Ta da! Isn't she beautiful?!
The reason I need such a magnificent piece of functional genius is that I'm quickly running out of creative ways I can display my pieces at Art Trail. My mother-in-law generously made me two crepe-covered neck forms that look like this, which I use all the time, but the drawback is that I can only put one, or at the most two, necklaces on each of them. And I have a lot of necklaces. So this seems to be the most perfect solution, as I actually did go on an Etsy and craigslist search a while back for vintage busts, but if I can make my own, and if, like this one, it has the added advantage of resembling a sweet Victorian silhouette, who needs overpriced antiques?
Here's how she was made (full instructions with the photos here):
