Hi everyone - I have an abstracta display case. It is matte black. I
have been trying to make panels for the bottom space of the cases.
I’ve tried making pieces of fabric (silk) panels with tabs at the
top for the tubing to go through and elastic tabs at the bottom. It
is too droopy. I don’t really like the look. I’ve also tried
painting plywood (red), which turned out hideous. Staining the
plywood has been the best solution so far.
The fronts of the dispalys are pretty large, so the surface needs to
be broken up somehow. The final idea that I’ve come up with is
getting better looking plywood, staining it, and taking a strip of
the black silk down the front.
Before I do this, I wanted to check with other jewelers who use
abstracta and find out what you do for the empty space below the
actual jewelry case. If you have photos, I’d love to see them!
Thanks so much!
