I don’t wear jewelry much, but I still own a bunch. Because I don’t wear it all that often, I decided to store it in a way that would let me see it, or at least most of it. I made a board to hang my necklaces, bracelets, rings, and earrings on.
I started with a simple framed corkboard. Not liking the plain brown of the cork, I used acrylic paints to make a cloudy sky pattern of white and blue. Then I added a small piece of wire mesh to hang my earrings on, and used transparent pushpins, which are easy to rearrange, to hang the larger pieces from.
The result is something I see every day: a display of my jewelry that lets me enjoy what I have even when I’m not wearing it. And having the pieces out in the open makes it more likely that I’ll wear them. If they were all in a drawer or box, it would be easy to forget all about them.
How do you store your jewelry? Do you have storage that displays it?

I use two short IKEA Grundtal rails with S-hooks to hang my necklaces by a full length mirror. I don’t wear bracelets or rings other than my wedding ring.
That’s cool and makes sense since you make your own necklaces.
This is a great idea! I even have a broken screen I could use
Thanks! Glad you like it. I’d love to see what you come up with!
It is really nice to look at! Good idea!
Thanks! I’m glad you like it.
It is really nice jewelry. I like your post.
Thanks so much. My sister Cleo Dunsmore Buchanan is a glass artist and she made a bunch of the pieces that you see.
I like your jewelry board.
Thanks! I love getting to look at it every day.
