Jewellery Storage

I have been pootling around on Pinterest again, this time I have been looking for ideas for storing my necklaces and I when I found this I was inspired.
We have tongue and groove on the walls in our bedroom and so the little ledge running around the top was just ideal for making this little project come to life. I bought some upholstery pins from Ebay and knocked them in at one inch intervals.


I now have all my necklaces hanging across the width of the chimney breast, in colour order as I'm a bit manic about that kind of thing, plus there are a few empty pins at the end so room for plenty more.


As well as trying to store my necklaces in a better way I also did a search on options for bracelet and bangle storage, which led me to buy this bud vase in a charity shop yesterday for £1.00


and so a selection of my pink, purple and red bracelets now have a new home. I need to keep my eyes peeled now for more suitable vases for the rest of my collection.


To be honest I enjoy the searching for suitable pieces just as much as i enjoy looking at the finished and tidier result.

What a great idea - you don't have to spend hours untangling them like I do then! xxxx

I've seen the necklace idea before but that's a great idea for the bracelets and bangles - what a collection you have! I just keep mine in a drawer, I only have a few and rarely wear any.

Love the button necklaces & the bangle stack....

Jo said...

Great ideas. I'm impressed by your collection, I don't have many necklaces, and those I do have rarely get worn.

Hi Lisa - I love your collection of jewellery!! Great way to display it too! Thank you for your lovely comment on my last post - I wanted to respond right away to say that i've e-mailed Sarah at Pretty Nostalgic magazine to let her know that you haven't yet received your copy of the book - As soon as she gets back to me I will let you know. It may be that she will contact you direct, but if it doesn't arrive soon please can you let me know and i'll speak to her again. Marina xx

Hi Lisa
Thank you for your kind words today, I really appreciate them.
I love your jewellery system - mine are all tangled in a drawer, so consequently I wear the same one or two all the time!
Thank you again, xx
