WHAT DO YA THINK??

I have been wanting to make one of these for a couple of years, but have been lazy about it, didn't think I could do it...bla...bla...bla....LOL...SOOOO....I got out all the jewellery I wanted to use, went to Michaels and scored a shadow box at 60% off, went to Wal-mart and happened upon the perfect fabric in the "ends" bin, got some pretty stick pins and off I went to create.

I made a "tree". I still plan on writing where each piece of jewellery came from and taping it to the back, but I do like how it turned out! I have pins from my mom, my two aunts, my grandmother, my husband's grandmother a tie clip of my dad's and some jewellery I had as a child!



What do you think of this creation...I am curious!
Have a great evening!

Marion, it is beautiful! What a wonderful creation and a way to enjoy the pins daily instead of them being hid in a drawer. Out of sight, out of mind! In sight, in mind!

Oh my goodness - what a clever idea. What a great way to show jewelry from family members. Truly a great momento! I love it.

That is just too cool. I have only seen one other one done. It is a great idea and a tribute to family.
