Jewellery comes in a variety of shapes and sizes, which makes at-a-glance browsing difficult if all your stuff is in a box. If you'd rather have a stand, but don't want to spend a lot of money, you can make a nice-looking one out of plastic bottles.
This stand is very simple, using the bottoms of plastic soft drink bottles as trays for rings, earrings, bracelets and other items. You can cut out the petals to let things dangle or slice off the bottom cleanly to store rings without them sliding out. Most of the stand can be made with simple equipment, but cutting out the petals requires a Dremel tool. Check out the source link for instructions.
