I have seen this somewhere, I'm almost sure, but when I FB-ed it, everyone thought it was awesome. Since it seems to be a fairly new idea, I decided to post it! I used what I had handy, but I realize this opens the doors to literally thousands of styles. I am going to use a smaller mesh next time so studs can sit in there more easily.

I've seen similar earring holders, but I really like how you've added the wood on the back so it can stand on its own! Very unique! How did you attach the wood? Glue or nails? I may have to borrow your idea for my next earring holder project...  Wink

I added another picture. I'm not sure why it didn't work to begin with! My husband did it and used screws, then painted it. Smiley And thank you. I love it.

AAHHHHH AWESOME! I posted one of these a couple of years back - though it wasn't reusing a frame, my partner made me one Tongue the only problem I found with it though was because it was always out in the open, the jewellery got very dusty and because it was costume jewellery, it tarnished seriously easily! I wanted to put a clear door on the front, but I didn't Sad The smaller mesh is fab though, as you say - you can stick your studs in it Smiley

Here's the thread with mine in http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=264447.msg2969548#msg2969548 and a piccy:

I never even thought of that! Thank you for telling me. Now I get to brainstorm on different ways to remedy that. Smiley I really like yours! Where do you find the small mesh, though?

I got my smaller mesh from a home store, but you can probably get it at automotive type shops too I imagine Smiley Maybe even a craft store might carry it, for paper making? Good luck! Cheesy
