Ramon Giner (a collector of some of my work and an artisan by trade) was kind enough to send me a picture of his handiwork. The frame is made of Oak with an American Black Walnut bead. I think the black background contrasts the art cards nicely and the trim/bead adds a simple yet elegant touch. I will be posting some more up close pics when both of get some time. This is a very well done frame and I am flattered that he would put forth such an effort!
