I used to keep all my jewelry hidden in boxes and drawers and I found I never seemed to wear any of it. As the saying goes, out of sight out of mind, and that is just what I did. I wanted to create a way to store while also displaying my jewelry. I came up with a few different ways to store all my different pieces, including a DIY project I did that I'd love to share with you all!
My biggest dilemma was all of my shorter, more delicate necklaces. I had nowhere to put them. All my longer, chunkier necklaces are draped across my mannequin and I didn't want my smaller ones getting tangled up in that. So what I did, I cut down a tree branch from my back yard, one with lots of smaller branches coming off. I trimmed down the branches and spray painted it black and there we had it. There are similar decorations and actual jewelry organizers that resemble tree branches, especially from Urban Outfitters, but mine didn't cost a penny!
For my bracelets, some I hang off some tree branches, but my nicer bracelets I use a bracelet display stand (they really don't have a name, but if you search that, they will come up). I found mine at Michael's Craft Store, but you can find them a lot of different places, especially on line.
If you are like me and love/have a lot of rings I suggest separating your rings into two different categories: "everyday" and cocktail. By everyday I mean, rings that have maybe only like a band or one stone in them (does not mean you can't wear cocktail rings everyday ;), unless the stone is bigger than an inch!, it would be cocktail, your bigger and more statement piece rings. For my "everyday" rings, I use a hand...sounds weird right? But I'll show you in a minute... And for my cocktail rings I put them all in a small glass, cube. There are tons of different ways to store you rings, but it really depends on the type you have and the quantity to make sure you can store them neatly.
You might of had one when you first got your ears pierced, a little mesh stand to hang earrings off. I think earrings can be one of the cutest things to display. Here's another semi DIY project you could work on to store your earrings: get a piece of mesh from somewhere like Home Depot, find a frame that you like, but down the mesh to fit the frame, spray paint the mesh and/or the frame depending on what you want, put the two together, hang it up on your wall! Here are some other ideas in the form of pictures.
Hope you enjoyed and found some inspiration to display your jewelry or even test out a new DIY project!
