Creative Jewelry Organization

I cleaned out my closet around this time last year and did a pretty thorough overhaul... except for my jewelry. I had a nice little jewelry box and this silver coral branch thingamajig for my necklaces and figured my humble collection was organized enough.

Then I made this for my sister-in-laws birthday and decided I liked it so much I wanted one for my very own. Making the frame took less than 30 minutes (it helped that we had extra chicken wire laying around from building our coop) including spray painting. ...organizing all my jewelry? Now that took all of nap time. 

I love the fact that I can see my favorite pieces at a glance. It also forced me to narrow down the ones I display to those I wear most often. All the rest is on the coral thingamajig on top of my dresser so I can easily change things out as often as I want to. Note: This frame really only worked well for necklaces and earrings. 

I also discovered I have a pretty substantial bracelet collection - which was smushed in a jumble on a too-small dish. So I broke out a fancy-schmancy bowl we got as a wedding gift. Now my beautiful bracelets have some breathing room and I get to see the bowl every day. Love. 

And my watches (none of which work...) found a new home in this beautiful heirloom cup my grandparents gifted us when Sweet B was born.

My rings went on the too-small dish and barely take up any space. Obvious conclusion? I need more rings.

It's all looking much more sophisticated and I love that I can actually SEE my stuff now. Thanks sis for having a birthday so I could make myself a copy of your present. 


  1. I. Want. One.
    (I'm referring to the chicken coop jewellery holder. It sounds so red neck when I put it that way, doesn't it?!) :)
