Jeweled Frame Inspiration

Do you ever have an idea of something in your head but you don’t know how to execute it? This is something that’s driving me crazy right now!

I have this idea for jeweled picture frames to use at our wedding to display table numbers. I figure making them myself will be less expensive, but I can’t figure out exactly what I want to do. I love the idea of vintage brooches and costume jewelry, but I know that could get expensive quickly. I found an Etsy show that has tons of Swarovski crystals with flat backs, that aren’t too expensive and I think mixing those with pearls might be what I’m looking for. But then there’s the idea of those flat back marbles you find in the bottom of vases – those are inexpensive and have a nice sparkle to them.

To help myself figure this all out, I created the moodboard above with some ideas. Which is your favorite? Do you have any insight as to how I can recreate these looks on my own without breaking the bank??
