This framing project of the month starts with a very nice watercolor by Bev Jozwiak and a vision by the client for a mirrored frame with a high-end look.
Since the perfect frame wasn’t available from commercial resources, we hand-crafted this beauty by covering a plain liner frame with cut strips of mirror, and embellishing with filets and silver leaf. We covered the mirror miter with glue on decorative corners, and then used a nice frame around the edge.
The end product is a classic frame with a lovely mix of modern and traditional features. The use of mirrors reflects not only the color of the piece, but will take on the overall tone of any room it’s placed in.
