Hi, my wife has started making earrings that are slightly left field: http://www.hilldesign.co.uk
Not pushing them here as they are only for sale at local markets😀
Anyway, searched without success on ebay for large enough display stand that matched the oddness of the earrings.
So, I offered to make some stands out of Meccano. Unlike her, my creativity with Meccano is limited, so I have come up with a rather straightforward box shape.
I have quite a lot of Meccano that I have picked up with steam stuff at auctions.
Any links to reasonably simple structures that would draw some attention and work with what she makes very welcome😇
Cheers

What great ear rings, nice to see something a little different. I do a bit of jewellery making just as a hobby I wear some myself and give some as gifts.....Helen.

very unusual I would think there will be a lot of interest in them

I hope there is interest in them. Her first market is Helmsley in a couple of weeks and she (Mary) has invested a lot of hope and time in this. in this forum, there is always a positive and encouraging response to anything we make or do. A supportive audience.

Even support for this😀 thanks Martin

A bit different elsewhere so fingers crossed 🤞
