Marie Antoinette Inspired Altered Picture Frame

This is a piece for a swap in the Marie Antoinette Art group.  I started with a vintage frame I purchased on Etsy (in the picture below).
I embossed a chandelier on the glass and added some rub-on transfers.
I collaged some vintage images on the insert.
I glued the glass and the insert into the frame.
To the frame I attached various pieces of jewelry, brass findings, pearls and rhinestones.
I’ll share the one I get from my swap partner as soon as it arrives.
