Family History Matters – Last Christmas season I made this sentimental gift for a grandchild of a retired farming couple. Everything in the box has personal sentiment;
- the cameo belonged to the grandmother
- the black and white photo of the farm house
- another brooch from grandma
- a baseball cap
- and a horseshoe
The Black suede mat board and individual windows emphasized each pieces.The baseball cap was flatten, but with the button on top of the cap and the visor it is noticeably a baseball cap. The rusted horseshoe is protected with a varnish., then stitched on top of the cap and through the suede mat board.
Wall Buddies help the heavy frame hang flush with the wall securely.
Working with sentimental objects brings purpose and meaning to my work. Shadowbox picture framing protects family heirlooms and creates a show piece for all to appreciate.
In one shadowbox frame you can display a delicate Cameo brooch with a rustic horseshoe and ENJOY it.
