In 1994 Bella Fiore began dabbling in photo frames with floral embellishments. Having a love for crystals and antiques Bella Fiore quickly became one of the first companies to decorate photo frames with swarovski crystals, an idea which was warmly received by the buying public. Since 1994 Bella Fiore has specialized in the creation of unique hand-made picture frames. Photo frames made by Bella Fiore are chopped and joined in the traditional picture frame production manner and hand-painted and finished. Frames are decorated in a wide range of styles, including the clean lined contemporary, the soft and sweet country and the antiqued and embellished traditional. Some frames are hand gilded or waxed. Other frames are adorned with French or Swiss ribbons. Still others are created out of Italian molding typically used to frame fine art.
