One of my favorite things to add to any outfit is... jewelry!  I do not really own any diamond jewels to "frost" myself with (remember this theme from How To Lose A Guy in 10 days?), but adding necklaces, earrings, bracelets, or any combination thereof makes me feel totally put together.  The perfect accessories make a great outfit so much better!  Many of my earrings have stayed with me since high school years, and a large quantity of my jewelry cache was acquired when I worked at Banana Republic.  Needless to say, I love to keep everything organized, and my accessories are no exception.  Craft stores and the organization aisles at Target have been entirely useful for many things in my life, but as you will see in today's post, items from these stores have saved me from fumbling for for a specific piece of jewelry right when I want to find it.  Know that these containers and trays do not always look so well organized as they do in these photos (I had a little OCD organization session the other night), but in general I do like to keep like items organized by color for simple access.  Hope these pictures might help to give you some ideas for storing your jewels!

Tell me, do you have any hints for jewelry storage?

 < Earrings and rings are arranged by color in a crafter's box >

 < Finding a specific set of earrings to go with an outfit is so easy because of this storage method! >

 < Another craft box holds stretchy bracelets and hair accessories  >

< A shallow tray with dividers serves as a catch-all for watches, bangles, and other bracelets > 

 < Sunnies fit perfectly in this silver tray and are very easy to grab on my way out the door >

 < This holder is only about a foot tall, but has so many hooks on it that is serves as the best necklace storage system ever! >


  1. Good suggestions for jewelry storage.

    I have a tie bag with inside pockets for jewelry when I travel. I used the center of the bag for bracelets I couldn't fit in anywhere else. Setting next to my bag, as I was packing up to leave, were the round, paper lids for the drinking glasses we had used. Guess what? The paper lids fit perfectly in the center space of my jewelry bag AND held bracelet(s), necklace and earring set AND stacked which kept everything organized and untangled. I'm still using them!

  2. Great look into the organization of a Queen!!

    Wonderful girl you are and thanks for sharing your organized world. Love, Aunt Wanda with Gram.
