sneak peaks of my newest upcycled/repurposed jewelry storage and display. they’re one of a kind (in more ways than one, though obviously as happily-stumbled-upon thrift store finds, i can’t make more than one!)
you got your bowl o’ bugs made from a silver plate bowl that i decoupaged with a nice bright grass background and topped with reproductions of neato dragonfly, beatle, and bee stamps from around the world. bonus feature (not shown in photo): it comes with a plastic bowl insert so you could even serve food in it! creep out your friends! horrify your mother in law!
also pictured is a former soap dish that i decoupaged a reproduction vintage map into and then added the quote from Tolkien: “not all those who wander are lost” and a sweet little bird in flight. i can imagine this being the perfect place for his jewelry: just the right size for a watch and some cufflinks. the bowl is copper-plated and sits on four little feet like an old claw-foot bathtub. i was very excited to find it at the thrift store and give it a new life. collecting cool quotes is yet another favorite pasttime of mine, so i thought i’d bring that aspect of me into this creation.
