Jewelry Screen
Designed by Melony Bradley


When you see the “helping hand” symbol on a project, it means you may need adult supervision to do the project. Always cover your work surface with a mat or some type of protective covering like wax paper or plastic. Always use care when using tools or a heat source. Be careful and safe!

Keep your earrings and swap pins tidy in your room with this easy to make jewelry screen.
