a jewelry tree

today i found a tree branch with which to make my jewelry tree. and by make, i mean put the branch in the thrift store vase, and hang my necklaces on it. my kind of effortless functional art.




it is exactly the branch i had in mind, except it's not cherry or apple, which would have been my first choices because of the lovely bark. but i am very pleased, nonetheless.

It is wonderful! I love branches and am always searching for perfect ones for different things. Are we long lost sisters? I have one larger one set up in the window of our garage for a pair of curtains that I have never found. It has been there for 6 years. haha!

Oh,WOW, what a brilliant idea, to use a real life branch for hanging jewelry. I have spent *too much* money in buying jewelry displays, and such a simple and natural idea never occured to me. feel free to visit my blog as well: http://acircleofquiet.typepad.com/
