Creating your own vintage bust forms
For a while now, I've been occasionally hunting kijiji for a cheap dressmakers judy to use for photographing necklaces. I have some necklace display forms, but really wanted something close to lifesize for photography - or at least bigger than your standard display forms. I came across a tutorial online that I wanted to share with you all. The Polka Dot Closet shows how she altered some inexpensive larger jewelry displays. Maybe we can get Marg to order some of these larger displays - We'll have space once we move!
If you would prefer to go full on out DIY, you can create your own completely from scratch with this tutorial from Linda's Art Quilts.
Here are some decorating ideas no matter which method you choose:
While these may not have a subtle enough background to actually make your jewelry stand out, they're too awesome not to share.
