Jewelry Roll

I finished making my jewelry roll. I will use it to carry and displayed my jewelry at craft shows as well as my NSH Convention/Symposium. I think it will really be a more useful and lighter weight option than carrying plastic boxes. Let me know what you think. I made two rolls without using any kind of pattern. The bar for the rings snaps on one end so I can slide the rings on and off.

Today I am off to JoAnn's Fabrics to purchase supplies to make a jewelry roll that I can carry and display my jewelry samples in where ever I travel. I will be going to the NSH S/C in Vancouver, BC in September and need the lightest weight possible way to carry and display my jewelry. I have been using boxes that I repurposed but decided it would be helpful not to have the extra weight of the box. It is so important to have the jewelry displayed easily and for the display to be attractive. What I have in mind should do the trick. I'll post a picture when I get finished. I have been busy beading and learning new designs.
