Last week I finally finished framing this antique beaded handbag, handed down from The Professor’s grandmother. I used a shadowbox I already had, painted from white to black (actually oil rubbed bronze), and I stretched a linen-colored fabric over the backboard. By punching tiny holes in the backboard, I was able to sew the tiny hooks for the handle to the fabric and backboard. That is what keeps the handbag in place. The cording handle is tucked inside the purse for display.
