As my first child grew from a new born baby into the first signs of movement I realised that I would have to baby proof my house. I had all my Jewellery displayed in my top draw of my bed side table- the perfect height for a toddler. Something had to be done!
I wanted to be able to see my Jewellery so I knew what I had quickly when I needed it before rushing out the door, or to survey when styling an outfit for a night out. I also wanted to keep the pairs of earrings together- one would always go missing.
I noticed that other Jewellery displays used mesh to hang earrings on, so I thought of putting mesh up on my wall. I needed however to include some design into what ever I placed on the wall- so I set about sketching some shapes, shapes that felt nice to me and that I would like to have up on my wall. As you can see I still have a lot more ideas
It soon occurred to me that want I wanted was not just a function display of my Jewellery but a sculptural art piece- one that would be functional and ever changing as my Jewellery collection expands and gets re-arranged.
I had so much fun designing these Sculptural Jewellery Displays that I decided to make some for my friends too. I even made some Kids ones, with plenty of room for hair clips!
I am still yet to design a very large one for myself exactly how I want it but I will- it will be designed to fit perfectly on a feature wall in my bedroom in our new house! I cant wait 🙂
Some of these shapes are ones that I would love to include into my architecture. Especially the organic shapes, as we are shaped organically, it stands to reason in my mind that we would feel better in a space that was shaped like this as compared to a square box- hopefully one day I will be able to explore this further……..
