Portable Display Case

(Carriacou, Grenada)

Living in Carriacou, Grenada, it is difficult to just go out and buy pre-made carrying cases or items necessary to set up a great jewelry display.

With so many festivals and carnivals (these people love to party) every few months, I needed something easy to carry from festival to festival.

I also wanted it to be a great display piece and present my jewelry in the best possible light.

There was a Peg Board Display Case on Pinterest by Sugar Bee Crafts. I thought, with a few modifications, this could work for me.

A friend made the attached case from wood pieces. Used teacup holders to hold the necklaces and bracelets. He added a metal screen section for the earrings.

We used an old leather belt on the outside to carry the case and a small latch to keep it closed when not in use.

I think it came out beautiful and is so functional. I love it! It has made my traveling from festival to festival very easy.

  • Jean, what a neat idea for carrying and displaying your jewelry. And how fortunate you are to have a creative friend to build it for you. A very handy way to store your jewelry between shows too. I love the cleverness of the belt for the carry strap!

    That case came out great! Could you give us an idea of the dimensions and how heavy it is?
