Are you a jewelry person?
For as long as I can remember I have enjoyed wearing jewelry. Whether it is a dainty necklace, chunky bracelet, or dangle earrings, I feel more “put together” when I have a statement piece of jewelry to compliment my outfit.
Knowing my love of jewelry AND desire to keep things organized, my parents gifted me with this beautiful jewelry box my Sophomore year of high school.
This jewelry box is perfect for necklaces, bracelets, rings, and stud earrings. However, I have quite the collection of dangling earrings. So much that the designated spot for earrings looked like this…
Even though I have a large collection of big earrings, I was wearing the same pair everyday because it was too much work to dig for the corresponding pair.
I don’t like holding on to things I’m not wearing/using. So, I knew I had to come up with an organization system where I could see all my earrings and have easy access to them.
Introducing today’s Tidy Tip Tuesday: Elevating Earrings!
I purchased this frame with chicken wire for $12 at a craft sale. However, you can easily make one for yourself at half that price! Simply find a frame at a thrift store and staple gun some chicken wire to the back. Or purchase one. They are all over Etsy!
I hung my chicken wire frame to the inside of my closet door and started hanging up my earrings.
I hung my earrings up by COLOR. Starting with ROYGBIV (red, organge, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet) and then continued with pink, brown, gold, silver, black, and white.
This is now what the top of my jewelry box looks like. Quite a difference, right?!
On the top right corner are all my stud earrings. Storing all my dangle earrings on a chicken wire frame freed up a ton of space! Sooo happy!!
This is now my view when I open up the closet to get ready for the day!
I absolutely love having all my earrings in plain view for me to see. And the fact that it is hanging inside my closet is super convenient! It’s organized. It’s practical. And it’s CUTE!
How do you organize your jewelry? I would LOVE to hear about/see how YOU display your necklaces, earrings, and bracelets as well as your earrings.
