I have all of these lovely little necklaces and bracelets that have been wasting away, not being worn, because the state of my jewelry storage is a total joke. I’ve been meaning to make some sort of stand to hang necklaces on forever, but I wanted to come up with something that was super simple, affordable, and would last. I think we did it finally! You can make this copper and marble jewelry stand with just one trip to the hardware store and a few minutes at home. And now all of the jewelry that I’ve been ignoring for so long can come out and play.
- marble tile
- 2′ length of 1/2″ copper pipe (plumbing aisle)
- 3 1/2″ copper pipe caps
- 2 1/2″ copper tees
- threaded copper 1/2″ – 3/4″ adapter fitting
- optional: Dremel tool
Make Time: 10 Minutes (Plus Drying Time)
Step 1: Head to the hardware store! If you don’t have a Dremel tool or a way to cut copper pipe at home, after you purchase your pipe ask if someone in the store can help you cut your pieces. Lots of times they’ll cut for free, or there may be a small cut fee. Cut the 2′ copper pipe into the following pieces: two 5.5″, two 4.5″, one 3″.
Step 2: Once you’ve got all of your supplies home, wipe down the marble tile to remove any dust or debris. Put a layer of E6000 around the wide rim of the copper adapter and glue it down to the center of the tile. Wipe away any glue that seeps out. Allow to fully dry and cure.
Step 3: Assemble the rest of your stand. Insert one 5.5″ piece into the adapter and top it with a sideways tee. Insert the other 5.5″ piece above the tee. At the top, add a tee with the two sides pointing outward.
Step 4: Insert the 3″ piece on the side of the tee and finish it with a cap.
Step 5: Insert the two 4.5″ pieces on either side of the top tee. Finish them both with caps.
Easy peasy, huh? Now just deck it out with all of your trinkets and it’s all set. It’s so nice to have all of my favorites displayed in one place so I can just grab them so easily. And now all of my pieces actually get worn, instead of just waiting around in a forgotten corner of a drawer somewhere. Hope you try this one out! xoxo
