Jewelry Organization

My jewelry collection is pretty small by most standards.  However, I still feel the need to keep it organized so that I can easily see what my options are without having to dig through a bunch of necklaces and bracelets.  The fact that my bracelet/bangle collection is steadily growing also mandated finding a good system.  Here’s what I do:

This shot gives a general overview of how I organize my jewelry.  I hang my necklaces from a piece I put together with a some scrap wood I found years ago while hiking, some screw-in hooks, hemp and a staple gun.  This is one area that I see growing a lot, as I slowly acquire new staple pieces from Etsy.

This jewelry box is one of the ones that I inherited from my grandmother on my mom’s side.  While I love it for its sentimental value, it doesn’t leave me much room to grow.  I’ve been on the look out at antique shops and garage sales for something a little larger, but haven’t found anything yet.  I keep my earrings, rings, pendants and shawl pins in here.

My favorite part of my system is my new bracelet holder that I just made a few weeks ago.  I had been inspired by some metal jewelry trees that I had seen on Etsy, but they were out of my price range and didn’t really fit in with my aesthetic.  I had a bunch of bamboo knitting needles that I bought at a Joann’s closeout, so I used them, some crafting wire and a cool soda bottle to make this handy holder.  Eventually I would like to glue the bottle to a heavier base, because I’ve knocked it over a couple times.  Still, it’s very functional, very attractive, and lets me see all my bracelets at a glance without looking cluttered.

What’s your jewelry organization system?
