Sara chose this week’s Martha Monday’s project. When I saw the idea on how to store earrings in the March issue of Martha Stewart Living, I knew that it would not work for me. Therefore, sadly I have not done this week’s Martha Monday’s project, but I will share my storage solutions for all of my jewellery. I confess that I have too much of it. I tend to wear large jewellery – long earrings, big bracelets and huge necklaces. I have been collecting jewellery for years, although I buy new jewellery and never antique. Friends have a saying of ‘that’s very Pru’ when they see something that they know would suit me.
Anyway, what started with a small box of jewellery amounted into a lot more and I have had to come up with ways to store it without hiding it away or it appearing to look messy. I therefore store my jewellery as follows:
Small rings and earrings in a jewellery box.
Large rings in a china pot.
Bracelets in a plastic container which is kept in one of my clothing drawers.
Large earrings on a jewellery hanger.
Necklaces on three hooks.
Mum bought me the jewellery hanger for Christmas and when I took it to my room I realised that I could answer the question I get all the time about how I store all my jewellery if I did a blog on it. So here it is. Plenty of jewellery. Almost all of it I wear frequently although I definetly I cherish some pieces more than others, like my new Antrhopolgie necklace which I received for Christmas – thanks mum and dad.
