Jewellery Holder

Posted: Oct 17 2012


We found ourselves saying "why didn't we think of making this", again!! Happens ever so often. Every day pieces can evidently be transformed so easily!

You need:
- Porcelaine. I used a big plate, a smaller plate and a saucer for the layers as well as two egg cups for the stands. You can also use tea cups or candle sticks as stands if you prefer.
- Super glue
- A piece of cardboard
- A toothpick or skewer

How to:
1. Start by putting some glue on the cardboard.
2. Using the skewer, generously paint the edge of the egg cup with the glue.
3. Turn the egg cup over so that the side with the glue is face down and carefully press into the middle of the biggest plate.
4. Put more glue along the edges of the top side of the egg cup.
5. Press the second biggest plate onto the egg cup.
6. Repeat the previous steps of applying glue to the bottom side of the egg cup and then press onto the second plate. 
7. Add glue to the top of the egg cup as before, and then put the final small plate (or saucer) on top to complete the stack.
8. Leave to dry overnight before you deck it out in your precious jewels! And remember to always lift the stand from the bottom, the glue should keep it together but to be on the safe side be delicate with it.
