how i Decorate with Jewelry

I never realized how much I depended on my jewelry to glamorize my house.  I'm not exactly sure when it started but the other day I noticed the trend.  Although I buy lots and lots of constume jewelry, I don't always wear it, however, looking around, I see where my house is benefiting from my jewelry  ;)

Maybe it was the earth tones that lured me to use these necklaces on my breakfast table...








My kitchen counter vignette has a old wooden cross dangling from wool twine...




...that trails from my Jamaican Mountain coffee





This anklet was made for me by my son years ago






I have it encircling my kitchen clock










This old pearl necklace adds a tidbit of elegance entwined in the floral arrangment I have sitting ontop of my dining table.











And the dining chairs were adorned with pieces of sheer fabric held together by a big decorative ring










I gracefully draped these necklaces around this crusted jar to give it more eye appeal











I took one of my bronze metal necklace's and dangled it from the cup holder in my bath










I used pearls to adorn my Armoire














Then there was the necklace that I had to tarnished to make this clock a little more "grandfatherly".










There you have it.  Like I said I can't remember when I started this trend, and I guess some might think it's a little unorthodox, but it's definitely a cheap economical way for me to add a little "umpf" to my decor.  LET YOUR CREATIVITY FLOW!

Wow, you weren't kidding when you said you adorn a lot of your decor with jewelry! I have to say, my favorite is the way you decorated the backs of your dining chairs! Just beautiful!

I like it! The layering of different items looks really pretty and adds great interest to your decor. I would never be able to do this, though, because my daughter would move everything around. ;) Love the clock too!

I have done a little of that and I love it. I am wanting to make a bouquet with brooches. Ideas for it are all over the web. Thanks for sharing your jewel ideas with us.

I think it's a great idea Sherry - after all you can't wear everything all of the time, so why not decorate your house as well !

Sherry! Leave it to you to come up with such a great idea. I love that you have a collection of beautiful jewelry that you don't just wait to wear to appreciate BUT that you decorate and are able to appreciate on a daily basis.
