jewellery storage

A while ago I found this old broken cupboard door and have been using it to pin up photos and things. But now it's much more useful. I just put some nails in it to hang up my necklaces. (I culled about half my collection first.)

I've been searching for a storage solution for my necklaces for a little while now. They've been jammed in a drawer in individual plastic zippies for a few years, but I usually forgot about them there, so I never tended to wear much jewellery as a consequence. I'm sure I'll be wearing necklaces much more often now that they're on display. And they're much easier to choose between.

I was planning to make a jewellery tree, but I much prefer this, plus I didn't need any new materials. Yay for being creative with stuff you already own.

Speaking of jewellery, I'm a little in love with an Etsy shop called Moth House. Particularly these three pieces.

And especially particularly the bracelet. My birthday's coming up in a couple months...

This is a great idea!

Guess I could improvise with a piece of lattice?

If you're really into Moth House, you might love jewelry from dores

they have very similar, simplistic styles, those two.

flying carpet - That could be cool! Would love to see if you try it out!

boatx2 - Yes! I've been eyeing off dores since Jenny from Wiksten posted about her, but it seems that now all her stuff is sold out.

So I was really pleased when I found Moth House because I think the pieces I posted are a little more unique and more 'me'.

(I still want a dores friendship bracelet or five.)

I love the re-using idea. I often do that. Have something for ages and then find a use for it later.
Sometimes hoarding is beneficial!
:) nice work :)

What a great idea! I'm always looking for a new way to display my necklaces. I agree if you can't see your jewelry you tend to forget what you have. Perfect solution.

If you don't want to do it yourself, you can check out green shops in the Green Times Directory:
