Fully . Repurposed

I've been working on ways to display my jewelry for ages now, trying to find a method that's both practical and pretty. This past week I got the final piece I'd been looking for - a great ring display. And the best part about all of it? Absolutely everything has been re-purposed! It's kind of magical what you can do with some old items and a bit of paint. Plus maybe a staple gun.


The jewelry "area"


Vintage test tube holder spray painted black + glass test tubes to hold the rings


Antlers draped with rhinestone bracelets


A vintage postcard fence holder for earrings -- it even works for clip-ons!


My earlier made necklace frame, created from an antique frame + metal mesh sheeting


A tiny pony, for good measure

Awesome. I would never have thought to use test tube to store rings! I'm stealing some of these ideas.

Thanks everyone! I was just tired of having my rings cast about in boxes -- it always looked so messy, plus it was easy to loose track of things.
