This week it’s using your jewelry as decor, particularly with cool finds like this brass hand. These little object are whimsical, charming and hail from the 1970’s. I think I first noticed sculptural hands as holders in the Elements of Style book. I love how Erin Gates styled her jewelry and dressing tables for herself and clients so beautifully in it. The closet and bedroom photos are my favorite from this book.
About a year ago, I spied a brass hand at an estate sale for around $12. This one was a 70’s original with a bit of patina around the edges which made me love it even more. I love when I actually find something that’s been on my radar.
Right now I’m throwing all my bracelets on it for a pretty look. Here on my dresser it holds my costume and more colorful pieces.
Below, another cool object used as a necklace holder, again by Erin Gates in her closet.
Isn’t that tray cute too? I think that quote is by Jenna Lyons. No idea where she got that. Ben’s Garden has many similar ones.
Love the trinket bowls. I have a few from Anthropologie that I drop my rings and watching as well. Anthro always seems to have the prettiest choices.
