Organising Jewellery

This is my jewellery area in my wardrobe.  I created this space to prompt me to wear my jewellery more often.  To have it easily accessible makes me wear it more often.

I made this jewellery holder, simply used a piece of wood and glued on some handles, then spray painted.

Bracelet and Earring holder from Howards Storage World (target and dollar stores sell similar items too).  Tulips from Earthborn.  Cyrstal’s heirlooms. 

This is my jewellery organiser before, getting rather full.  I used a key holder that I painted years ago.  Was perfect back then, but now my collection is getting bigger my new holder works even better.

Looks great Kat! I would have to clean out heaps of clothes to attempt something like this. Might be my next decluttering challange!

I LOVE this idea, Kat. I’m too embarrassed to show how I currently have them stored but since I’ve been “inspired” by Seven Cherubs’ and have been buying more pieces, I need to find a better way to store them. And I think you just gave me the answer!

Great way to store your jewellery and it certainly would encourage you to wear it all more.
My collection is much more modest and I actually put a photo on my blog a couple of weeks ago 🙂

That looks lovely, such a pretty space as well as being organised. Umm my jewelry is in a big jumble at the moment lol. But you’ve certainly given me some inspiration

Hubby hung up a hanger from Ikea on our mirror! It’s perfect – looks similar to your’s.

Gorgeous!! NZ blog readers – I have seen Spotlight with similar earring holders, might be worth a look 😉

At the moment I store jewellery in empty Ferrero Rocher boxes. I have about 4 stacked on top of each other. The boxes are so pretty, and I can see into them without having to unstack them all to find the items I want. I also use these boxes in other areas of the house, like the bathroom drawers and bedside drawers for holding small items.

I have a great hanging jewellery organiser I bought at the Tamborine Markets, its a gorgeous padded material with 40 clear pockets and hangs in the wardrobe on a hanger. I just absolutely love it! They are on the internet at:

This came at the perfect time for me, I’ve been searching for ways to store my jewellery, and yet see it easily, so that I wear it. Jewellery boxes are so pretty, but unless you make the effort to open them, you never wear half of the things.

Your right, I needed to see all my necklaces and makes it a quicker process when dressing. Would love to see what you come up with 🙂

My everyday jewelry is in a 4-drawer (9″wx15″h) mini dresser from Rubbermaid. Each drawer is divided using empty decorator soap boxes. Each box is lined with flannel so jewelry does not slide around when the drawer is opened and closed. Jewelry is colour-coded in the boxes so it’s easy to spot what I need.

Good (precious&expensive) items are not usually for every day so those are stored in an antique satin 2-drawer jewelry box with a lid that opens. I spent 4 hours on a rainy Saturday cleaning and organizing all the items so everything has a “place”. The best part is that now I know what I have, it makes deciding what to wear easier and careful consideration is given for any new purchases.

That’s a really clever way of organising your jewellery Suzanne, I like the idea of lining it with flannel so they won’t move.
