintage jewelry picture frames. I am thrilled to say that the first batch has been completed and nine new frames are now available for sale in my Etsy Shop!

Lastly, smaller rhinestones, navettes and beads fill in the remaining spaces. The result is a unique, one-of-a-kind colorful vintage bauble, just perfect for gift-giving!
