Hanging Ceramic Vases: Seed Pod Collectors

These small hanging vases are intended to hold little dried flowers, seed pods, and the like (not for holding water).

They started out as teeny bead cones, then got larger and instead of poking a hole through it – they had hanging holes inserted by the main opening.

My daughter is a collector and brings me snippets of flowers all the time!

And these vases are the perfect vessel to hold those tiny treasures…

But displaying them for sale – until today – I really struggled with that. How to go vertical and stable?

I had these wooden spool holders and decided to wire them up with 16 gauge galvanized wire and create a hook. So far, I am 85% liking it. Not too sure I like them being see through – as that detracts from the pieces a bit (or maybe I am too critical?).

For now this works! I am prepping creatively for the Bead and Button Show in early June, where I will be selling with Nikki of Thornburg Bead Studio – booth #610.

And the wire hooks pop off, the rack folds nearly flat (ideal for airplane travel), and the ceramic vases get packed separately.

Each rack holds 15 vases – which I think is a great number to have to pick from.

This year I plan on designing out some really fun and fast bracelets and earrings for the show as well!

Sure hope to see you there!

And you can always shop my Etsy shop and website any time!

  1. These little vases are so sweet. I think they display is really inviting. It would totally draw me in at a show.

    Genius idea Marsha! And your bitty vases are so sweet. Are you vending at Bead Fest in August, or at least hanging out?

    I don’t know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everybody else encountering problems with your website.
    It seems like some of the written text in your posts are running
    off the screen. Can somebody else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them too?

    This could be a problem with my browser because I’ve had this happen before.
    Thanks
