Farewell to a Favorite: Pearled

Cast Pewter Photo Frame (8" x 10") with Pearled Border (LEO Design)

This week I am sharing some of my favorite pewter photo frames with you.  Sadly, the New York City workshop which designs and produces these frames is closing after 40 years of quality manufacturing.  As of today, I still have a nice assortment of styles and sizes, though, alas, I will no longer be able to replace the pieces as they sell.  Click here to jump to the LEO Design "Frames" offering and scroll downward to the pewter frames.

The string of pearls which surrounds this frame, gives an air of understated glamour to any photo within it.  Like the gentle lights surrounding a backstage dressing mirror (or the chaser lights on a theatre marquee), the design hints at Twenties celebrity—but in a nonchalant, effortless manner.  Click on the photo above to learn more about this frame.
