For whatever reason, last night, as we were waiting for the New Year to roll in, I got a wild hair in my bonnet to make a new project.
I have a bunch of pearl jewelry. A couple of years ago, I had a jeweler separate the fake from the real pearls for me. When I got home, I put them into separate hard cases, so they wouldn't get mixed up again.
The wild-hair-project that I thought of was to make two jewelry rolls, one for each of the pearl jewelry. I did a Google/Image search for inspiration, made a practice jewelry roll for the fake pieces and then, a nicer roll for the real pearl jewelry.
I was exceedingly pleased to be able to make each one with supplies I had on-hand ... fabric, batting and zippers. The jewelry rolls feature a zippered compartment for each of the pearl jewelry piece, lined with a soft material for the pearls to rest against, and a separating zipper on the outside to secure it. I identified each roll with an embroidered label ... which is getting kinda fancy but I really DO need to use my embroidery machine more! :-)
Here's a picture of the jewelry roll for the real pearls:
