Boxed Rings

This jazzed-up shadow box, retrofitted with a variety of hooks and knobs, shelters delicate earrings and chains from possible entanglements while turning them into objects of art.

How to

Select a shadow box or a small wine crate with a back and sides are at least 1/4 inch thick to accommodate the hooks Sand and prime the box, then apply two coats of semigloss spray paint

Cut a piece of decorative paper to fit inside the box, coat the back of the paper with spray adhesive and press into place,smoothing it from the center out to the corners with your fingers. Then lay out the jewelry where you'd like it to hand and screw hooks at the appropriate points

Finally add two evenly spaced saw tooth hangers to the box's back for a steady mount
