Accessories like jewellery can make or break any outfit, so it is essential to have a good assortment of versatile jewellery. When your collection tends to get out of hand though storing it all can be a bit tricky.

If you put in some time and effort along with a little creativity you can have your jewellery collection organized and ready for you to wear in very little time; and have fun doing so.

Cork boards

One of the easiest ways to organize your jewellery is through the use of simple cork boards. These can be purchased at any office supply or discount store.

In order to add a little flair to the boards you may want to cover them in decorative fabric. This can be easily achieved by using a staple gun to staple the fabric to the back of the board. You will want to be careful to attach the fabric tightly so it leaves no slack.

Now comes the fun part. You can hook necklaces, bracelets and earrings to the board. For necklaces and bracelets simply screw in small hooks and the pieces will now dangle. For earrings you can just place the hooks through the fabric and they will easily stay in place.

These jewellery boards look beautiful hung on a wall in your bedroom. You can even match the fabric to your decor. This is one simple and easy way to organize part of your jewellery collection.

Ice cube trays

Ice cube trays are great for making ice but now they have a dual purpose. You can easily store all of your rings in the tray by placing one in each slot. This makes it a snap to find a ring when you are in a hurry. Another use for the trays are storing small earrings, such as studs.

You can place them in the slots just like you did the rings and once again it makes retrieving them simple and easy. These trays can then be placed in a pre-existing jewellery box or in a dresser drawer.

Mug trees

If you have a mug tree or you can find one at a second hand shop you can easily use it to store your bracelets. Hanging several of them on each hook can free up a lot of space in your drawers or jewellery box.
