Su didn’t originally intend to share her whisk jewelry tree on her website, Vively Online. That is, until her husband saw it and said, “A whisk! You gotta be s&*##ing me. This is something you have to share.” I agree with him; if I didn’t know, I’d never guess it was made from any type of kitchen utensil! This ingenious design is perfect for displaying earrings, bangles, and other baubles atop a vanity or dresser. [how to make a whisk jewelry tree]
I’m thinking of making one of these as a display piece for craft shows; I make a lot of hook-style earrings and this is the perfect way to show them off while taking up minimal table space. Rather than spend money on decorative stones, I plan to use beach glass that I have collected along the Lake Michigan shoreline. You can also go hunting for pretty rocks almost anywhere!
