    I would like to make a tiny quilt design and put it inside a frame for a brooch. I cannot seem to locate what i want. Years ago I made a Santa face with beads and it was mounted and set in one of these goldtone frames.
    Does anyone know where I can get such a thing? I searched for 3 hours on all kinds of websites for findings etc. and came up with nothing.

    I was just searching for you too, and didn't find anything!

    Could you use one of those little photo frames, and glue a pin backing onto it? I think in the Dollar Store you can get a package of 3, I think their about 2" or so.

    These are made for pendants, but you could put a pin clasp on the back and make them double duty.

    These are specifically brooch bases.

    Does that come close to what you are looking for? If not, I'd be happy to look for more if you have more specifics.

    Thank you but I think Ghostrider has come up with exactly what I need. I am going to try it. If it doesn't work, I will be back to your suggestion.
    Thanks again!

    I guess I did this wrong. I was trying to change the pic on the side. I guess I need help.

    LOL. I had set that project aside because of a big quilt I am handquilting. I was using that to try to change the pic on my profile and did it the wrong way. Finally figured it out.

    I am going to get back to those pins in about a month.
