DIY Jewelry Frame

I've been ruminating on the problem of what to do with my french hook earrings for a long time. Recently I envisioned the solution, and today: Execution! I love it! First, I bought a frame for just a couple of bucks at a thrift store:
The design was cool, but the color was ugly. I removed the glass and the backing, and spray painted it. Oh, silver spray paint, what would I do without you?
Then I hot-glued a screen (like the kind from a window) to the back of the frame. If it had been wood, I probably would have staple-gunned it. Then I trimmed the extra screen off with scissors.
I attached hanging wire to the back and added S hooks for necklaces.
VoilĂ ! So easy!

Thanks gals! Oh, I forgot to mention my interim solution if you're having the same problem - hanging them all around the rim of a martini glass.

I love it when people say I'm right.

oh, but if you use your martini glasses that way,you'd have to drink your martinis out of a solo cup! No way!
