Framing a Truly Personal Treasure

By Maureen O'Connor, Tru Vue® Marketing Manager

We love to see custom framers framing for themselves, and with springtime in the air and Easter upon us, we couldn’t help but get excited about this piece from Rachel Bradbery GCF (APF) of  Framing Marvelous in Wanaka, New Zealand, featuring an image of one of the Easter season’s most fitting symbols – a hare.



The moment


The purchase of this acrylic etching plate from Gemma Campbell, a New Zealand-based artist, was a treat for Rachel. After finding the time to put her framer’s touch on the piece, she selected framing materials that draw the viewer’s eye to the intense detail and texture of the piece.



The design


The Marais moulding in Antique Silver from Larson Juhl NZ, one of her favorites, with its embossed pattern lining the inner perimeter adds a hint of playfulness appropriate for the etching’s subject. Rachel chose stacked mats with a hint of brushed pale gold peeking out around the edges of the artwork, which complements the frame’s metallic finish.



Clarity and protection


Tru Vue® Museum Glass® allows every detail to be seen while providing maximum protection, two benefits that are essential to enjoying the artwork for the long term and especially important for a treasured piece like this one. We couldn’t agree more with her selections!



We always keep an eye out for the great work custom framers share online, but feel free to bring something from your own “brag book” to our attention by tagging @TruVueGlazing on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
