I just got a quick question....

I want to make a necklace with a frame, but I don't know how....

I found this site: http://www.etsy.com/view_transaction.php?transaction_id=8003303

http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.skybluepink.com/images/ovalframe.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.skybluepink.com/products9.html&h=264&w=400&sz=11&hl=en&start=24&um=1&tbnid=omgZRPK5JlFuxM:&tbnh=82&tbnw=124&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dantique%2Bbrass%2Bframes%26start%3D20%26ndsp%3D20%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26sa%3DN
but i want an actual store store lol
And I love the frame, I think its a label frame. is that right? Does anyone know where to buy it....


Or any other ideas of what  i could use as a frame.

Thanks!

You can buy all kind of small metal frames and bezels in craft stores (as "bead" parts, as scrapbooking supplies, etc.) or you can find them online at jewelry supply sites, or you can even luck across something that was used for another purpose or use old jewelry with the "stone" or whatever removed.

You can also make similar frame-type things from polymer clay (then make them metallic looking with metallic powders or metallic leaf or even metallic  acrylic paint, etc.), or from other materials.

There are also lots of other ways to "frame" small items of polymer clay. 


Check out some of these pages for ideas and examples for various kinds:

(...click on the category called Bezels & Frames near the bottom of the list)
