Make your own jewellery holder - diy ;)

So I'm a bit of a collector with jewellery, whenever I'm out at the shops I'm fascinated by it. In fact so many times I've bought things I haven't even worn yet.. and I will, one day :P You know, people collect shoes, handbags, mines jewellery, and I always get people commenting on it, I've just counted my bracelets on my arm at the moment and I have 14 beaded ones and a band bracelet my nanny got me. Hahaa, people get me jewellery, and sometimes I put it on my arm and it becomes part of the bracelet family, they all have a specific order on my wrist.

And if you love fashion, I'm sure you've saw at least one celebrity's wardrobe or shoe closet? am I right? I like watching 'Show Me Your Closet' on sky, some celebs wardrobes are to die for! omgoshh, it's not even the stuff in it that amazes me the most, it's the way they store and arrange everything. I mean check this one out on the left. I think this is just a little bit of Miley Cyrus's shoe store...

I have loads of jewellery hung all over a lamp, I don't even use the lamp anymore it's too covered. Then it's got my flowery straw hat on the top. I've got jewellery in multiple draws, jewelry boxes and all that. And because all this diy stuff is pretty cool at the moment I thought I'd have a look at some different ways you can store and display jewellery, because I don't like it to be just stuffed in a box.

This is pretty cool, although I don't think it'd hold hardly anything of my mahoosive jewellery collection! But its good for rings and hand jewellery. You can buy these in stores, but they can be quite expensive. And why buy it when you can make it yourself really cheap?!

The solution is made from plaster of Paris  which you can buy at a lot of stores. Id'e get it from ebay <- click on eBay  I've linked it up to a page selling it. It's only £2.90 and you get 500grams! There should be instructions on the plaster of Paris of how to make the solution easily. Then, get a thick rubber glove; preferably a kitchen washing up glove. These are good as you'll get the wrist in the mold too so you can put bracelets on it. When the solution has set completely, just role the rubber glove off the mold. Obviously it'll just be plain white, but you can spray paint it silver or something like that and varnish it after if you want it to have a high shine. Or you could get lots of rhinestones and dazzle it, there's so much you could do!

I quite like this idea, although I'm not into old 'shabby sheek' as some call it? So I'd change this up a bit, you could use a draw you don't want anymore, paint it if you want. But I'd start from scratch, measure and cut everything first obviously. I would sand everything down so it's smooth, and spray paint it all the four outer wood pieces, spray paints thinner than normal paint and a lot easier to do. Then I'd varnish the four outer pieces. On the inner pieces, Id wrap it in sparkly material and fix it in place. Then construct this main shape and fix them all together with nails. Use corks or some sparkly cupboard knobs/handles and fix them to the back board. You could make the little pots, or buy them and label them.  If you like my idea, then I hope you have fun making it, I'm going to :)

*wear gloves when making the hand model and using the plaster of paris. Don't put your hands in the plaster of paris, as it can reach temperatures of 60 degrees inside when setting. If your young, then ask an adult to help you out :)

If you've got any cool, cute, sparkly idea's of jewellery holders, or you have an ace jewellery collection, you can tweet me photos to my twitter account @sammigirl1994 and I may feature your collection on here!
please follow/join this blog. You can do that on the right hand side of the blog, join with your email or twitter which is better, as if you ever win a competition, its easier for me to conact you.
Please follow me on twitter, and if you tweet me to follow back, I will :)
