Whimsy Lot Frame & Heart


Beaded Whimsy Picture Frame & Heart

This delightful Whimsy Lot Frame & Heart will be a welcome addition to your collection! The crafter made them with velveteen fabric and sparkling beads and trims.  The picture frame features floral designs in green and blue-lined Clear beads.  The crafter added three dimensional edge beading with pearl white Seed Beads.  He or she used the same beads to create a hanging loop.  Two drops of iridescent Turquoise Seed Beads hang from the bottom.  The crafter outlined the photo space with white-lined Clear Seed Beads.  Calico fabric lines the back. The frame measures 4.5 inches x 3.75 inches not including the drops.  The frame opening measures about 1.5 inches x 1.25 inches.

The heart shape features three dimensional beadwork of Alabaster White, Yellow Orange, Candy Pink and Pink-lined Clear in the center.  Further beadwork includes Turquoise, Yellow and Transparent Green Seed Beads.  Braided trim in Brown, Green and metallic Gold outline the design.  Two rows of edge beading in White Seed Beads outline the entire piece.  On the back, the crafter attached orange taffeta fabric.  He or she left one corner unstitched.  We do not know if the crafter intended to make this piece into a pillow or something else that required leaving the back unfinished.  The heart measures 4 inches x 4.5 inches at the widest point.  Both pieces are in new condition.    One of a Kind!
