I had been talking with my Dad about my need for a sturdy but pretty earring display case that I could use for both home parties and shows.
He made me a wood case that has a dark red felt back with 4 shelves.
My earring cards needed to fold to hold info about the materials.
The case is 2″ deep so my earring cards fit perfectly. I can get up to 5 pairs of earrings per shelf. (40 pairs per case.)
Since the case folds together, I usually just have to open it up, adjust the earring cards and Voila! I am ready to sell.
He used maple wood with a light satin finish and pegboard behind felt for the back.
It is 16w x 24h inches.
There are small brass hinges at the top and bottom. He put a brass latch hook to hold it together.
It is about 2lbs. and I have since put double canvas handles to make it easy to carry.
I loved this earring display case so much he made me a second one. Then he made a longer 36″ case with dowel rods to hang necklaces on.
Again very easy to store and set up display.
The only bad thing is that people need to unlatch the necklace to try it on. Good thing is that it does discourage theft.
My dad is the ‘bomb’ at 76.
Professional Earring Display Case
Simply beautiful, Cindi!
What a lovely upscale feel this elegant case gives your booth.
I love your side-folded earring cards, and the way your custom display case shows them off perfectly.
And how neat for you and your cool dad to combine your artistry and work together on your jewelry displays!
Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful project with us.
I like the look of the case. It is flat enough that it would be easy to store, but I am wondering how it “behaves” when you close it? Do you take all the earring cards out? You must because I think it looks like that would fall out. Now the necklace case would be good, because you could leave them in.

I love this your Dad did a great job on that- could sell them too. Great for home parties, as far as traveling with it, you could place some foam board inside to keep earrings from shifting. Good Luck!!

Thank you for sharing 🙂 This is a great idea. I do home shows once and a while but since I am disabled I it takes me forever to set up. Most of the work falls to my daughters which I feel badly about. This type of display will allow me to be more self sufficient. It will also cut set up and break down time tremendously. THANK YOU AGAIN FOR SHARING 🙂
Thank you for all the nice comments. I appreciate the idea about foam between the cases to keep the cards in place when closed.
I actually ended up using thin shipping foam with tiny velcro dots on the wood edge to keep everything in place and it works well.
My Dad is tickled pink to know he could help.
Do they blow over in the wind?
Your dad rocks!
What a wonderful piece your dad made. It’s all the more special because he made it. I inherited my mom’s jewelry armoire after she died..my dad made it for her. It’s so special to me, and originally I wouldn’t be interested in such a piece! Again, all the more special because it was made by those loving hands.
Your dad is your “go to” guy, right? I miss my dad immensely and I want to thank you for your article. It brought a smile to my face and a memory to mind….
