Problem solved

A girl friend was telling me about how much jewelry she has that she doesn't wear.  In the morning when getting dressed she doesn't have time to look through boxes or untangle pieces to wear. I made her this storm window converted to a jewelry holder that she can just lean in the corner or up against the wall. She can now see what she has and it is at her finger tips. 

 All I did was take the glass out and stretch nylon screening, found at any hardware store.  I use the one for pet doors, it is more durable.  I covered the staples on the back with a decorative cording and gave it a paint job based on what she likes.  She uses X-mas tree hooks to hang necklaces and bracelets on and it's perfect for pierced earrings. In her case she puts her earrings at the top and necklaces at the bottom.

I have made earring holders using embroidery hoops. Just secure the screen with the hoop, decorate with lace or pretty ribbon glued around the edge, a loop at the top, and you have an earring holder. And, they're small enough to hang anywhere you want for easy access. They make a great gift for a special friend. Posted: 3:39 pm on January 24th

I tried something similar with an old wood-framed screen I bought at a yard sale, but the screeening is definitely vintage & metallic and is harsh on earrings. The nylon mesh type you used sounds like a much better alternative. And I'm almost embarrassed to admit that even though my bedroom is a pretty good size, it's still ridiculously....uh, cramped. Thanks for sharing this! Posted: 1:06 am on March 24th

You'll notice that this is a very slim screen, so it doesn't take much room. I did a large oval frame and hung it on my wall next to my dressing table. My bed room is so small I have to leave the room to turn around. Posted: 8:00 pm on January 22nd
georgiamoon writes: Wow all your jewelry at your fingertips ...what a novel idea. It seems I am still into the tangled ball that I struggle with everyday. I love that she has plenty of room and since it is sheer it doesn't look bulky. It's probably even prettier with the bling on it. Georgia Posted: 7:28 pm on January 22nd
