photo framing ideas #1 mother of pearl

Inspired by one of my gorgeous clients' collection of metallic and pearl frames, I bring you number one in a series of photo framing ideas: the (pale) mother of pearl frame. Pearl can act as a subtle, neutral mount, so it's perfect for smaller prints and quick easy gifts. Black-and-white images really suit pale pearl frames, as do soft, delicately coloured images. See the example below of baby Archie in B&W and then in soft-colour, framed in The White Company's 6x4" version, priced at £35 (the upper end of the market) for superb quality - well made, black velvet backing, non-tarnish silver plate, and each comes with its own gift box. Zara Home and John Lewis' 6x4" versions are more simple and more affordable at around £10.

Great frame suggestion. The pearl frame in the picture looks great. Can't wait for the other suggestions.
