Organizing Jewelry

Jewelry is so pretty, so fun to frustrating when you're in a hurry and it's all tangled up in a messy drawer.

If you love your jewelry, why not picture frame it and decorate your bedroom with it? Or create a pretty display on a dresser or desk. You can live in your own little jewelry boutique and have the pleasure of seeing what you want to wear.

How To Do It

  • Staple chicken wire to the back of an empty window frame
  • Hang earrings and necklaces directly on the chicken wire

How To Do It

  • Picture frame same as above
  • A tiered candy dish separates lots of pretty little things
  • A dowel in a square stand uses vertical space. A paper towel holder would work, too
  • Tiny condiment bowls are perfect for rings and pins
  • Notice how the different heights create interest and reduce clutter

Divide Your Drawers

Fill your drawers with organizers, long ones to stack bangle bracelets and smaller ones for pins, rings, earrings.

Hang earrings from the rim of a tea cup, coil bead necklaces in the bottom, and arrange everything else on the saucers. A purple drawer liner (fabric or paper) makes it that much prettier.

An ice cube tray separates rings, earrings, and thin necklaces. There is no limit to the creativity. What can you re-purpose to organize your jewelry? Organizing Jewelry
