There are times when I can be a small scale hoarder, and I'm hoping I'm not the only one. One of my prized hoarding items is costume jewelry. For so long I have kept all my precious jewels in a dirty old shoe box (labeled "precious jewels" to make me feel better about the disarray). It probably doesn't even count as a box anymore. All sides busted, more or less laying flat on the ground with a tangled up mess of beads and strings sitting on top. I thought I'd make a fun and quick little art project to try and harness this mess:

Here are some more great ways to display jewelry in a frame:
Back it with a fun fabric. This would be sweet for a little girl's room.
Use wire mesh in the frame to be able to hang more earrings. I like the pretty ribbon, too.
Screw in some great vintage knobs to hang your necklaces from.
Put together a collection of frames with fewer, more prized pieces to make a beautiful artwork statement.
Baby doll arms!?
