by Laura K. (Up in the Clouds) To round up her ring collection, Laura bought a Paris-themed metal mini-trunk and a long strip of peach-colored felt. She folded the felt like an accordion and packed it tightly into the mini-trunk. The dips between the folds are perfect for holding a ring shank, gently but snugly. You could easily stock a pretty trunk … [Read more...] about Ring Display Mini-Trunk

The … [Read more...] about Padded Hangers as Earring/Necklace Display
