Another fun jewelry display............

Okay, I am about to give suggestions for variations of this idea.........................
Being that I am not a huge fan of plastic and I am lucky enough to have a few vintage ceramic doll arms and legs, I might try this idea at some point.
If you study this image, you can quickly come up with a myriad of ways to add your own flavor using the same basic design.

Silhouette Jewelry DIsplay............

I found this post while searching for DIY jewelry displays. The jewelry display is created from a silhouette drawn on foam core with a basic acute triangle stand. I have added directions to decrease/increase the size. Hey, have a lady friend party and use your friends as models.............

1. Attach your foam core to a wall.
2. Set up a simple shop light to cast the shadow of your model.
3. Adjust the distance of the light to the desired cast shadow size.
4. Trace the shadow with a pencil. 
5. Cut out the silhouette with an X-Acto knife.
6. ENJOY!
