Prairie Hive Magazine has your best information when it comes to anything home related. Creative Director Sarah Vespasian stopped by to share ways to keep your jewelry stores safely and in a creative way.
"We have posted about jewelry storage before, but this time we are taking the show on the
road to Tulsa's Great Day Green Country to share some of our favorite ways to keep our
pretty things organized. I'm definitely an 'out of sight, out of mind' person, so for me,
keeping things easily accessible and in plain view is the best way to remember what I
have and avoid a rut!"
"I discovered these jewelry display trays a few years ago and am completely sold. They are
inexpensive and you can organize your bigger necklaces by color, season, or whatever
makes sense to you. Best of all, they stack (shown at top) so if you are limited on space
you can put two or three on top of each other and save room. You can purchase these
(and tons of other jewelry display/storage items) online at store fixture sites.
For smaller necklaces, a hanging display works best to keep them from getting tangled. I
used a frame with hooks mounted inside and a corkboard backing to add even more
necklaces in between. You can buy these, DIY them, or for an even easier option, use a
cork board, like Lisa did here. Wire mesh in a frame also works well for earrings," she said.
"For earrings, I think a good old lazy susan style holder is the best option. It keeps TONS
of earrings in very little space, and keeps them organized and from getting tangled
together. I found this one at Urban Outfitters. As I mentioned above, wire mesh is also a great option if
you have more wall space than counter space available," Vespasian said.
"For rings, the cute little ring trees are great - if you only have a few skimpy little rings to
accommodate. When you start getting into chunkier pieces, those suckers will tip over
with about 3 rings on them. Ceramic egg trays are the perfect size for those monster
cocktail rings, as are ice cube trays if you have an even larger collection. Ice cube trays
(and muffin tins, for that matter!) work great for pairs of earrings as well, so they can pull
double duty on your shelf."
"Speaking of things you find around the kitchen - a paper towel holder also makes a great
bracelet stand. It doesn't take up much space and works especially well for those with
lots of big chunky bangles. Just stack them up and you have them all in sight for putting
together the perfect outfit."
