Several weeks ago, in preparation for the accessory swap that I hosted, I sorted my jewelry collection. By simply getting more organized, my freshly tidied necklaces got more wear in the days that followed than they had in months! I grouped my most worn necklaces by style – statement, delicate, chunky, long. I’m here to share five tips to get (and keep!) your jewelry organized. Here we go!
In order to make the most of your jewelry collection, it’s necessary to purge often. A regular evaluation of your glitzy wares will remind you of pieces that you haven’t worn in a while, and will inspire you to wear it or pass it on.
Group Like Objects
Feel as though you don’t have time to select a piece of jewelry during your morning routine? By grouping similar items together, such as rings in a bowl or necklaces on hooks, you can quickly choose an item to pair with your outfit without struggling through piles of tangled necklaces.
Keep Your Collection Visible
The biggest contributor to me wearing jewelry is having my pieces visible. I used to have all of my jewelry organized in out-of-sight containers and only wore a necklace or bracelet for special occasions. As soon as I organized my jewelry out in the open, I immediately wore them more!
Make It Fun!
It doesn’t matter if you have a sliver of counter space in your washroom, on your dresser, or an entire dressing table or walk-in closet – jewelry organization can be cute and eye-catching! Small bowls and containers from thrift stores, antique shops, and stores like Winners are my favourite for keeping my jewelry organized. Choosing colorful, artisan bowls or calm, monochromatic plates are both fun choices. Don’t feel like you need to purchase a “jewelry” stand.
A DIY option is always fun for allowing your necklaces to be tangle-free, and Pinterest has oodles of tutorials. Remember that oddly shaped bowl that you created in pottery class and can’t bare to through out? It’s the perfect bowl for rings! By creating a rack or display for your jewelry, that little bit of personal touch may help you to feel more connected to your collection and wear your pieces more often.
I hope that these five tips help you to see your jewelry and accessories in a new light. Do you have any other suggestions? I’d love to hear from you!
