Organize your jewelry

 

These are our top tips for organizing jewelry! We must say it is quite a pleasure when all our necklaces, earrings, bracelets and watches have a nice place to call home and we think you'll agree. Whether you wish to put yours on full display or contain them away, take a little time to create a solution that works for you. Getting dressed will be that much easier!

 
 

Pretty display

Get creative with your jewelry collection and display it as a feature wall! It's pretty so you'll actually want to see it as you walk by. You could do a simple DIY project with a couple of branches and twine. Or with a bit more effort, construct a white-painted wooden board with a couple built-in shelves and a hanging rod. Or go for a decorative multi-rod gold-painted hanger. Whichever you choose, the result will be a bohemian, Free People kind of feel!

 
 

Arrange in drawers

Drawers make a great place for jewelry - they can be outfitted with velvet-lined trays to divide and conquer jewelry! Either line the entire drawer with velvet/felt to make a large area for laying things out, or use divided trays in configurations that specifically match your needs. If you're not using traditional trays, you could make your own dividers with small glass bowls and ceramic egg cartons! A key point: you don't want your jewelry sliding around on open areas of wood  or plastic - they're slippery and jewelry won't stay in place.

Plus, they're pretty enough to leave on a dresser top or closet shelf!

Closet shelves

Another way to store jewelry is by creating a display on your closet shelves! This keeps it hidden but also in full view when you're in your closet. If baubles are a big part of your fashion style, this can be a good solution since you'll get inspired and create outfits starting with a piece of jewelry. Prioritize your beauties!

Hang on wall

Keep your jewelry in sight, yet clean and orderly, by hanging it in neat rows on a wall! This works well in a dressing room where you have wall space but are short on shelf space. Use strips of wood or metal hangers with hooks to hang up necklaces, earrings and bracelets.

Dresser top

Make a mini display on a dresser top or other surface in your bedroom or closet. Wood, acrylic or metal jewelry stands are great for necklaces and bracelets. Try a traditional one specifically for jewelry, or transform something into one (such as a mini giraffe)! Shallow dishes work well for some rings or watches.

jewelry armoire

Jewelry armoires are so cute and they function beautifully! We love how they take up little space yet hold a lot of jewelry. Try one that looks like a gorgeous piece of furniture, one with a lidded mirror top, or one with a slim profile that attaches to the wall (especially great for small apartments).
