Here's a DIY jewelry maker! I made this from random things I found at home, you can go to the store to buy the items to make this and it should cost less than $20.
List of things I used to make it:
   -Wooden frame (mine was a bottom of a shelf)
   -White spray paint and a clear spray coat
   -Cardboard (backing)
   -Aluminum foil duct tape (really sticky tape!)
   -Mesh, wire or fabric with larger holes
   -White piece of fabric
   -Nails and screws
   -Frame hooks
   -Cup hooks (hooks with rubber over it)

So this is how the frame started out looking, it use to be a bottom piece of a shelf so the top and bottom just look like unfinished wood because you wouldn't be able to see it on the shelf. I covered it with two coats of spray paint and one coat of gloss clear spray.
Then I traced the frame onto a piece of cardboard and cut out the backing with a utility knife, or scissors...I don't remember.
 Found this screen mesh lying around so I used it on the backing to hold earrings.
Taped a white piece of background fabric to the cardboard with the foil tape!
TADA! Did the same with the screen mesh.
Took the screws and screwed on those frame hooks! One on each side. Then hammered the cardboard backing into the wooden frame.
I bought seven cup hooks, two were larger to fit chunkier necklaces which I put on the outer sides. Then I measured out the seven hooks and drilled holes into the frame.
It's DONE! Now I piled all my stuff onto it!! Good times. Enjoy!
