Some of us can pay thousands for a custom designed jewellery organiser/organisation system. But most of us… well. Can’t. But I love seeing some of us have gotten creative with it.

Just some inspiration for organising those sparkling littlies:

Easy peasy done… take the backs from old gilt dressing table trays and thread wire through at intervals! Picture this sprayed a lovely bright yellow enamel!

The only thing is that this works best if all your earrings are the dangly sort.

I must say, this one I do like. Inspired by George Nelson‘s drawers, Angie’s hacked Ikea and come up with a really good compromise! One for the projects for me. (I’m a big fan of the George Nelson’s drawers.)

You can get fairly inexpensive birdcages from the dollar store. Vintage ones are sweeter because they’re normally unique.

If you attach one of these birdcages to a lazy susan, it will become an birdcage turntable so you can access your earrings easily.

For those of us who have room in our bedrooms for a dressmaker’s mannequin, this makes a stunning feature.

Inspired by Decor Amor‘s jewellery organising post, I started a while ago collecting pretty small dishes and nipping from my dinnerware collection some quaint pieces. Have started to use them too. (Master bedroom reveal soon.)

These French-inspired wire frames for holding photos and letters and cards. I got one on impulse (clearance!) a year ago intending to display some cards and photos. I found it bent my precious photos, disappointed, it was abandoned. After I painted and organised Hannah’s room soon after moving, I needed something for Hannah’s growing motley collection of hair pretties, brooches, necklaces and bracelets. Walah!
