I really get into display pieces. I just did a show last week and it was the same a always. When I look around at the other vendors, I'm distracted by what they are using for display. One gal there was so very clever, I wish I'd taken pictures. But I plan on heading to her shop, in a town not so far away, next week so maybe I'll take some pictures then and share them with you.
Anyway, here are a couple pieces I've made recently. The first is a set of shutters. I've had shutters before for my earrings but I've recently changed my earring cards so these shutters have tiny nails in them to hold the cards instead of my slipping the cards between the slats. Also, I'm doing 2 shows in one weekend soon so I'll need 2 displays plus don't you just love the pretty blue of these shutters?
The next piece is for my plain chain key necklaces. I wanted something I could just stack a bunch of necklaces on top each other, to take up less space.
I got all the pieces for this at Gold Rush in Ononoco Minnesota this past August. The pillar had a dark stained finish and it's base needed to be cut off. I used the cut off scrap to trim out the bottom. Then painted it white. The turquoise colored trim pieces are corner protectors for walls. They came in this fantastic color so I just had to clean them up and cut them to size and attach them. I got the hooks from the same guy I got the pillar from.
