Earth Day will soon be upon us and jewelry displays can easily be found at thrift stores. I like the part of the Goodwill that has metal "stuff", candle holders, CD racks, hooks etc. This is usually really close to the tins (which of course make great jewelry). So here are a few examples of things I have found.

I have a wide range of items I offer and differing price ranges. For my expensive one of a kind pieces, I use the traditional black velvet busts and jewelry trays you can purchase. For my "production" pieces like OM Rocks, Trashy Tinsel, bracelets and such the repurposed displays are perfect. I can hang lots of jewelry on them and people seem to like to "dig".

What I really love about this, is I can just close it up and take it with me at the end of the day. No more time spent hanging up earrings and taking them off to store them. This box was given to me by a coin collector, but the same thing could be done with those old boxes that stored flatware. Heck, you can make jewelry out of the silverware and repurpose the box too.
Would love to hear what others are doing to recycle, upcycle and repurpose. Save our planet and Happy Hunting.
