I bought all of the materials for the jewelry board at JoAnn except for the frame (which is made of vinyl molding from Home Depot).
I am not one to conceptualize and create without any assistance, so I am very proud that I visualized and was able to find what I needed to create the board.
I am disappointed that it turned out so bland. I know I could have used brighter colors, but I'm not really a neon kind of girl. Oh, well. It's functional. This is what it looks like with every piece of jewelry I own (half of which I will never wear, but keep for other reasons).
The earrings are in little pouches made of vinyl.
The necklaces are hanging off of Tim Holtz buttons:
The bracelets and rings are hanging off of Tim Holtz doo-daddy thingies that look like keys in locks:
What I Learned:
1) I don't own enough jewelry to have gone to the work this project took.
2) I would be lost without Mr. Mitchell and his tools (so I could force the keys into the locks - silly me, I assumed they would fit).
3) I'm not very good at designing or interior decorating.
4) If I really want something to get done, and it's in my power, I can get 'er done.
