All of my work of jeweled framed pieces is made from vintage jewelry that I repurpose, breakdown, change, or add to, making a new composition... I use only the best stones... And add Swarovski crystal when appropriate. All my pieces are created on masonite with very thick cork in addition to foam core backings....
My images that jewelry covers... Yes even just the rhinestones or rhinestone chain for the most part are actually hand cut out of wood to give the piece lasting stability...There are time when I feel the piece need some of its components to be directly on the velvet to make the composition work better. But for the full effect... You place it on a stand up easel near your tree, fireplace or dining room and what the candle light, tree light, or firelight... This piece has been professional framed in a antiqued platinum/silverish wood frame.. I do not just find frames as discount places/ garage sales and used them..
SPECIAL NOTE::::Please realize these are hand made, with vintage parts, and glue.... They will not be perfect..
(that is part of their charm)... You will be able to see glue in some places.. That is typical of this art form. And I have a special secret treatment I have developed and give them to keep the stones from ever yellowing and for lasting a long time...
These are not under glass.. Moisture is not good for rhinestones period.
So with each piece I will send you a tube of G-S hypo Cement.. Should something seem loose or God forbid come off. I have also had a few clients that want to add sentiment pieces to my works.. Which is fine by me...Please do not attempt to use any other adhesives.. The expensive velvet IS UNFORGIVING!
If you use another glue I will not be able to help you fix the piece. The item "Unique Framed Christmas Tree Made From Vintage Rhinestone Jewelry" is in sale since Sunday, October 29, 2017.
