Thanks to the brilliant fusion artist Ray Salas for my custom jewelry display cubes!


A year ago, I visited Japan and saw my friend using metal cubes to organize her earrings. I loved the idea, and immediately began looking for a similar design.

It seemed like a simple thing to find – a thin metal frame cube – but nothing for sale was quite right. So I decided to get them custom made! I posted an ad on Craiglist titled, “Looking for sculptors/3D printers.”


I never could have imagined that an artist like Ray Salas would answer my ad. You can see one of his lamp designs on “Upcycled Zine.” Here’s a video on “Interior Design Undercover” showing his intriguing chair design. When he first contacted me, I found his shop on Etsy and could not believe that he would be interested in my dinky $50 cube project!


He made the cubes exactly to order, and dropped them off at a parking lot with me. I love the cubes. My earrings fit perfectly. Everything is kept nice and neat!


Plus I like knowing that no one else owns these nifty cubes! I wonder what else I could get made on Craigslist…
