Does your earring collection look like this?! Sometimes, after a while of looking at this pile or trying to root through it to find a pair of studs, I hear myself saying, “enough already!” This pile usually accumulates after traveling where I pick out 10 more pairs of earrings than I actually need – “just in case I change my mind” and dump them out on Monday morning looking for something that was in my travel roll.
Note: I love jewelry! But I also love inexpensive jewelry that I can wear daily and not worry about it getting lost, broken, tarnished, etc. I do have some nicer pieces that live in my jewelry box but for the most part I want to see what jewelry I have and wear it on a daily basis. I should point out that I don’t have kids, I think this could be a nightmare if you have little ones or bigger ones that like to wear your jewelry! 🙂
Now – On to my nifty organization idea with the help of my assistant Ellie!! A ribbon organizer. I know this picture isn’t the best but I made it long enough that it’s hard to take a picture of! (See below for more detailed images.) I got this idea after playing around online pp (pre-pinterest!) and saw people selling similar concepts with ribbon tied to hangers, or screens, or using ribbons to organize hair bows so I thought why not use that idea for my earrings?!
I bought a spool of pink satin ribbon that is 1″ wide. I just chose a soft color that wouldn’t compete with the jewelry and well I have a weakness for pink!
I organized all of my earrings and started placing them down the ribbon. My collection has grown since then but you get the idea! 🙂
It works quite well and I’ve been using this for a few years and couldn’t be happier! What do you use to organize your jewelry? I’d love to hear how others tackle this issue!
