Im very partial to religious inspired jewelry and I have a good collection of it.  This sweet piece, a Grace and Corazon, is French.
I had this French bottle drying rack (a repro) and thought it might help solve my dilemma.  
It had already been created to hang on a wall.
And the jewerly could just hang from its arms that were created to house upside down bottles.
This is a favorite Grace and Corazon piece.
The back reads Recognition of Faithfulness.  Love that!
I love old crucifices and rosaries.
This is a Julz piece.  Made from a key hole escutcheon, its a fabulous piece.
Speaking of Julz, I took this off her neck in Nashville.  She was modelling it for Annie of Grace and Corazon.  I just had to have it!
These pieces are from from Sally Jean (total) and Lisa Souers (470).  I believe in spreadin the love!
And this piece is from Beth Quinn Designs. I love the saying it contains, She follows her dreams.  
And when all is said and done, how does it look?  I organized them and layered them with like pieces together.  I think it works perfectly!

Let's just say, I have a jewelry problem....I don't have a good place to hold my jewelry when not in use.  And I have quite a bit of it.  From Julz, to Grace and Corazon, to Mimi Torias, along with some I've ordered online.  I quite simply needed something that could hold, well...a lot.  Here's  what I found to hold my necklaces.  Stay tune and I'll show you what use to hold my earrings, rings and bracelets.  Like I said.  I have a lot!

CottageElements writes: Julz, you're right. I have A LOT more pieces. I told Tracie from Histories she gets first dibs when I finally go through the rest. My problem is gonna be parting with any of it!! But, hey, I'm doing my part in helping the economy! LOL! And Jimbo, it does appear to be a work of art. Very chandelier looking if I do say so myself. But thanks for all you sweet comments!

EmmasNookandGranny writes: Pretty clever idea and it looks great, too. Your jewelry 'problem' is a real plus for the jewelry makers!! You might need to consider getting a second bottle rack for the rest of your collection. :) ~Marge Posted: 8:02 am on March 29th
