Transformed :: A Place for Safekeeping

Brainstorming a DIY Jewelry Tree | Claire Zinnecker for Camille Styles

Happy Thursday y’all! Claire here with a fun little DIY I’m excited to attempt. Every girl needs a place to stash her most prized jewelry, and my roomie Chanel is no exception. We’ve been on the hunt for one that she can display on her dresser, but haven’t found the perfect one yet… so I’ve decided to make one! I found some really inspirational ideas out there, and since most of them use natural or repurposed elements, I’m certain I’ll have no trouble creating something interesting and inexpensive. But before I get started I’d love to hear from all of you: Which of these jewelry trees would you like to see re-interpreted and recreated? Leave a comment with your thoughts and ideas, and stay tuned for the reveal in two weeks!

    toss between the branch one and the rake depending on your decor….

      I really like the first one! There’s a certain elegance to it that I love seeing combined with jewelry.

      Me too! Love the sturdiness of it as well! Thanks for sharing your opinion!

    Could you do a twist on the rake? I like the look and shape of it, but it is rustic and could look out of place in a modern room… any way to make it fit in a modern space?

      paint it?

      Painting it is definitely an option! Or finding perhaps a less vintage rake as well! Thanks, Lauren!

      that’s funny…..but honestly, the antlers wouldn’t work for me….poor babies!

        You can actually use what they call “sheds” which the deer naturally sheds (hence the name) and so it’s cruelty free! I would never hurt an animal either, Karin! :)

      Maybe I’ll end up making all three as birthday presents down the road :)

      I know! Love how delicate it is….and I think Chanel is wanting one like this too….and it IS for her after all! Thanks, Laurel!

    Funny, I almost bought the silver one but it’s too small! I’ve been trying to figure out how to recreate it but all the branches keep breaking ;-) Can’t wait to see what you do!

      Thanks for the heads up! If I go with this one I’ll have to find a strong enough branch I suppose.

      Ooh that one’s pretty too! And I like that it looks vintage-y…

      Love that too! Oh my so many great options!

    I think the antler is the most original… but I’d probably go for the top tree branch-style one. It would be such a pretty touch to my bedroom or bathroom!

      It definitely is more your exquisite style to be sure! Thanks love, see you soon! xo

      I have the tree branch from west elm and while it’s beautiful to look at on my dresser, it’s not very tall and only holds a couple of pieces. aesthetic for me, also has to have function.

    The first one is definitely the my favorites for its simplicity! A DIY would be amazing to make my own :)

    • clairezinnecker

      The simplicity mixed with the bold metallic is definitely appealing, isn’t it? Thanks, Alice!

    The tree is a bit more elegant. I vote for the tree!

      Thanks! I think it’s elegant too!

    I love all of them but the antler one is really cool!! You could even use the bottom part as a place for rings if you if it didn’t have that other antler piece on it!

    • clairezinnecker

      Multi-use would be wonderful. Good idea, thanks Aubrey!

      That happens to be a jewelry box on bottom.

    Claire, I’ve been wanting a jewelry holder to hang in my closet on the wall! I would love some thing like the rake, but more modern. Help!

    Maybe a combo of the first two (using form of the first and both types of material). Don’t know how one would do it–but how cool would it be to have an antler dipped asymmetrically in metal coating? Or at least appear as such…

    Thanks Camilie for clueing the person on “sheds” that’s what I use, and the bottom piece is a jewelry box , I see most don’t even realize that, at show’s I leave the lid setting crosswise and it’s funny to see a light go off when they realize it.. I made This and many functional things from nature- bucknoriginals- Etsy. Ron Leard
    Thanks for the publicity.
