Jewellery Storage Ideas

Love jewellery? I’m right there with you, my mum has always called me a magpie because I’m attracted to shiny objects, so its of no surprise to her that I love glitzy, glamourous jewellery. Its important to keep these precious pieces organized and minimizing the risk of misplacing them, below are (perhaps) some unconventional methods for storing your jewellery collection.

Picture Frames

Using a decorative, ornate picture frame as an earring display is a unique and artistic way to showcase your collection. I personally see Jewellery as a work or art so why not display them in that manner? Not to mention it creates an easy way to remember what you actually own.

Check out this fabulous DIY guide on how to transform a picture frame into a jewellery display OR if DIY isn’t really your thing there are plenty of organizer frames on etsy such as the one above that you can find here.

Cake Stands

Repurpose cake stands and pedestals to create an elegant display of your jewellery, have fun with it!

This is ideal for bracelets, rings and delicate earrings. Dedicate each tier to a specific type of accessory in order to stay extra organized as well as creating a fabulously alluring table top organizer.

Paper towel holders

Allison over at The Adventures of VAMH had a simple yet fantastic solution to organizing her bracelets. Visit your local target or Tjmaxx for a paper towel holder and repurpose it as a chic way of displaying your bracelets.

Cheap and cheerful as well as a way to keep your collection organized! Worried that you can see exactly what it is? Not to worry if you build yourself a sizable collection, soon enough you’ll have enough of them to disguise the paper towel holder.

Decorative Plates

I’m always spotting beautiful unique plates at stores like tjmaxx, ones that often times are just too beautiful to eat off of. Instead you can use it as a stylish way to display your most worn pieces.

Recently I picked up a stunning plate from tjmaxx for only $7! It now sits pretty on my vanity table holding all my beauty products that I use most often. Its a great way to keep things grouped and it also jazzes up any surface.

Soap Dishes

They range from elegant to quirky, use this to your advantage to not only spruce up your table top but also repurpose it as a jewellery holder. Its an inexpensive method to keeping your jewellery organized as well as the fact that its a great space saver!

Jewellery stands

Recently I’ve noticed that Urban Outfitters have some great storage displays that are perfect for keeping your jewellery organized, below are a few that caught my eye.

Owl Obsession

Today is my last post before I head to Germany for the holidays, I will attempt to update while there and share some of my adventures however meanwhile on to the next post:

Okay so is it just me or is there a current “Owl Obsession” trend going on lately? Seems whenever I go window shopping or browse stores online the cute little things keep popping up! Overall I think owls are beautiful creatures, they have unique proportions and are absolutely adorable especially during their infant stage! (lets face it most animals are cute, fluffy and cuddly when they are that young 😉 Take a quick look at the video below to see my point.

Check out the owl craze at Urban Outfitters that I encountered the other day:

Sherlock Holmes Style: Modernized

I’m a huge movie buff, therefore there is no surprise that I’m eagerly awaiting the latest installment of Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows by director Guy Ritchie. In honor of the upcoming release I thought it would be rather fitting to dedicate my second post to it. While browsing I found some lovely pieces that could be a great addition to anyone’s wardrobe or jewellery collection. The movie served more as a source of inspiration as opposed to a direct translation. Some of these pieces could be used in combination with one another but would most likely work best as their own center pieces to a single outfit. Let me know your thoughts!

1. Cambridge Collar Necklace –  $16.00

2. High Column Pleated Pants – $49.00
