A while ago, my wife asked me if I could make here something to put her jewelry in. What I came up with is what I ended up calling a “Jewelry Board”.

I thought instead of hiding them, why not show them off on a Hard Maple Burl I had laying around. I ended up using 2 different wrought iron hook/nails, some for rings & earrings, bracelets, and necklaces.

I hung it on a bedroom wall between the entry and bathroom doors. It is the first thing she walks by on the way in, and last she walks by on the way out. Kind of like a loading and off loading zone :)

a neat way to display her jewelry and a nice piece of wood you used…i used the nails i had for a much simpler version…not worthy of posting …but the way you have done this is a great way for her also to unload after a day and put her most cherished pieces away for the day…

This is fun and practical. I like the simplicity of showing off the wood. You could also try covering the nail heads with matching buttons/covers of the same wood. I think you’re on to something here.
