If you really want a fun and challenging project, then take wire clothes hangers and untwist them at the top leaving the semi circular hook intact. Use a plier to straighten the wire stem. You can join a cluster together by either putting them into a glass vase or you can curve the base upward, secure it together with a wire so it can stand freely on its own. Hang your chains and bracelets from it. You can also shape a clothes hanger that resembles a multi-level bee hive, to hook your earrings on to. With both these ideas, you can spray paint, wrap ribbon or wool around the wires.
If you come across a vintage or decorative lamp shade that has a unique shape and design, then clean it up and decorate it. Add hooks at the top for your chains, beads and bracelets. It would be a unique center piece on your dresser.
Odd pieces of foam can be cut into any shape and then with an exacto knife you can cut slits so that you can place your rings into them. A decorative box can have a piece of foam fitted in and you have an instant ring box.
