Jewelry as Art


I absolutely love this fun and frugal way to store and display earrings. If you don’t have an embroidery hoop, they are fairly inexpensive to purchase.

I would love to make the doily myself but thanks to carpal tunnel problems, I cannot do filet crochet. The hooks needed to do this type of crochet are too narrow and that makes it painful for me to hold one for any length of time (even with padding on it, believe me I’ve tried). So I am going to check thrift shops for doilies such as the one pictured below.

If you can’t find or make doilies like this one, I’m sure some pretty tulle or nylon netting fabric would work just as well.

This could definitely be a piece of wall art as well as practical storage for your earrings, don’t you think? For more ideas on pretty and frugal ways to store your jewelry, check out the Quick and Easy page at These Are a Few of my Favorite Things blog.

[By the way, if you’re into using hankies, thrift and antique shops are great places to find them. Vintage hankies not only have pretty designs, they are made of tightly woven cotton that lasts through lots of washes. My allergies cause my eyes to water a lot, especially first thing in the morning and many times when I’m crocheting (I think it’s the yarn “dust.”) I love my hankies and keep them in my purse as well as in different locations in my home where they’re easy to grab when needed.]

  1. Good one!! I have a box of vintage hankies. They hold memories of mom and grandma!! I may try the hoop idea, too. It wouls be easier to see them! Love, Alana


    • Thanks Alana. Isn’t this the cutest and easiest idea ever? I’m going to do this one for sure and I decided I will make the doily with some slightly thicker yarn than is called for and that should still work well. When I finish it, I’ll post a photo of it with my earrings on it as a follow-up to this. Love & blessings!
