Clear some space
Jewellery is usually stored in the nooks and crannies of available space on our dressers. Either they are overflowing from its container or scattered in one corner while you hope it doesn’t get lost. You can consider investing in cheap plastic table size drawers, stuffing it with foam to store all your earrings and studs. Allocating a drawer for chains, rings and other accessories ensures they are safe and not in a tangled mess.
There are tons of creative and easy to make jewellery holders that require very little effort to make. Attaching hooks to clothes hangers’ act as a great way to store necklaces and chains. Convert an old picture frame to an earring holder. Spray paint a dried branch in your favouritecolour and hang your jewellery on the branches.
Do some shopping
If you don’t have the patience to make jewellery holders then you can resort to buying something to fix the problem. You can purchase hanging earring holders to store jewellery that is attractive and come in portable sizes. jewellery boxes made in various sizes and colours make your collection look chick and organized.
Up cycle products
Our homes are filled with items we no longer use or need. Instead of throwing them away convert them and change their purpose. An un-used ice tray can be used to sort out different earrings into the different slots. Metallic muffin holders that are too old to use can be scraped, painted and used to store bracelets, rings and any sort of jewellery that gets easily mixed up. The advantage is that all these items fit into drawers and are not only reusable but also space economic.
Thrift store buys
Thrift stores are filled with ornaments that can be re-purposed. Buying from a thrift store ensures that what you buy is usually cheap but you also don’t have to go through the hassle of making it from scratch. Old candle stands, vintage bowls add elegance, style and easy access to your jewellery. You can always add some our own flair to personalize its look with some painting or additional hooks to hold the jewellery.
Organizing jewellery is not only important for your peace of mind but also helps them last longer. Chains easily break when tangled up and earring hooks can get bent. Certain surfaces may get scratched from the jewellery too. Therefore, use the above hacks to eliminate all the unnecessary jewellery issues you face.
