New Shutters for Table Display!!

It turned out to be a very busy day!! Started the day unloading my kiln of all the copper I fired last night. Got some of it photograghed and listed and even sold some of it, as well as some that's been in the shop for awhile as well as some finished jewelry....A very good day!

But today's blog is actually about these awesome new (old and crusty actually) shutters I found and purchased on Craigslist. Most of what I found was way too new for my purposes, then I found these nice well used ones. One especially is darn near rotted but it works for me, but it'll look great once it's cleaned up a bit more!!

The guy wanted way too much for them, way more than alot of the new shutters I had found for sale, but I ended up getting them for less than half what he wanted. Still too much considering the shape they were in but he's lucky that's what I was looking for lol!!

I'm working on earring cards at the moment, looking for somebody to design them for me. I could do it but I need to deligate something and this seems like a good choice. I didn't get in to the first show I was going for on May 7th so I have a little more time to work on it. I may create a few by hand to get a better idea exactly what I want.

These beauties sold...

And I listed more Components in my shop, and more to come.



  1. cool, I just replaced some bifold doors in my sons room, I haven't tossed them yet because I was thinking of cutting them in half and doing the same thing!

  2. Very cool!!! I am having pangs of jealous matter of fact lol Enjoy them. : )

  3. Beautiful shutters! Can't wait to see what you do with them... I have to admit that years after we moved and threw away a house-full of window shutters I'm kicking myself ;)

    And I really must bite the bullet one of these days and get some of your awesome components!

  4. I love the shutters! I think any way to make your beautiful creations stand out is a great idea!

  5. Great shutter finds! These will make for a really cool display. I can't wait to see how you use them! ~Val

  6. I love the window shutter display idea. I might steal it. teehee! I've been looking for something interesting to display jewelry on, and I didn't want to buy a ready-made display. This gives me some ideas. Thanks for sharing :)
