Everyone knows these basic looking bracelet holders, they are sold in nearly every craft store. I have one and they work fine, but I wanted something different. I checked on line - everywhere from eBay to Esty and a bunch of jewelry sites to find something different or unique and still didn't find what I wanted. So, I came up with my own and thought I share it here.
Of course, I didn't think about taking photos until I was already into the making phase . . . any idea as to what this is? Well, here is a guess - I picked it up in one of my favorite alternative jewelry makings stores. The hardware store.
It's a foam pipe insulator and very inexpensive. They are obviously longer, this is just a left over piece. It's easy to cut, just use a craft scissors.
You could leave it this way, glue it or . . .
The front roll was a first try. I had wrapped it in fiberfill first, then covered it in burlap.
I used embroidery thread to close this one, just did a simple cross stitch. It worked OK for men's cuffs, but I wanted something lighter and smaller for women's bracelets.
I just cut a piece of fabric to line the bottom to give it a more finished look. You could paint just the bottom or the whole thing, it's whatever look you like. For a shop or craft show, a long corsage or craft pin stuck in through the bracelet into the foam would also keep them more secure.
There you go. Pretty simple, the cost was less than the craft shop variety and it's easy to use any color that would look best with your jewelry, either for yourself at home or for a shop or craft show display. If the holder or box was larger or wider, several rolls would fit and help save table display space, too.
