I recently purchased this display which I thought would be perfect for showing off a choker style necklace as well as an earring. I was sadly disappointed, however, when I discovered that there wasn't a single type of earring that would fit through the hole on the ear. The hole was at the wrong angle and the "ear" was too thick for any ear wire to go through. Since the display is made from plaster, drilling a larger hole was not an option. The piece sat on my shelf for several months before I finally came up with an idea.
I took some photographs of the display. I reprinted the picture in life-size on a heavy cardstock and punched a small hole in it. I then placed my earring in the hole and photographed it again.
I like how it shows the proper size and length of the earring and it works for both dangle and post styles. I've learned that if something doesn't work just the way you want it to, it always helps to improvise.
