The Iconic Blog, Live a Life Less Ordinary
  • Accessories as Art

    November 22nd, 2011

    I am a sucker for jewels. If it is sparkly and fabulous I have to have it. Now try as I may I am unable to wear all of my favorites at once so I have to settle on displaying them around my home.

    In my opinion, gorgeous gems on black velvet busts and in beautiful trays is as good as art gets!

    If you collection is overflowing like mine, try grouping objects by designer or color.

    Store additional pieces in a chest that makes your whole collection feel like treasure!

    I also adore displaying my jewelry mixed in with books. They are such an unexpected touch on a bookcase.

    How do you display your jewels?

    1. Love jewelry displays. I also like the idea of pretty bowls with necklaces cascading from them. As for the black busts, you can purchase those from Michael’s for less than $10 each. Actually I used several this summer for a rummage sale and I believe the presentation made the jewelry sell much faster. we also used black felt fabric over the table as well. Everything just glittered a bit more in the sun against the black backdrop.
