Custom Framed Jewelry Creations

My name is Sandy and I am the owner of the Great Frame Up in Niles Illinois. I have worked here for 30 plus years and have been an owner for just over 10 years.

I started creating vintage jewelry designs after a customer came in to the store with a jewelry Christmas tree that she had gotten at a resale store. The framed piece needed some TLC, so I cleaned it up and repaired the frame for her. While the piece was in the shop another customer saw me working on it. His mother had recently passed away and he and his siblings had been at a loss as to what to do with all her jewelry. The jewelry didn’t have any monetary value but was very sentimental to them. He asked me if I would create 4 tree pieces, one for him and each of his siblings and they were thrilled with the designs. And with that the inspiration took hold and I started scouring garage sales and flea markets looking for jewelry to create designs that inspired me.

All pieces are for sale and I can create a custom design for you out of your own jewelry or mine.

I hope you enjoy my pieces.
