Great find! I remember the "dumpster diving" days in college when all the leases were up at the same time. Do you find that the spray paint rubs off on the hooks of the heavier earrings?

If any of you have the metal or plastic coated metal closet organizers , you can use these to hang your necklaces! I use Christmas ornament hooks and hang my necklaces!! Now I can see all of them. Let's face it if you don't see it you will forget you have it! I have an extensive collection of costume jewelry and can see it all!

This post is a bit of serendipity for me - I'm getting ready to sell my jewelry in my first highend arts sale and for economy's sake am building all my displays pieces myself, with mostly recycled materials.
I'm - covering several Pringle potato chip cans with suede cloth to display bracelets, For risers I'm using small boxes rescued from the cardboard baler at work covered with wallpaper I paid a dollar for at the savation army.
I work with copper wire exclusively in my jewelry and have been using a lot of discarded elecrical wire from a neighbor who's an electrician and plan on building my earring displays with the heavier gagues and some copper roof flashing left over from a coworkers home renovation. I've been going into thrift shops hoping to find something to build a necklace dispaly. Your post expands what I've been thinking were my best options.
