Crafting Stunning Frames to Elevate Your Art Collection

Once upon a time in the artistic halls of Geneva’s Cepia Apprentice School, a young Gerald Haefelin embarked on a journey to redefine the world of framing. Trained by Europe’s artisanal elite, Gerald didn’t just create frames; he fashioned artful encasements that were symphonies of form and function.

Recognition came knocking, not just in the form of a coveted Bronze Medal at Geneva’s 33rd International “Show of Invention,” but also with a royal nod. The late Crown Prince Rainier III of Monaco chose none other than Gerald’s frames to cradle his priceless artworks.

Yet Gerald was a restless spirit. In search of a new canvas for his lifelong craft, he relocated to South Carolina. The “Old World” mastery met “New World” innovation, and magic happened. Every frame is a tailor-made masterpiece, designed in tandem with you to reflect your aesthetic and needs.

Ditch the one-size-fits-all price tags. Because when you’re crafting art, there’s no room for limitations. Gerald and his team offer personalized quotes to kickstart your framing journey. Ready to bring your imaginative frame to life? Let’s blend our visions and create something unforgettable.
