Spotlight On: Jewelry Organization and Display

6 Aug

Okay so it’s that time of year again when people are moving out, moving in, and moving back to school. For those lucky peeps who get to go back to the University of Georgia — the #1 party school in the nation, may I add — I am supremely jealous. But going back to school can be a fiasco between moving into new digs, participating in Rush, or just getting ready for the school year in general. Even I am about to make a big move to Houston in 2 pieces — first, all of my clothes, etc. Later when it’s time to move into my apartment, I’ll come back for all of my furniture. Lovely, isn’t it?

Anyhoo, the point of this ramble is that when you’re moving around, you tend to want to get organized FAST! No one likes to have their room in disarray for long. People are always looking for little ways to compartmentalize, store and display their goodies. Especially jewelry.

There are lots of ways to organize and show off your jewelry at the same time. But you have probably seen so many different ways that you can’t even remember. Have no fear, Funky Bear is here! I’m going to show you a bunch of great things you can buy and make to organize your life via your jewelry in a neat, unique and FUNKY way.

DO IT YOURSELF

First of all, I know all my loyal little Funky Bears read one of my first posts about making your own Earring Frames. I can’t stress enough how easy and effective this DIY project is! Read the post and go try it yourself, it will allow you to show off all your pretty dangly earrings and add some FUNK to your room in general depending on the frame you decide on.

Then in my most recent post, I took you through Ariel’s room and showed you her corkboard jewelry holder. This is also an easy one. Just buy a piece of cork, cut it to your liking, add push pins (they can be very decorative) and hang jewelery. Voile!

So to sum it all up, here are some tips when figuring out how you want to organize and display your jewelry:

1) Figure out if you like to have your jewelry on display or covered up, neat and tidy. Then you know if you want to have it out in the open or in a gorgeous jewelry box like the one from Urban Outfitters above.

2) Find your style. Whether you are an au natural tree-loving woman or are feminine and vintage, there is a jewelry display option for you.

3) Don’t rule out big chain stores! You can find cute options at Target, Bed Bath & Beyond, The Container Store, and Marshall’s.

Send me pictures of you display your jewelry! I’ll give an update when I get enough pics!
