Gab, my jewelry box is not big enough for my bigger pieces… do you have any any unique suggestions for how to store jewelry? – Krista
I have struggled with the same thing in the past and finally came up with a system. I treat my jewelry (and sometimes my bags and shoes) as decoration and display them around my room. I found different ways to keep my pieces neat but also allow me to see everything. Here are some ideas:
Hang your necklaces on interesting hooks. I bought two of these door knob hooks from Urban Outfitters. Anthropologie is my all time favorite place for home shopping. You can find all types of cute things like this squirrel hook and inside out bowl.
I use unique dishes and plates to store my rings, bracelets and small necklaces. I like to line them up on my window sill or stage them around the room. I love these Warhol themed dishes my friend Tina got me from CB2. Trays or plates also can come in handy. Loving this decorative tray from Target (which is where I found my alphabet plate on the top right picture).
If you don’t have space in your bedroom (maybe you share a room with someone who doesn’t want to be reminded of how many necklaces you own!) try using a strip of hooks from The Container Store in your bathroom or closet.
So what’s your system? (Shoving your jewelry in a drawer is not the right answer!)
