DSC01542I saw this lovely hand painted Japanese teacup and saucer at my local Goodwill and it was love at first sight.  Then, the inspiration struck me.  Wouldn’t that be neat to hold jewelry on the top of your dresser? 

Add a lead crystal candlestick to give it a bit of heft.  You begin by gluing the candlestick to the saucer using E6000 glue.  Then glue the cup to the top of the candlestick (where the candle is inserted). 

Let it dry overnight and you have a lovely way to organize your jewelry.  You can hang your earrings along the lip of the cup, place a few bracelets inside and lay rings in the saucer.

The longest part of the process is finding the right cup, saucer and candlestick.
