I prefer shadow boxes for my jewelry. Why? Well, because I don’t like to dust. And I especially don’t like dusting earrings. They do require a good cleaning once in awhile, but weekly – it’s not going to happen.
This was pretty easy and quick to do. I waited for shadow boxes to go on sale, then purchased some jewelry chain and 1/2″ cup hooks. Using a small ruler I measured and marked where I wanted the cup hooks to go along the sides of the box.
After drilling a small hole, I used my small pliers to help me screw in the cup hooks.
Because I wanted my chain to be tight, I slipped the chain over the first cup hook, then slipped it over the corresponding cup hook before screwing it in.
And that’s how it’s done.
After it was done, I decided it needed a pop of color and added paper to the back.
Hanging in my closet and dust free.
