Using Mixed Media Mid Century Inspired Collages To Display Vintage Costume Jewelry

Retro Displays For Old And Artist Made Jewelry

I'm always trying to think of neat ways to display jewelry in my shop Kitsch n Stuff in my booth at The Collinsville Antiques Company of New Hartford, CT
 Over the weekend, I came up with yet another kitschy way to bring some life back to old costume or artisan made jewelry.

Cutting Up Old Collages For Jewelry Display

I went to my art studio and cut up pieces of my old Mid Century inspired abstract collages into small sections to use as cardboard backings for vintage brooches and earrings. Besides having a lot of fun with this project, I really think I created some eye catching presentation of vintage jewelry.

Readers, please share ideas that you have used to display old jewelry.
