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?
