SHADOWBOX TREASURED ITEMS

You can shadowbox almost anything if you use a deep enough frame. Objects that are special to you can be displayed in a way that protects and preserves them. Shadowboxes can be used when the object to be framed is three-dimensional or when the effect of depth is part of the aesthetic.

Sugar Star

 The shadowboxes pictured above were created specifically for the items they house. The materials used are all archival, and the items are attached in such a way that they can be easily demounted if necessary. 

Gather up your medals, coins, christening dresses, ceremonial shovels, whatever you have, and give them the special treatment with a shadowbox from Framers' Workroom.
