JEWELRY IS ART! So frame it…
In the past I have come up with a few different solutions to EARRING STORAGE.
This past weekend, I decided to try a new approach. I’m not sure that it is my favorite solution, but I surely like the idea of framing my art—jewelry.Here, the idea is that, I am making my own canvas that is stapled directly to the back of a wooden picture frame.
I like to start by taking a garment that I no longer wear—one that is a bit stiff so that the earrings don’t weigh it down—and tracing the outer edge of the picture frame onto it.
The next step is to cut out the traced area and using a regular stapler—flipped open—to tack down the material to the frame. To do this, staple one corner, then rotate the frame and staple the adjacent corner…continue to rotate after each staple so that the material is evenly stretched across the frame.
Trim your edges!
If you plan to hang your frame, attach a loop to the top center of your frame, not on the top two corners…the idea being that you will have easy access to the back for all of those studded earrings!VOILA! Just pin in your earrings in whatever order suits you best…and there you have it…a JEWELRY AS ART presentation!
