I am left with several pieces that I try to keep organized and accessible. I have tried many different methods, but I can never stick to ridiculous systems. I like to take jewelry off and toss it aside. I don't want to wrap it in velvet and carry it down to a vault.
Here are a couple of ways that I have come up with to store my jewelry and still keep it easily accessible.
I made this jewelry tree to hold everything (rings, necklaces, earrings, jewelry, bracelets), the only thing it doesn't really hold are post earrings (see below for another option).
To make your own jewelry tree you will need:
- Container. I used a glass vase, but you can do what you like.
- Rice. You could also use dried beans, sand, stones, etc.
- Sticks. Choose ones with lots of branches.
- Paint and brushes
I am vegan which means that I don't eat eggs (among other things) and until recently the egg tray in my refrigerator was about as useful to me as a pair of chaps. Then one day, the clouds parted and a beam of light shot down from the heavens and onto the empty egg tray; I had an epiphany. I could use this egg tray for jewelry storage.
I just toss in my earrings or rings and they are nicely separated and stored. A miracle? Perhaps.
Do you have any storage/organization tips to share?
