Upcycled jewelry display idea!

After scouring the interwebs for ideas for something I could use as 
an economical jewelry display and seeing tons of amazing ideas
and wandering through the thrift shops as I so often do.... 

I came across these two old wall mount spoon racks!!
The small one was $1.00 and the larger one $2.00

I didnt think to to take a picture after I bought them but before this
photo was taken, as you can see, I broke off the two
layers of "spoon holders". 
The reason that I did that was so that I can use the larger one
for necklaces and the smaller one for earrings.

I went down to the hardware store and chose a Marigold color spray paint 
as I think it would perfectly contrast with the 
hand blackened brass that I use for my jewelry and 
also if I choose to use this as a display at a market or craft fair
it will be nice, big and bright from afar!

The smaller one I chose a beautiful Robin's Egg blue spray paint, it really is pretty!

Sorry about the horrid lighting....! It's quite stormy here.
I added the pretty paper that I decoupaged on since it was quite
obvious that I had ripped off those two layers of "spoon rack".
I may decorate it further but I wont decide that until I see it full.

Such springtime colors! And my tablecloth for when I vend is a nice springy 
green! Yay for colorful pretty things!
I am quite low on stock at the moment jewelry wise, so they arent full at the moment...
But they will be soon!! (Thanks to my oh-so-wonderful customers!)
I just put a LARGE order in for 
beads and findings - I love shopping for bits and bobs!

Do you have any hand made, upcycled or creative jewelry displays?
What do you use to display your pieces? I would love to see!


  1. Great post! I love checking out thrift stores for cool display stuff!
    For an outdoor market, I once turned a giant old frame into a shadow box, padding the inside with old foam covered with canvas. I displayed it on a big easel and pinned jewelry to the cushioned canvas. The coolest display I've seen recently was an old twin mattress (lol). It was just the metal frame and springs, stripped of everything, it was hung from a ceiling, and items for sale, such as mobiles were hung from it. Fun stuff!

    1. Oh wow, that sounds so cool! Great idea! Some ideas I've seen are just so creative! Interest is such an awesome place for ideas for displays. I have a whole board that's just dedicated to craft market displays and working on one that's all cool packaging ideas. Love interest for that!!
