Glove Mold Jewelry Holder

In the back of a dusty antique shop, tucked under a shelf, I saw what looked like fingers poking out of the corner of a tattered cardboard box.  When I pulled the box out, it was full of these funny looking flat hand-shaped objects. I bought 12.

A couple of coats of paint, some distressing, a drawer pull finger ring.....

some fru-fru lace, buttons and junk jewelry and you've got a nice little jewelry holder for.....

the pretty little Roman glass and shell button necklace I made for my step-daughter.

Pretty good find, don't you think?  I've got more.  Eight are raw and ready for whatever comes to mind and three have had bases attached, are painted ,distressed and ready to dress up.  To purchase, visit my Etsy shop, Mamamotherlode.


  1. Love those gloves they are so unusual love what you did with them they are very beautiful

  2. I'm going to follow you right back! I love how you embellished the glove forms. I use those in my shop for jewelry but now they will be even prettier. I'll post some photos and link back to you when I do.
