Necklace & Jewelry Organization

As the closet clean-out continued, next on the hit list was an array of jewelry I never wear.  Truthfully, I'm terrible at accessorizing, opting most days for diamond stud earrings or simple hoops, and James' birthstone necklace or my favorite "j" necklace.  But, I'm hoping weeding through and giving away what I haven't worn in forever and keeping everything else out in the open will encourage me to wear it more.  I think it's working because I've worn three different necklaces this week.


I've got my necklaces hanging on a piece of foam board that I covered with decorative paper.  I used thumbtacks to hold the necklaces.  


Thumbtacks also hold some of my earrings. 


Little trays are perfect for keeping bracelets and watches. 


I've had the first jewelry board for awhile, but I just made this one, since I now have extra room with lots of clothes donated. 


Bowls from Anthropologie and West Elm hold bangles.  


I really like having everything were I can see it.  The decorative paper is from Paper Source.  The silver thumbtacks are from WalMart.

  4. This is a great idea and even better - it looks great too! My "real estate" for storing stuff is pretty limited at the moment, but this inspires me to try to think of a better way to keep my jewelry so that I actually see it, so I will wear it more!

  12. I like this because it's easy to switch out the paper. :) There are so many options for jewelry storage these days, I like your option. http://seven-one-six.blogspot.com

  13. This is such a great way to organize jewelry. It looks so pretty Megan. Mine is in a couple drawers and I tend to reach for the same earrings, bracelet and necklace all the time. You've inspired me to find a place to organize like you have. It's fun to switch out what we're wearing. Love your jewelry....especially that turquoise beaded necklace and pretty wrapped bracelet. Enjoy your weekend!
