whats the best way to go about putting the tiny embroideries in the frames? http://www.etsy.com/listing/81234540/deer-head-necklace-silk-ribbon
any advice on how to make  these?

I would absolutely love to have a personal swap! I'm interested in jewelry, soap, and anything that inspires you on my Pinterest

To make?  I would think, if you are good with soldering, you could take a metal base and make a metal ring to match and solder the two together sandwiching the embroidery in between - but you could make a bit of a mess of the embroidery piece inside if you are not careful, if you want it open like that.  OR you could get the metal base, covering frame piece (thinking curved, forged wire myself, with ends soldered together) and just glue them, but then you will have the visible seam.

You could go with a couple of other options - cover the embroidery with glass pieces, like microscope slide pieces and solder the edges - the embroidery would also be better protected.  Or buy a premade frame style bezel and lay your piece and secure it in that - an online supplier like Ring n Things in the US, or BeadFX in Canada do carry them.  Or fake it with something from the hardware store, like washers.

I suspect that the maker used a manufactured frame.

I have been searching far and wide for a website that sells those frames. Huh
I know they come in 3 pieces, the frame, a piece in the middle to wrap your material around, and the backing.

But I cannot, for the life of me, find a manufacturer. If anyone has seen them somewhere other than etsy, please please help!

Making them will be the simple part.  Just embroider something tiny, wrap your fabric around the middle piece or a cut a piece of cardboard that will fit perfectly inside and secure the fabric around it.  Then you'd just close the prongs in the back and you're done!


Everything goes better with beads.
