Gold Leaf Frames
Working with 23 karat yellow gold, 12 karat white gold, and delicate, champagne-colored 22 karat moon gold, we add stunning accents to our hardwood frames. Our artisans employ the esteemed technique of water gilding, carefully applying leaves of gold by hand over red, black or blue clay, then burnishing them to a perfect finish. It is a painstaking process, preparing each frame with gesso and clay, but there can be no shortcuts. The result is a pairing of exquisite Gold Leaf accents and warm hardwood finishes, creating a singularly beautiful frame.
