ORGANIZING & DISPLAYING JEWELRY

Candace Olson is one of my favorite designers (see my TV Inspirations post here), & she often says that “accessories are the jewelry of the room.”  Well today I’m going to share my literal jewelry area & how I’ve organized & used it as a budget-friendly artistic feature in the bedroom.  Disclaimer: I’m sort of a hoarder in this department, but I have the same philosophy as decorating – if it’s not a great deal, it doesn’t go in my cart (so it’s mostly costume jewelry).  A lot of it is also gifted b/c my friends & family know I like to wear unique pieces!

1 – Create different heights

I always have a set of candle risers on hand for decorative display purposes.  Height provides interest to the eye as well as function to fit more into a cluttered space.

2 – Use decorative containers

No need to spend money on special expensive organizers.  Shop your house or thrift stores for saucers, candle holders & misc. bowls/jars!

3 – Display necklaces like art

Some people put their jewelry on the inside door of a closet or all in boxes.  If that works for you, great!  But I see an opportunity for “free” art on the wall.  The one organizer I did buy is the necklace holder for under $20 on Amazon.  I opted for a simple, yet functional one that let the pieces be the focal point.

4 – Categorize by usage

Jewelry that isn’t often worn or pricey items you don’t want out in the open gets put in lidded jars or a box.  Think about function when categorizing – what gets used the most should be easily accessible & visible.

I love having an organized jewelry area b/c 1) it looks pretty, 2) helps me get ready quicker in the morning, & 3) inspires me to try new outfit/accessory combinations!  How do you display your jewelry?  If you need more inspiration check out these ideas on Pinterest.
