Today’s costume jewelry is bold and chunky. The jewelry boxes of yesterday just don’t cut it anymore. We believe today’s chicz deserve better. Here are our favorite tips and tricks to store a lot of sparkle.
Frame your earrings
We took an old frame, painted it and stained it, and secured a piece of screen from a local hardware store to the back. Ta-da! The perfect place to secure a
giant collection of hook-backed earrings.
Velvet lined boxes are stackable, versatile
Convert your top dresser drawer into a little bit of heaven. Fill a shallow drawer with stackable velvet or felt-lined boxes. We fit 10 boxes filled with jewels into one shallow drawer. Opening this drawer helps you feel like a princess every day.
Every woman knows that at the end of a long day, you’re in a hurry to slip off that bracelet, unhook that necklace and remove your rings. But where do you drop them? Our choice is a pretty ruffled-edge Fenton bowl. It may have been for serving treats once, but now it’s for serving up our daily dose of sparkle.
