Side Dish

Currently obsessed with using dishes – plates, bowls, teacups – to stash and elegantly display jewelry. I wrote this post about using a card catalog for other organizational purposes and this new obsession is kind of in the same realm of upcycling. It’s kind of nice to give a new life to something beloved like a vintage heirloom plate passed down from your grandmother. I swear my future home will be filled with beautiful pieces that are multi-functional. Some inspiration:

And my own take on it – snagged this half dipped plate in the sale section of Anthropologie and immediately adorned it with my favorite jewelry from you guessed it… I love the contrast of edgy metals on the backdrop of dainty pretty. Jewelry by Hello Again Vintage, Nuda, and Sewsephine.
