Custom frames are a unique way to display heirloom jewelry that would otherwise remain hidden in a jewelry box. For example, an antique brooch set on textured or hand-threaded fabric and set in an ornate gold frame makes for a stunning display piece.

These personalized items, which should stay hidden in a wardrobe or jewelry box, make the perfect display on a dresser or on a dresser.

When framing a treasured heirloom, it's best to mount it on an acid-free file or support and opt for UV-protected plexiglass over regular glass.

Also consider photo frames for thoughtful and personalized gifts. Do you have music lovers in the family? Try giving a framed recording of their favorite music artist as a unique gift. This idea is perfect for friends or family members who "have it all" and can't shop.

There is almost no limit to the contents of the shadow box. With a little extra attention to the recipient's hobbies and interests, a themed shadow box is an easy picture framing project that makes a very impactful gift.
