* necklace hooks

Posted on September 15th, 2008 by maitreya. Filed under Jewelry, Projects with Instructions.

Further progress on the Dresser Beautification Project. Now instead of having a clump of tangled necklaces, they’ll all be neatly stored on hooks, with the added bonus of something decorative on some blank wallspace. These are 2 mysteriously left over Ikea bits of wood I found in the basement. I wrapped them in fabric, hotglued in the back. Then screwed cuphooks along the bottom. Nail a little hanger on the back and done.

    I took inspiration from this and put screw hooks into a cigar box that was long and skinny and put it on the wall as a key rack with hidden dollar bills in the cigar box for lunch money for the kids.

    Thanks for the ideas!

    Too cute! And don’t laugh – as a jewelry maker I’m always on the lookout for ideas I can adapt to display jewelry at shows – and with a sturdy base (something refound of course), this could be adapted to hold neckaces (or bracelets or earrings) at shows. And would be a good conversation piece too.

    And things could maybe even be *stored* on the rack, if the whole thing fit into a big ziplock. Hmm. Now you’ve got my brain going. Thank you!

    Would like to know the dimensions of the necklace hooks. They also appear to be white; is this a plastic coating over metal. Do you have other styles of hooks also; meaning all metal, brass bronze, or silver COLORED. I am not looking for a high dollar hook; just different finishes.

    The hooks are maybe a half inch or a little more in diameter. They’re just cup hooks from the hardware store. They had several finishes available.

  • This recipe with white beans is probably my favorite farro salad yet. The creamy beans play a huge role in that, along with the sweet tender leeks and fresh parsley. But it's the chunks of salty, citrusy preserved lemon, a condiment often used in Moroccan cooking, that really takes this salad to the next level.
