The last time I often give my G&G frames as a gifts for my freands and relatives. Therefore I decided to make some G&G oak frames with stone inlay and instead of ebony . I used lazurite and turquoise cubes 6х6х6 mm.
I understand that violated G&G traditions, but I wanted to trying out something new.

The different material is an excellent way to customize!

Of course the turquoise is perfect for almost any southwest themed art.

If it looks good, I don’t worry too much about breaking traditions. Stone, metal, or different wood, all make the final product stand out. The subtle differences are what makes a piece your interpretation rather than just a copy of someone else’s work.
