Today I’m going to share how I made the necklace stands for my curio, which you can see here. The best part is that they’re sturdy and don’t topple over. I primarily use glass beads when making necklaces, and they can be pretty heavy.
The supplies you’ll need are a 4” wood circle plaque, a 5” wood square plaque, 5/8” dowel, and 1/2” cup hooks.
Cut the dowel to your desired length. Mine are 10 inches. Drill holes in the centers of your plaques to fit your dowel. Then measure, mark and drill your round plaque for the hooks. I was able to fit 10 cup hooks at 1.25” intervals. I used a dremel tool to drill the holes.
Super glue the pieces in place. At this point you can glue a wood finial to the top. I glued a plastic round flat piece to the top of mine, because there was no room in my curio to add a finial. Once the glue dries spray paint if you want or leave them natural. You can get an even more sophisticated look by faux marbleizing the bottom plaque.
Screw in your cup hooks, and hang your jewelry. That’s all there is to it. The effort is minimal. I don’t have room in my curio to add one, but you can attach a tiny swivel turntable to the bottom. Do you have a flimsy necklace stand that flops over?
