Framed Old Jewellery Collage

I have decorated the frames of old mirrors with old jewellery before, but have never done a collage (?), so this is my first attempt.
Framed jewellery collageI’ll be honest, I am not 100% about the black background.  It might look better on some velvet fabric.  Perhaps one day, when I’ve nothing better to do, I might look for some suitable fabric and change it.  I am not sure how much of the main body of the piece would fall apart, it should be pretty tough as I used E900 clue, but it wouldn’t be too hard to put together again, and maybe add some more bits.
The Ribba shadow box frame came from Ikea, it measures 23 x 23cm and cost £3.50.

It's beautiful! My sister has done some shadow box collages, too, and I love hers, as well. I've not tried it myself. I think you could sell these, Helen, especially if they were done for a specific family using their loved one's old jewelry.

it looks stunning as it is to me, but then again, you see it in real life!

Your collage is lovely, I think it looks perfect against the black background.

The black is a lovely contrast to the jewellery. The piece looks beautiful.

Beautifully collaged pieces. I like the black background. Not sure that any other colour would show them off like this.
