I've tried to become creative when it comes to storing my jewelry. I have no room to hang necklaces from pegs or hooks in my "closet" and I'm not fond of "jewelry armoires". And then in a catalogue, I saw this idea -- the purpose was not storage but rather a way to showcase the jewelry for sale. But I THOUGHT it was a GREAT idea and would be the perfect solution for my necklaces.
A bust bought at TJ Maxx for very little money holds all of my necklaces.
Although it looks like a tangled mess, it isn't really. And it's easy to get a necklace to wear -- you just make your selection, undo the clasp and it's ready to wear!
So then, there are the bracelets and since a bust is the perfect solution to necklaces -- what better solution for bracelets than a hand!
I yearned for a French glove mold but instead found this cast iron hand -- pedigree unknown. It's perfect for the bracelets and like the necklaces I'm more inclined to wear something I can see.
The left side of my dressing table holds the hand with the bracelets.
The right side holds the "Lady of the Necklaces".
It's a perfect way to store necklaces and bracelets. But I don't think I'll look for a big ear to hold my earrings! And I'm not overly fond, either, of those little trees with holes in them for earrings. No, they're in a drawer. The drawer holding two plastic ice cube trays. Each cube is perfect for a pair of earrings and they're easy to see.
