Organizing Jewelery: Part I

I'm in the middle of a huge jewelery organization project right now.  I will share pictures and tips when I'm done that I think are helpful.  By the way, this is the photograph that made me realize I needed to get it together...



Mine was organized back in San Francisco. BUT...if you can believe it, I have yet to unpack most of it since my move to Boston {which was over a year ago}. 

I noticed when I was cleaning out the goods that I had several older pieces that I was starting to forget the memories behind, which worried me. And because of this, I started to take pictures of my most treasured pieces that were previously owned by family members.  This way I could start an electronic file with all the details behind the different pieces.


I think if you have multiple pieces, it's a wonderful way to keep family heirlooms in your memories forever...


These stands were made by my mom, I just got them in the mail this week.  Love what she did...{if you're reading, Thanks Mom!} I'm not sure what I'm going to use them for yet, but I finally got a few pics of them!  I hope the above tip is helpful.  It really didn't take that much time to do the cataloging.  More updates to come soon!  And in the meantime, you can check out Tiffany's  wonderful tips too!

  2. What a great idea to photograph special pieces of jewelry, it looks like you have some really delightful pieces. I would love to have my walk-in closet designed with drawers for everything, including a couple for jewelry!

    Get all of yours unpacked and start enjoying them!

  4. Beautiful pieces. I can't wait to see your tips because I am certainly in need of some ideas. I do love it when people use bowls and other every day items for jewelry storage.

  9. I LOVE the idea of the electronic file for your jewelry. I recently bought a pretty secretary to use for storing/displaying jewelry. But what good is it if I can't remember where I got my pieces and the story behind it. Great inspiration! Marija
