Jewelry mannequins were something totally new to me in 2007, when I first wrote about them. Now they're a familiar option - but the choices have changed over the years, so it's time for an update.
First, let's admire the mannequin jewelry organizers from YoungWorks; they're all hand-made. This one wears a Victorian-period style gown, but many different styles are available. Update on Oct. 18, 2011: I don't see an jewelry mannequins at this site any more.
EchoMerx makes a wide range of jewelry stands. One of the more unusual options are the butterfly ladies, such as this one. Update on Feb. 9, 2011: The "jewelry stand" tab on the EchoMerx web site now takes me to JewelryNanny, which has the butterfly ladies.
Over in the U.K., you can get jewellery mannequins from Home Interiors. Update on Oct. 18, 2011: This product line appears to have been discontinued.
Lady Sophisticate has some unusual mannequin jewelry organizers, including these African-inspired ones. Update on Oct. 18, 2011: Lady Sophisticate no longer carries these products, but I found them here.
Finally, the dress frame jewelry holder is another, related choice. "Drape with jewelry or push earrings and pins into the foam/linen bust."
