I love jewelry. In that sense I am probably more my mothers daughter than any other area. So, I went to find a pair of earrings the other day and it took me so long to dig through my host of earrings that I couldn’t find the specific pair I wanted and ended leaving the house with bare ears.
It finally occurred to me that I might need a better system for organization. After all, jewelry is the most important part of getting dressed.
I went looking for earring stands but couldn’t find any I liked. I did how ever find this beautiful necklace hanger. I love the style of this thing with the whole antique frame. The problem is that I don’t have many necklaces and the ones I have don’t need organization. My issue is keeping my many earrings under control.
So I decided to take the basic idea of this one and completely and unashamedly rip the whole thing off. Only I will just apply it to earrings and use colors that better match my bedroom.
List of what I need
Egg plant colored lace
Batting left over from another project.
This whole thing was simple, simple, simple.
Step One I cut the lace, lining and batting in a rectangle an inch and a half bigger than the frame.
Step Two I framed all three fabrics with the lace on the top, then the lining and the batting on the bottom.
Step Three The edges of fabrics where hanging out. I decided to glue them down rather than cut them. All done! It was that easy.
Total $8.97 (and about ten minutes)
The end result was an earring frame that will hold from 25 to 40 earrings depending on the size of the earrings. I like it even more than the one I got the inspiration from. It is more me!
