Finished Jewelry Display

... or at least mostly finished. The counter, jewelry and perfumes are  pretty much done, but there are still two shelves behind the counter that I need to fill.
The counter started off as a rather oddly shaped bookcase. I added some interest to the back of the shelf with strip wood and brass jewelry findings.

You can see that one of the flowers didn't quite glue flush against the counter. I used a little putty to fill in the gap. It was all looking a bit plain, so I brushed over the details with some gold rub'n'buff.

I hadn't glued the jewelry down yet, which is why some of the velvet displays are crooked in the photos. The two big perfume bottles photographed a little more red than they are in real life. The real color is a bit closer to purple.
 I only had one gold chain small enough to make bracelets. I got a bit creative with the no-hole beads in order to make each bracelet look different.


  1. All jewelery is very beautiful and your disk is very well made​​. It all looks like a million.

  2. Dear Eliza,
    Your jewelry looks amazing and it's displayed perfectly. How smart to use a bookcase as counter.
