Cute Ideas For Displaying Vintage And Antique Jewelry
This idea for displaying your antique and costume pins and brooches requires that you have a set of colorful Sharpie pens or magic markers and some scrap heavy or postcard weight paper. Who doesn't have these supplies hanging around?
You Will Need Card Stock And Markers
Now you cut the card weight paper into fun shapes . Here Peter Roth, the owner of "Tree House Art And Antiques", in New Hartford, CT (Route 44), cut his card stock into floral shapes or shapes and designs that are compatible with the piece of costume jewelry that he was "framing" on his card stock.
Creating Colorful Backings For Costume Or Handmade Jewelry
You will see that the gold color beach chair pin is attached to a white cardboard backing where Peter drew a beach umbrella. How cute is this? Or look at the cute flower shaped cardboard backings? Isn't this a sweet and inexpensive idea? If you try this idea, send me your photos (Dianne@cdiannezweig.com). Thaks.,
