    hanging plates/dishes on a wall

    I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas on the best way to hang a plate on the wall. I have two small 'Moomins' dishes that were hung up for about a year using velcro tape (the super strong version), but both of them fell off in the last two weeks (possibly because of the hot weather)- luckily neither of them broke but i'm wondering if there's a better way to hang them up. They both have tiny holes on the back to put a wire through, but I know that using wire on plates isn't such a good idea as it can crack them- any thoughts?

    I think those are the things that I remember hearing can really damage plates- it was on Antiques Roadshow or something- one of the experts was complaining about people using them as they could chip plates. It seems strange that they would do that as they are designed for the job...thanks for the link anyway!

    Ooh thanks for the links I should say- I wonder why I think that it will damage them when even Martha suggests using them...do you ever get a 'fact' trapped in your head without knowing where you heard it first?

    i guess you could cushion with little bits of felt or a clear rubbery material if you're worried... or maybe coat the wires that are in contact w/ the edges of your plate with clear silicone sealer?

    I like to keep plates on a shelf rather than using the brackets.
    You can find some nice wall shelves online that are fairly cheap. They just need to have the indent line so the plates don't move.
