When you’re choosing jewelry to go with your outfit, do you find it helpful to see a whole selection of your jewelry all at once?
Transcript of This Video:
I’d like to share a few cheap, easy ways you can store and display the jewelry you wear at home.
First of all, do you ever get those hangers when you buy clothes, that have the clippies at the ends?
If you do, it can be a handy way to not only store and display your jewelry at home:
. . . and I also like using these this way:
Say you want to decide which necklace to wear with this shirt. You can compare three necklaces all at the same time with this shirt, and see which one works best:
And here’s another way you can use hangers. I have this antique pants hanger (and sometimes I’ve also used it for hanging skirts).
I have no idea how old it is or how long it’s been in my family. I’ve had it as long as I can remember.
It has multiple bars so you can hang a number of different things on it.
This is how I’ve used it to display and store my jewelry at home:
It was originally made to hang 5 pairs of pants – and in stores you can find a variety of modern versions of this hanger.
But if you’re hanging jewelry on it, you can hang necklaces and bracelets over the clips, and you can also hang earrings on the bars.
I find it very helpful to be able to see a selection of my jewelry all at once, so it’s easier to choose the right pieces to go with what I’m wearing.
Now here’s a non-hanger way to store and display your jewelry at home.
A lot of us like to store our jewelry in a dresser drawer.
It’s really easy to open the drawer, see everything you have to choose from, and shut the drawer again.
But unfortunately, sometimes when you store your jewelry in a drawer, the bracelets roll around or get jumbled up – so here’s a way to keep them nice and neat and rounded up:
You can use a paper towel tube or gift wrap tube, and cut it to the size you need for your drawer.
Then it makes a handy way to round up all of your cuff bracelets, bangles, and even clasp bracelets.
You can even wrap some rubberized non-skid shelf liner around the tube to help everything stay in place.
Now your bracelets won’t be rolling all around the drawer every time you open and shut it.
I hope you enjoyed these cheap, easy ways to make your jewelry easier to see and find at home so you can choose the best jewelry to go with your outfit.
Thanks for stopping by to have coffee today! I’ll see you soon.
