DIY Jewelry Organization


I feel as if I am constantly trying to find ways to organize my jewelry. Everything gets tangled or worst, lost. I don’t have room to lay it all out like some Hollywood closets allow. I saw many of these and finally decided that with an interesting frame, some screen or chicken wire, some hooks, knobs and spray paint, I could make it work. And so can you.

First, find that interesting frame that fits where you’d like to hang it–the bigger the better. Then adhere the screen or chicken wire (depending on your preference–chicken wire has larger holes) with a staple gun. It’s the easiest way but you may be able to get a stapler to work. You can find the hooks at an office supply store and the knobs at Home Depot or if you want something fun, try Anthro.


This lived with me for many years but because of the smallness of my new apartment I just didn’t have room for it. My mom snapped it right up and loves it. Her earrings don’t require hooks and her necklaces don’t tangle. I’m a bit jealous but she’s promised to return it when I have the room.

I think when it is officially warmer (Chicago weather has been all over the place) I am going to make a smaller one for one of my walls. It’s worth it. And so very easy. Necklace, bracelets, and earrings are all in one place and showcased as they should be.


How do you organize your jewelry?

Nina grew up speaking and eating Italian in the Chicagoland area. She moved to San Francisco for two years and, knowing she was always meant to be a writer, finally decided to share some of that writing with the world through blogging. There you will find her chronicling her adventures and misadventures (and isn't there such loveliness in mistakes and learning and growing?). If you ever go shopping with her, you will often hear her say, "We could totally make that!" Now, she is back in Chicago, with a real kitchen to cook authentic Italian food and other creations and space to do-it-herself. She finds it best to do all these things–writing, cooking, crafting, reading, adventuring–while laughing which is her favorite thing to do.
