Happy post V-Day everyone, im sure some of you are enjoying the nice valentines days jewelry additions. If your like me, between all the special holidays, birthdays and surprises, my jewelry box begins to become inundated. Luckily,  due to this weeks jewelry tip we can mitigate or at least minimize this problem. Below are some simple and easy to create jewelry organizing or storage displays. These displays may be undertaken as a very simple weekend project.
Natural Jewelry Tree
Use branches to create an organic display, perfect for hanging necklaces and earrings.

  • Step 1: Look for real or faux tree branches with plenty of sturdy offshoots usefull for hanging. Cut each branch down to your desired size, and arrange inside a glass or vase.
  • Step 2: Paint the branches for an elegant new look of your choosing, or leave the branches natural.
  • Step 3: Arrange decorative stones around the branches to keep them in place. Hang earrings, necklaces and bracelets from the branches.

Jewelry Drawer:
Convert a dresser drawer into a dedicated jewelry space using felt and a repurposed collection of decorative dishware.

  • Step 1: Measure the side of drawer to get the accurate height, so you know how tall the small bowls, dishes and teacups you will assemble can be. Look for an eclectic variety of colors and patterns.
  • Step 2: To keep dishes from sliding around, use good quality 100% wool felt to line the drawer (wool felt is more durable and resists dirt and staining). Measure the interior of the drawer and then cut and apply felt to hardboard or thick poster board using spray adhesive.
  • Step 3: Place the felt liner in the drawer and your cups and dishes on top of the lining for plenty of places to drape and hold your jewelry.
