While doing a little cleaning last week, I had an epiphany of sorts. I found this lovely little chachka at Winners a little while back, and thought it would be a great way to display keep my jewelry off the counter in the bathroom. While dusting it, I thought how lovely it would look as a display unit. As luck would have it, I'd just come back from the dollar store with a few bags of river rocks that were slotted for flower arrangements.
I set everything up on the living room floor, and decided I liked it quite a bit. However, it needed more rocks! So, a second trip to the dollar store was planned, and 9 bags later, voilà:
I just love how the stones make the beads pop out.
So I played around some more with some of my old pieces that were kicking around. I like how the photos turned out, and have a few more ideas I'd like to try out. Like misting the rocks before laying the pieces down. That might look pretty nice too.
Come to think of it, I'm thinking I should put a few of these collars up on my Etsy site, seeing as collars are 'in' right now.
