Recycled Treasures Jewelry Carousels

These jewelry carousels are a fun and easy project.  The bases are marble lamp bases but you can get creative.  Just screw on a crusty spindle or table leg.  The carousel is a lamp shade frame that I've rusted.   The taller white one has a silver lid handle for the top finial and the lamp shade frame hole was small enough to just add the finial.  The shorter one had a lamp shade frame with a larger hole so I used a doorknob escutcheon as a "washer" and then added a vintage porcelain drawer pull as the finial. You could just hang the necklaces on the frame but I like to use double sided hooks so that I can have the necklace and matching earrings together.  I made the hooks by bending recycled long rusty staples that I pulled from various salvage projects.

Pattern or design used: My own design - Sherri Spear
