If you have visited Simon Robinson & Son, you will probably have seen the example of framed baby shoes on display. Framing your child’s shoes is a lovely way of preserving the memory of those first steps.
A customer recently bought in some very pretty flower girl shoes that would normally have been resigned to the bottom of a wardrobe.
The cream silk shoes had a very delicate pattern and we didn’t want the frame to distract from this. Therefore we chose a pale cream mount and frame creating a simple yet contemporary look.
We used one of our unique spacers to build up the depth of the frame and create a box. We painted the spacer to match the frame and mount, adding to the simplicity of the overall piece. You can see below how the depth has been built in.
The overall effect was stunning – the perfect way to both display and preserve a moment in time.
