Even for a woman like me with not too many (I stubbornly insist) pieces of jewelry, there comes a time when some organization is simply important. For one, I cannot for the life of me remember the pieces I have and therefore land up wearing the same-old, same-old pieces of jewelry over and over again. Finally this summer was the year when I got to sorting out all of my dangling pieces that have hooks.
I converted an old tea box with a plexi glass door into a jewelry organizer. At first I simply used this as is, with the cardboard partitions that were used to separate the individual tea sachets to separators for jewelry. But that really did not keep the ear rings in their intended place. Unfortunately, I have no pics of that mess.
Remember the other trivet that was turned into a doorway key organizer? (Click here if you don't). I had another one saved up inside and it was in worse (or better) shape, because all of the crisscrossing pieces of wood had come un-done. I simply hot glued 4 of them in a staggered fashion like below and screwed on the hooks. Then I hung up the ear rings and rings. Done. Just be warned that screwing the hooks onto the wood could give you blisters!

Staggering the pieces of wood gave me the ability to hand longer pieces on the end and shorter ones in the middle!
I plan on hanging it vertically on the wall. So easy to just take one look and know what you have. I do have to make a few more for the chains and necklaces and also the ones that have no hooks to hang them by!
