Art Deco Picture Frame

February 5, 2009 · Filed Under Gift Ideas · Comment 

I like to have a lot of visual things around me and I find that nothing makes me feel more glamorous than art deco picture frames.

When I was getting my own place, and didn’t know much about style and found it all a little intimidating, a close friend told me, ‘Pick one thing that embodies your style and work out from that.’  The one thing I chose was an art deco picture frame and it’s kind of gone on from there.

I know it’s a little silly, but having my jewellery displayed in art deco picture frames, as well as beautiful glamorous art deco film stars, makes creating a look so much easier.

How to display your jewellery using Art Deco Picture Frames

Art Deco picture frames are so beautiful.  They come in a variety of shapes and sizes, but one thing that Art Deco picture frames all have in common is that they are very stylish.

Now I know that there is nothing better than a picture of you or your loved one beaming out of a vintage Art Deco picture frame, but there is another use.

Art Deco picture frames make a divine and completely original way to display your smaller items of jewellery.  You have to be particularly choosy here, otherwise, you are in danger of spoiling the essential glamour that makes up the beauty of the art deco picture frame, but done in the right way, it can be a marvel.  And if, like me you have a vast array of jewellery and sometimes forget what items you have then this may be the answer.

It’s also a trick I used when I owned a jewellery outlet, I’d drape necklaces and bracelets over the art deco picture frame and fill the inside with art deco brooches and they always got a lot of attention and as a result, the jewellery I displayed sold faster.

You can be as creative as you like with this, so use this just as a guide, let your inner expression out!  Oh, and if you’re especially good at making these they also make great gifts. Read more
