If you're looking for a good way to display your earrings, you could get clever like Laurence and create cool-looking earring storage from old badminton rackets. [photo used with permission]
Or you could buy a lovely earring organizer from Joanna Price of Mirkwood Mercantile — made from a recycled picture frame, decorative paper for the backing, and fiberglass mesh. Joanna has a number of other designs available, too.
The WOW earring organizer also uses the mesh idea — but unlike the others, this organizer could hang in your closet.
Of course, you don't need to go with mesh. Here's a lovely earring tree from Barclay Fine Woodworking. This is the 36-pair size; there are also smaller trees, to hold either 16 or 24 pairs — and larger ones, to hold 48 or 60 pairs. The trees are available in cherry, walnut and curly maple.
So many earring racks are made of wood — and while I love wood, it was also nice to see this one made of steel, from Reed Creek Welding. It holds 32 pairs of earrings, and comes in 15 different colors — and can also be made with one color fading into another.
For a very different look, you could get a ceramic earring holder from Barbara Lund; these holders come in a wide range of colors, and have 50 holes.
And finally, I just had to show you the earring stands made from cheese graters.
