Do you ever have a hard time finding the necklace you want to wear or an earring? You have one gold hoop and it's time to leave; where in the heck is the other one?
Wouldn't it be better to see all of your jewelry? Instead of hiding it away in a jumble use it as artwork. It's shiny, sparkly, beautiful and often times has a story and fond memory to go with it.
Grab your jumble and follow me. I'll show you how I did it.
Start with a serving tray. I used one I already had. Any tray will work. Add larger items to the back of the tray and smaller items towards the front.
I added glass candle holders from the Goodwill. If you don't have any, the Dollar Store in your area should have some options as well. Wrap strands of beads, pearls or chunky bracelets around the base. On the top there is a small area where the candlestick would normally go. This is the perfect place to hold a set of earrings.
On my tray I seperated earrings and smaller necklaces and bracelets by putting them in little silver canisters. First- I've been smitten with these little containers for years. All containers really! Second- they come in different sizes and have clear lids which make them perfect for this project. I recently found some I like even better. They are completely clear and come in many sizes. The small ones are 1oz. and the large size is 2 oz. You can check them out without leaving your couch. You are supposed to be untangling necklaces right now, right? If you really love some bling these ones are clear with gold lids. Va, va, va, voom!
I added some keepsake jewelry boxes I have and a picture of my dog. I also added some small glass bowls, again from my local dollar store. These hold bangles and super huge hoop earrings.
Why stop here? Go vertical. I added a clothes hook with three swiveling arms. It holds a lot of necklaces and bracelets. You can get it here.
One final touch. I added an old picture frame that I painted black. The glass had been broken on the last move. I just removed the staples in the back, painted it and hung it on the wall using two tiny finishing nails.
Now I can see all my jewelry, it's easy to put away and makes a beautiful statement wall.
