I like how digital fretwork stands out on a white computer screen, and decorate the white page of a book, bag, invitation, or just about anything else. But before you try making your own, consider the (often inexpensive) options from pro graphic designers.
Fretwork definitely makes me think of contemporary design, which is ironic considering it dates to ancient times!
You’ll find it in different colors and metallics. I like this collection of gold fretwork digital borders by Melissa Held Designs. It comes with 13 borders in gold and in white for around $7.
