Jewelry Frames

I made some pretty jewelry frames. Disorganized jewelry makes me sadface.

Pretty easy to do. I took the backs off, removed the glass and saved them for something in the future. I cut pieces of lush and thick upholstery remnants I had stashed (a gift from my niece a few years ago) about 1.5″ larger than the cardboard back pieces all the way around and attached them, pulling tight.

I couldn’t find my glue gun, which I think would have been the best course of action, so I had to do a bit of hand sewing to pull the back pieces towards each other, kind of like a corset. It took way longer than if I’d been able to find my glue gun, but I do love working with my hands, so no harm. I used three different but complimentary fabrics.

I cut some lace strips and sewed them on at intervals along the length, pulling the strips tight and then stitching a tiny bit in the center fronts to hold them in place. My earrings aren’t generally heavy, but I still wanted the lace to stay in place once I had them all hanging.

I screwed hooks along the top of two of the frames to hang my necklaces from. I decided not to pad under the fabric with any batting because I wanted a flatter surface so the earrings and necklaces would lay flat. I think I made the right choice.

I don’t like them so center-focused on my bedroom wall. Right now they are directly across from our bed. I’m thinking I’ll move them to another wall and place something I’d rather stare at in their place.
