Ten Creative & Easy Ways to Display Your Jewelry
While jewelry boxes are wonderful, they rarely are large enough to really keep everything in it’s own place, untangled, and visible. Most of us don’t think to have our jewelry out on display or even creatively displayed… but with these ideas, you can let your creativity, and jewelry, shine! Organizing your accessories can also allow you to rediscover pieces that were once “out of sight, out of mind”.
Some baubles are just too pretty to put away at the end of the day. But with a jewelry holder and display case made from a basic shadow box, you’ll have less clutter, more chances to admire your favorite pieces, and everything within reach.
All you need to add to the inside of the box are hooks; the hardware for hanging the box is already mounted on the back.
Create a Jewelry Drawer
Designate one of your dresser drawers for just your jewels. Find interesting cups and saucers from a thrift shop to create a unique yet beautiful way to stay organized.
Be on the look out for unique displays
Places such as TJ Maxx and Marshall’s have some really reasonably priced, unique jewelry displays. The necklace shadow box case pictured above I purchased for $24.99 at TJ Maxx.
Most thrift stores have a few picture frames lying around which would could be made into the perfect jewelry display. Take the glass and backing out and replace it with screen or rows of ribbon.
Speaking of frames, here is another idea that I use to display the jewelry I design at boutiques, like Lou Lou’s on the west side of Cincinnati. My husband made these displays for me, but you just take apart a picture frame, spray paint it white, add small pieces of wood to the back and add your desired style and amount of hooks.
Use Twigs & Branches
Next time you step outside, be on the look out for some fallen branches that could be easily turned into your newest jewelry holder.
Here is a branch I found in my backyard that I turned into a necklace organizer and display. The knobs were found at Hobby Lobby for around $2 – $4 each. I applied a small amount of white spray paint to the branch before drilling holes for the knobs. Using jewelry wire, I wrapped it around the branch several times on either side, creating a way to hang my newly-created necklace holder.
Here is another spin on creating jewelry organizers using twigs. [Click here to learn how to create your own Twig Jewelry Display]
The display above is super easy to create. Trim the branches to your desired size followed by mounting them into a vase or glassware. You could even spray paint the branches to give your new jewelry display a fun new look. [Image Source + Tutorial]
