These are some of the jewelry displays I've made using upcycled vintage wares.

Vintage accordion hat rack that I took apart, cleaned and painted using leftover house paint. These are so easy to find second-hand and they work great for long necklaces which are hard to display using tabletop racks.

Vintage metal mug holder. I took it apart, sanded lightly and cleaned with alcohol. I also painted it with leftover house paint.

These weren't altered but I still wanted to include them for other ideas on upcycling vintage items:

This brass photo holder works well for hanging earrings

A groovy tiered serving tray which you can use to hold or display all sorts of things. I use it for post earrings.

A now obsolete metal CD rack:) now holding loads of earrings.

Here's a blog post I did on more ideas for eco-friendly and upcycled vintage jewelry displays:

Great ideas! I would love to find one of the brass photo frames with the little swirlies.

I like the accordian necklace hanger especially, and the yellow wall behind it!

I love this :] As I'm sitting here surrounded by free-floating bracelets and necklaces yet to find a home, this made me realize I should be taking a trip down to the thrift shop!

My favorite is the CD rack :]
