You sweated to get that nail license, so why not show it off in style? In her Etsy shop — Familiar Faces Frames — Bakersfield, Calif.-based cosmetologist Abby Briggs has just the thing to make your license pop. Her handmade frames fit just about any state’s cosmetology license.
Briggs launched into this sideline to fill a much-needed niche. “Anyone with a business license in California — and many other states — has run into the same frustrations I did when looking for a frame to display their license,” she says. “There just aren’t a lot of options out there that fit. I wanted to design beautiful, fun, and funky license frames that suit just about anyone’s personality.”
Most of Briggs’ creative ideas grow out of her obsession with scrapbooking paper. “When I get the frames they are completely unfinished,” she says. “I decoupage them with scrapbooking paper and hand-paint the back and edges to match. Each frame includes a glass insert to protect your license and a small dowel to stand the frame up. I can also add a cute bow to any frame upon request.”
