Jewelry Display Using Handmade Paper
A few months ago, I was gifted with an incredible assortment of handmade paper. I was at a loss about what to do with it all. Since I don't really consider myself a 2-D artist, I wanted to see if I could find a use for it with my 3-D work with handmade jewelry.
I decided to see what I could do as far as sprucing up my jewelry display box that my father made me a few years ago.
I love texture, but I was getting tired of filling my box with various assortments of beans, lentils and rice as a background texture. So, I started experimenting with the handmade paper instead, and loved the layered look that resulted!
I can easily update and vary the look and feel of my simple display box by simply changing out the handmade paper and jewelry tags/holders.
I have always been so attracted to the rich textures and colors of handmade paper, but didn't really know what to do with them. I hope this idea offers some inspiring ways to update your jewelry box display!
