Materials: Ribba frame, chicken wire, cork, carbon tube and hangers
Description: As I have quite a lot of jewelry, I decided to display them in a picture frame.
I bought 2 Ribba frames from the as-is-section (4€) and used only the frame itself. For the earrings I cut a piece of chicken wire to fit the frame and “clipped” it with these little metallic, bendable things that would normally hold the photo mount and the glass in place. The same with the piece of cork which is the best solution for studs.
The necklace frame is a bit more complicated: I drilled to holes where I wanted the carbon tube to go (depending on the lenth of the necklaces). I bought the tube (2€) at a railway modelling shop. It is cheap and slightly bendable. After having slided on the hangers, which are a left-over from an IKEA curtain-hangers-pack, I inserted the tube in the drilled holes and hung the necklaces.
