Fun idea for jewelry storage

Last May, I visited my home town and found that a craft fair called Sun Fest was in full swing.  I loved walking around the booths to see the different ideas that creative people come up with.  Unfortunately, everyone's browsing was cut short by a tornado warning, but not before I came upon a jewelry maker.  Her style was very unique in that she used old silverware to make earrings, bracelets, necklaces and other things.

At this point in my life I don't think I could do that sort of thing and will probably just purchase from her, BUT her display racks were AMAZING and such a fun idea for displaying jewelry!

So, I came home and finally found something at a road-side fresh produce stand of all places that would work to imitate this woman's idea of a jewelry display.  As you see (below) it is only a candle holder with china dishes on it.  The china is from my own cabinet, but if I were keeping this indefinitely or selling it, I would peruse the thrift stores for the perfect china plates to fit on each candle holder.

The silverware jewelry looked nicer, but the possibilities are endless with this idea, right?!
