    Here are a few of my favorite mini's I have made. They were all made for a customer from her late husband's ties and shirts.

    She had them all professionally framed.

    I'm not fond of things made out of ties, but those are beautiful. I'm sure your client loves them.

    Wonderful minis. I would of had them professionally framed also. She will be able to look at them whenever she wants. Good idea for using ties and shirts.

    Fantistic fine work. You really get a lot of stuff into a really small space. I believe they are all very worthy of professional framing and heirloom status. You GO girl!

    Thanks Rhonda, I would have missed them otherwise.

    Oh these are extraordinary. All's I can think is how slippery working with those ties must have been. Thanks for sharing.
