MORE Artful Ways of Hanging Jewelry

Ekta's tailor dummy. Putting necklaces around a dummy's neck is a nice idea, too! Check out Ekta's dummy above, and Diane's bedroom, below (thanks, xojy!). I also love Emily Ballard's idea, seen on AT. Says Emily "And the necklace idea came from both Pottery Barn/Domino, I made them with small boards covered in foam and then with linen".
