If you are like most, storing jewellery can be a nuisance. Sometimes the costume jewellery gets mixed up with the good stuff and sometimes you just place it down and forget where you put it.
There are many creative ways that you can store jewellery in small spaces where your jewellery is safeguarded and nicely on display as well.
In the Kitchen
Anyone and everyone who has ever washed a dish can tell you that he or she has misplaced a ring or two that way. A great way to store your jewellery in a tight space in the kitchen is to set aside a special teacup for that purpose. If you have a windowsill, place the teacup on the windowsill over the sink. That way it will be ready and waiting for you to drop your trinkets inside it.
In the Bedroom
A really simple way to store necklaces if you are short on furniture is place decorative drawing pins or hooks on the wall and hang your necklaces from them. Drawing pins today come in all shapes, sizes, and colours; some are even crystal-like. If you do not have furniture that you can place a jewellery box on top of, this is a great way to keep necklaces organised and tangle free.
In the Living Room
Many individuals like to unwind after a tough day of work, kick off their shoes and take off their jewellery. Unfortunately, this is a great way to lose a pair of earrings or worse, just one earring. By having a dish or a decorative bowl exactly for that purpose on your side table, you alleviate the problem of forgetting where you put them in the first place.
In the Bathroom
Many times when you go to wash your hands and face, you take off your jewellery. This leaves the problem of possibly losing a ring or an earring down the drain. By placing a small shelf on a wall away from your sink, with a decorative dish on top, you now have a great place to store jewellery in a small space.
Inside a Desk Drawer
If you have a desk for your laptop but there is barely enough room for the mouse and the laptop, a small drawer is perfect for storing jewelry that might hamper you work speed. Place a small piece of velvet inside the desk drawer and use that as a liner for jewellery. You can also place small tea light candle votive inside the drawer for placement of rings so you can type away at the speed of light.
