i have a craft fair coming up in june (my first one..) and I needed something to hold all of the resin rings/button rings that I make, so I made one of these out of a wooden tray from wal-mart, packing foam we had in the garage, sheets of felt, hot glue and paint!!

I have another tray, so I'm going ot make another one to seperate the buttons rings from the resin rings... but for pictures I filled the one I've already made up.




comments and criticism welcome!

That's a great idea and your rings are gorgeous. My favourite is the star in globey colours, lovely!  Smiley I think that you chose a great shade of blue - it's a great backdrop for them all.  My only concern is that multitudes of people will want to steal your rings - will you just be selling the two trays or other items as well?  If there's other items then you might get distracted and someone might pilfer your wares.  Perhaps you could have some transparent cover over the top so that they are still really visible but not too accessible to the wrong hands?

Those are lovely! May I ask where you got the "rings" to use for resin pendants. I've been looking all over for some. :[

I was going to say this exact same thing!

It could be done fairly easily with a small piece of plexi-glass and a couple of small hinges.  It wouldn't even have to lock, really, but having that extra layer of protection makes it harder to swipe one.  Plus, even if you're not looking directly at it, you'll notice the plexi being lifted out of the corner of your eye.  A simple lock could be put on the same way as a hinge if you did want that.


If you do decide to do it, remember to have it over hang the opening side about a 1/4" to be able to open it easier.  A little knob would work too, but would block at least one ring from being seen without opening it.

I'll be selling other items as well, mainly jewelry. My mother is going with me, so hopefully we'll be able to have some good coverage so nobody steals anything. But that's a good idea, I'll probably pick up some supplies to make a cover of some sort! Thanks Smiley

You can definitely check etsy, that's where I bought them from the past couple of times. There are some nice supply shops on there. I think orientaltrading.com , ringsandthings.com, and firemountaingems.com has some as well.

Smiley I'm glad I could help!! It's fairly easy, just a little time consuming...especially the first time! lol

well done! I'm also tying to figure out a way to display rings without buying a generic display. I was thinking of looking into cute vintage ones but I may try this out instead:)

If the rings are wedged securely and the display is not too thick you could also use a plate/frame holder to display it vertically. That way you could keep it further away from the edge of the table - it's harder to steal and more obvious if they have to reach over ...
