Get Organized - Jewelry

There's something about the new year that makes you want to throw away all the bad habits and really get organized.  I have finally taken the time to organize my jewelry which previously found its way to various drawers, bowls and pockets.  I spent many days searching stores for the right jewelry holder.  Never happy with what I found, I finally got creative and took matters into my own hands.

Earrings and rings found their new home in tiered dessert trays.


Earrings that can't hang from the edge lay flat in this one.

Bracelets found a new home in a beautiful wooden bowl.

The old silver tray that I purchased from a thrift store is now the landing pad for all my watches and a couple of treasured crystal bottles.

Any organizing tips you'd care to share?

  1. Very clever. I just cleaned out my jewelry and downsized significantly but there is always room for improvement. I have a bracelet stand but it is such a pain, think I'm going to opt for the bowl idea instead!

  5. So smart! I need to make something happen with my jewelry too. It's pretty tragic how it's all piled up right now. I love the tiered stands with hanging earrings!

  8. I use an egg tray for my earrings. That's about the only jewelry I wear though so I don't need a ton of storage! Cute idea!!

  12. Love Carol! Did you paint the pieces too or were they all those fun colors? This is on my to-do list and might put to the top because I can do this project quickly. Does this also count for hubby's stuff too? My hubs needs a special area for his stuff :)

  16. Lovely idea! I picked up a bunch of beautiful (but very inexpensive) bowls and dishes in SF's Chinatown last time I was there. They are actually intended for food, but I use them to store all my jewelry.
