Club Creative Studio enjoys sharing creative knowledge that you can use or pass along. In today’s TNT (This-N-That) blog post, you can look no further than the jewelry box on your dresser for the answer to a better life. Well…sort of. Here is a question: How can your jewelry make your life better?
At first glance of our jewelry hidden within the standard storage box designated the “jewelry box”, you may seem frustrated at disorganization. Maybe your container is too small for your collection, maybe the dividing spaces are not adequate to separate or display the jewelry you own. Another problem with your storage may be your actual items you are holding on to. Do you have lost or broken jewelry sections, tangled chains, or out of fashion creations?
It may seem difficult to appreciate knowing that life can be made better by simply displaying your jewelry in healthier ways. You can be quite innovative in how you do this. In this respect, your jewelry has a link to making your life better. Your life can be more orderly and your possessions more valued if you have a means to care for the jewelry you own using proper storage. After all, was not this the thinking methodology of “Santa” who gifted you the pink ballerina musical box for your plastic necklace?
I really should practice what I am preaching here. I personally have a mixture of ways that I refer to as my “jewelry organization”. Some of my fine gems are stored in their original boxes and placed in a safe. Other jewelry items that I own are displayed on hooks, smaller elements are placed in a traditional jewelry box and yet other creations are organized in small, clear, stackable bins with handles that are easily ready to view when I have to travel, or relocate.
No matter if you store in a standard table top box, in free-standing legged armoires, in a closet organizer pouch, or on some type of rack, caring for your jewelry and having access to it easily is the key to experiencing storage happiness with your jewelry.
To properly store for in-home, short-term, I suggest using a hooked display rack, ladder-type or screen-hole system with holes for earrings, box or plate that is placed in a room where you have an adequate landing spot to return to again and again. Being able to quickly see and review your jewelry choices is important for the items that you wear most often. If you make a habit of returning and neatly replacing jewelry in the same spot your life will be better as you will not waste time finding what you need. Your treasures will not be lost and they will last longer from the tender loving care and respect. A great “go-to” spot will serve you well in jewelry organization.
There is a wonderful product I learned about from a home shopping show that seems to be every girl’s dream jewelry case. It was a rectangular box that opened up on one hinged side and attached to the back of any door. It was framed out and had a mirror on the front. How wonderful is that? Fun and function…I LOVE IT! This type of jewelry storage unit could be considered both temporary and permanent because of its size and depending on the location you place it. It was designed with many specific compartments. The areas had distinct places for bracelets, rings, necklaces, earrings, even scarves and belts. It had a secure hanging device that was over-the-door, so no nails were required for its installation.
So, with these few helpful tips in mind, maybe you can make your life better by making a special place for your jewelry. Happy shopping and organizing.
