A Screen. Jewelry. Sparkle too.

  • Is your jewelry displayed in a super cool way?
  • Is it easy to grab when you're flying out the door on your way to work or play?
  • Do you hang your earrings up or fling them in a dish? How about this?


This is Decorating co-captain Linda's 'jewelry box'.
The screen is from a haul we picked up free. She added the '63.' 
(Tim Holtz scrapping supplies.)
Notice the wire hung across to hang danglies.
The spool idea came from the Bachman's Spring Ideas House.
The little drawers were $4. each. They hold bracelets.
The clip is  junk genius.


I headed over to paint "sparkle."
I used my usual technique.
I played with fonts and changed the 'S', making it much bigger then the rest.
Then printed it on my pc.
Taped it in place, then traced the letters with Transfer Paper underneath.
I painted it with silver paint. (Ceramcoat)
This took all of 10 minutes to do.
  •  When the paint is dry, lines can be erased with a magic eraser.
 



Famous Quote of the Sparkle Painting Night:

Quandie: How do you do that so easily?
Lacqui: Huh? I just paint it.
Quandie: It must be the paintbrush.

Sigh. Followed by fits of laughter.

Now go take your jewelry out and make it fabulous.

  1. I still can't believe I said "it must be the paintbrush" ...

    Seriously folks, Jeanne makes this look easy, but for some of us (me) the letters just look all wonky in the end.

    She has a talent for making that brush do exactly what she wants it to!

    Thanks again Lacqui!

  2. Well, whatever it is, you certainly have a wonderful talent for lettering. I am quite jealous that the Bachman house wasn't nearby. This is a great idea!
