Where in Canada? In Toronto, we have recently had a few things framed at The Rebecca Gallery (Harbord at Grace, just w of Bathurst) - I dont recall silver specifically, but lovely frames and Kerrie the proprietor has an excellent eye.
hi genevieve - not sure what style / cost you're looking for. some ideas:- $$$$$ many art galleries provide framing services, and usuallly (not always) carry non-mainstream frames- you can DIY by purchasing unfinished moulding (in Vancouver, Obal Moulding has great selection). silver leafing the frameis pretty straighforward, but cut/join can be trickier depending on the moulding profile -- the cut/join is something any framing store can do for you- you can have (almost) any used/vintage/antique frame cut down to the size you need - then you can refinish with silver leaf / paint and purchase any other components you may need or don't want to DIY (glass, backing, mats, canvas liners, assembly with the artwork, etc).my favorite is re-doing old frames -- it's a fun quest, and you end up with something unique.m.
LightImpressionsDirect.com has some great DIY frame kits online. Here is one silver option. You can also order custom sizes.
pictureframes.com surprisingly has a lot frame choices and designs.
