Bracelets and Earrings: from travel case to their own space

A short while ago, I reorganized my necklaces, and it has made choosing a necklace and also putting necklaces back after I wear them so much easier. My earrings and bracelets were still not organized, and I kept them in my travel jewelry case. Before I moved to Charlotte, I traveled a lot, and I always kept my jewelry in the travel cases and never took them out. My earrings were in every little compartment of this jewelry role:

My bracelets and necklaces were crammed together in this other travel jewelry case:

I love the travel cases, and they are great when I'm TRAVELING, but since I don't travel as much as I used to, it was time to make a permanent home for my earrings and bracelets. I had read the tip to use ice cube trays for your earrings, along with some other really clever ideas on this site. Another idea that I found on another blog uses a picture frame, which I really love, but I just don't have a good space to utilize this method. It is almost like your own piece of art!

My solution came about because I'm always open for a bargain….and free stuff. One day at work I saw a pile of random items marked "free." (I think it was from several people clearing out their desk and cube areas.) In this pile I came across a drawer organizer with several compartments. It had a small tray that sat on top of a larger tray, and it slid along the two "ledges" on the sides of the bottom tray. I had been thinking about how to sort my earrings, so I thought I would give it a try!

I took my earrings and bracelets out of the travel case, sorted them by color (bracelets) and by type/length (earrings), and put them into my newfound jewelry organizer. It works like a charm!!

This is a view looking down on it.

The top tray (you can see above) holds my earrings. It has six compartments, which are not too big where things slide around, but the earrings can be spread out enough for me to see them all. I have a compartment for hoops/circular earrings, one for silver danglies, one for medium-length jewel/colored danglies, one for short-medium danglies, one for studs and one compartment for crazy-long-danglies.

Below is a shot of my bracelets, which are in the larger, bottom tray. Each compartment is a different color: gold, silver, black/dark grey, brown/tan/natural and "all others."

The tray sits in my linen closet on a shelf just below eye level. This way I can open my linen closet and pick out my jewelry with ease, thanks to my necklaces, earrings and bracelets being visible and easy to access!

    It’s true that some people might need different sizes to store various types of jewelry. Organizing them so you can find (and put things away) faster is the key! As long as you have a system that works for you, it will help to make life just a little bit easier.

    An additional case is of the lady who prefers to carry admired ornaments with bright colors. The points that you ought to consider are what are her preferred colors, does she want small gems or the bigger ones in the ornaments and does she used to carry any particular type of ornaments or remains altering her style.

    I love my travel case, but it was not the place to keep my jewelry when I was NOT traveling. I got them for all of my bridesmaids at my wedding, and of course had to get one for myself. It made a great gift, and I had them all monogrammed as well. I got them through Lillian Vernon. I looked on their site and I can’t find the exact same thing, but it looks like what they have now might be better. Check out http://www.lillianvernon.com, and then look in bags, jewelry and accessories tab. It’s called the 2-in-1 Jewelry Organizer. Love it!

    I love that it’s pretty as well as useful.
    I also love that I won’t have to stuff my jewelery in a large baggie to travel.
    Wonderful!

    Thanks for your comment! I do love my travel jewelry cases, and they keep my jewelry safe when I travel. It was just time to get all of my jewelry out of there and organized. It helps me pick out what to wear so much faster in the mornings!
