At my most recent in-home jewelry show my goal was to get more vertical with my items. In the past I have used lots of lifts and levels in my displays but I still felt I needed more height.
The photo shows my solution – a mannequin I named Scarlett. I searched high and low for a reasonably priced mannequin and finally located one on Etsy. A friend of the Etsy store owner actually made her.
I fluffed up her dress a bit and used repainted hooks from the curtains I removed from my dining room. The hooks worked well as I could hang and showcase some long necklaces I had made.
I got lots of comments on Scarlett and I was rather pleased with the outcome.
