How I store my jewelry has been a point of contention since we’ve been married. And I just keep getting more shiny, pretty things to store (or display). What’s a girl to do?
Adam had a great solution for my jewelry dilemma. For our third anniversary, he gave me a beautiful, leather jewelry box (we give traditional gifts and the theme for the third year is leather. I told you he was good!):
And I love it. Really I do! It sits on our dresser, and holds lots of pretty things. But, despite its many drawers and compartments, it’s not ideal for storing earrings.
My solution is two-fold. The first is an ice-cube tray (perfect for studs!) This is also Adam’s least favorite solution. Admittedly, it used to live on the bathroom counter, and has since been demoted to a drawer. It just works so well. And one of these days I’ll find a vintage metal tray, but for now the blue plastic one works just fine, thank you very much.
My second solution is this pretty little milk-glass bowl that I found at a craft show. I love how I can hang earrings around the edge and then put bracelets or rings in the bowl.
I still have this tray of random bracelets and chains sitting on the dresser. My goal is to find some pretty knobs to put on the wall and display/store them that way.
How do you store your jewelry? I’m always looking for ideas! I’ll share my favorite jewelry storage solutions from around web tomorrow.
Sorry for the dark photos! I couldn’t bare to use the flash.
