Jewelry Organizers

I have quite a bit of jewelry and my collection is not going to be getting smaller anytime soon. Therefore, I have been trying to find a better way to display my jewelry in a visually organized way.

I have tried different kinds of jewelry holders  and have always found a problem with each one:

80-Pocket Hanging Jewelry Organizer

For example, the one organizer to left  (similar to one I have) can be easily stored in your closet. It has several vinyl pockets for you to place you jewelry in. Mine came with labels on the front of each pocket for earrings, necklaces, bracelets, etc… It is also two-sided.

Believe me it worked great at first but then the more jewelry I got the more of a hassle it became. At one point, I could place each piece of jewelry in each compartment, but not anymore.

Now i am back to my jewelry getting all tangled up. I also have very wide bangles that can not fit inside the bigger pockets. My closet is full of clothes as well so it makes it hard to make space to access either side. I tried hanging it on the wall as well but I got tired of always having to pick it up turning it around. (That probably sounded lazy but when it was in the closet with less clothes i could twist it around.)

I have something similar to this for my earrings because I always manage to lose my studs. It works great for that, but not my dangling earrings. I have some that are very long a stiff and do not work well in the holder above.

I have also had jewelry cases but I do not really care for placing my jewelry in drawers and they do not accommodate really over the top jewelry.
So, now I end up with jewelry placed on whatever surface I end up taking them off at. I end running around looking all over the whole room for where I placed things (thinking I lost it because I can not recall). My boyfriend gets so mad because sometimes it ends up on his desk or when we are trying to leave and I am running around trying to find stuff. I hate being unorganized. It really stresses me out.
Here’s my solution.
I looked up a few DIY projects and there were many that could work for me but there was always something essential missing whether it was a place for stud earrings, rings, or bangles.
So I found a few I like and will be taking aspects from them that I like to create my very own organizer. Once I have all my supplies I will show the process of putting it together.
I am so excited.

A Little Relaxation Would Be Nice…

It would be nice to have a break from life every now and then, a complete day of relaxation. I am always busy with working at Jcpenney and painting. Don’t get me wrong, painting is relaxing but it is still work. I have today off from Jcp  but I usually spend off  days painting or handling business I usually can not get done because of work. So I guess I will get back to a painting on my next item for my shop and dream of relaxing. I hope everyone is enjoying today regardless if its busy or not. Make the most of it.

Dreaming of Relaxation….

Fun with Polymer Clay

One of my favorite materials to work with is polymer clay. I am working on updating the jewelry section of my shop for the new year with new polymer clay made items. I am really excited for it because I am going to keep up with “geeky” type items but also with a sort of new approach if everything works out as planned.  However, since that is not until the new year. Enjoy these items from other sellers on Etsy who share my admiration for polymer clay.
