I was cleaning out my jewelry “drawer” and I realized that I have never shared with you how I organize all my bracelets, baubles, necklaces, and more. I like the look of jewelry boxes, but I am not sold on their function. If you have a lot of jewelry, it seems like things can get tangled and lost in a mass of beads and diamonds. Yes, lots of diamonds. 🙂
What I wanted was some way to easily organize all my jewelry and if possible, be able to see all the beautiful colors present in my collection. So, here’s how I decided to do it.
This is an old printer’s drawer and you can find them fairly easily at your local flea markets for about $20 or on etsy.
In fact the one above is available for sale by Ugly Santa
for about $35.
I really like the fact that the built in dividers make it super simple to organize everything from your earrings to random knick knacks. And the colorful scene all the jewelry creates just makes me happy!
I like to use the small squares for earring pairs or rings. . .
and the large squares for necklaces and bracelets.
I also have places for: my chapstick, a piece of net from my conference basketball championship, paper clips (I use these to make my bra a racerback when wearing a tanktop), extra beads, and more!
I display some of my nicer jewelry pieces on my Greek Goddess bust, but I think this is the perfect solution to house all my costume jewelry. What about you? How do you store all your accessories?
