The thrilling conclusion of framing antique purses

We were so excited to see these finished that we couldn’t wait to post photos of the last two antique purses we’ve been working on. Each design uses two suede mats in the front and one behind the purses. The customer loves bright, rich colors so that’s why we often use the fabric mats for her – it’s a smart design choice, too, ’cause any mat with a paper surface would probably pale in comparison to the colors in the beaded purses. The green mat also features a V-groove in it – that white outline near the edge of the opening. The frames are hand-finished, Italian frames by Roma. Major kudos to Jamie for coming up with the designs in the first place, not to mention the excellent mounting job she did – you can’t even see the thread that’s securing the purses.
