How to Organize Your Jewelry

How to Organize Your Jewelry

By Jill Burke
Building a jewelry collection is a beautiful thing, and like any collection, your jewelry and earrings deserve organization!
Organizing your jewelry has a lot of benefits: you can more quickly and easily access your accessories and you will be aware of everything you have at your disposal. Without organization, you might even forget about a pair of earrings that got lost somewhere in your jewelry box. Plus, jewelry is pretty! Why not put it on display?
Here are our picks for the best ways to organize your earrings and jewelry.

DIY Jewelry Organizers & DIY Earrings Organizers

Let's start with a couple of DIY projects that you can probably do with things you have at home right now. These are simple and cheap ideas that are also attractive looking.

All you need for this earring organizer is a thin piece of wood, a drill with a small drill bit, and a piece of twine or string to hang it with. Use a ruler to keep your holes evenly spaced. It's so simple and cute! Works as a stud earrings holder, dangly earring holder, or a hoop earrings holder. Great for a minimalist aesthetic.

2. DIY Driftwood Jewelry Organizer

Whether you are lucky enough to live near a beach or simply want to keep a piece of the ocean nearby, driftwood gives DIY earrings organizing a boho chic twist. All you need for this project is a driftwood branch and something to hang it on the wall with. Necklaces and bracelets can be organized by simply looping them around the branch. To make space for earrings, drill hooks into the driftwood.

3. DIY Earring Organizer with Popsicle Sticks and Paper Clips

It doesn't get much easier than this. Hot glue some paperclips in row onto a popsicle stick, seal them with another popsicle stick hot glued on top, tie a string around both ends, and decorate with a piece of fabric or paint. This is perfect if you're low on wall space or simply want a tiny apparatus for organizing earrings.

Store-bought Jewelry Organizers

Maybe you're not into crafting, that's cool too! There are a wide variety of options for store-bought jewelry organizers to suit your specific needs. Here are some of our favorites.

When closed, this jewelry cabinet looks just like a wall mounted mirror. You can never have too many mirrors, they make any space seem bigger and brighter. It also comes with a little lock and key for added security! Added cool points because it's basically a secret compartment.
