How to Organize Your Jewelry

I posted a few weeks ago about the crazy awful mess I call my jewelry drawer.  It's so bad, I can hardly figure out what I'm going to wear each day because I can't see it all due to the disaster the drawer has become. My necklaces are tangled, earrings are scattered and bracelets are disheveled so I decided to do something about it.  Here's what my drawer looked like...


A few Pinterest inspirations later...

And here's what I did...

 It was so easy!  I bought one of those boards I showed you all yesterday from my Franklin Festival Finds and mounted the necklaces with tacks and the earrings with fishing line. I secured it on the wall with mounting strips and a few minutes later, I'm organized.  Here's a few pointers if you want to do something similar....
Buy a picture frame, take the glass out, and place a cork board covered in your favorite fabric behind the frame to get the look you want. You don't have to feature all your jewelry, just the pieces you wear the most and you can rotate them out as you find new must have baubles. 

 Lay your bracelets out and find a fabulous box to include your rings in, like the one here from Pottery Barn, and you'll never have to look again for your favorite piece of jewelry.

Do you like what I did?

  6. Great way to organize your jewels! The only suggestion I have for you is to make sure your silver pieces are in a box v on the pin board. You'll find that it tarnishes very quickly when exposed to the air. You can also pick up a polishing cloth which is fast and easy to shine up that silver! LOVE Pinterest ... I am completely addicted. I just 'followed' you. I have a board dedicated to jewelry display because I have the same problem! too many jewels lying around :)
