Never get tangled again. Alicia Henderson, share top creative ideas for arranging your jewelry using whatever space you have.
If You Have a Drawer…
1. Take StockFirst, sort your jewelry collection - categorizing them into styles and types - to determine how much storage space that you would need.
2. Gather Containers
Search for items throughout your home that can be re-purposed and used as in-drawer dividers. Box tops, tea cups, egg crates are such examples. Use them to supplement the drawer dividers that you have bought.
Place similar jewels together within each container: For example, place chunky bracelets in a bowl, put studs and rings in the smallest compartments and hang chandelier earrings over the edges of a cup. It is important to limit your groupings to no more than a few pieces so that you would be able to see all your collections at a glance and to avoid overcrowding.
3. Sort by Style
4. Layering Up
For deeper drawers, use multi-level inserts: You can stash in-season items on the top and lesser-worn jewelry pieces towards the bottom.

If You Have a Vanity Dresser…
1. Quick Access
Choose a small dish or a ring cone to hold the accessories you wear everyday. Leaving them visible means you won’t have to take time to search for them—and you’ll always remember to wear them.
To make things look pretty, arrange your collection like one you’d see at a store, putting favorite pieces on sculptural objects or figurines. (Don’t overdo it, though. Too much could lead to clutter.)
2. Design a Display
3. Hang Loose
To prevent daintier, fine-chain necklaces from getting tangled or misplaced, drape each one over a separate peg on a clear carousel.
4. Put a Lid on It
A jewelry box keeps your jewelry dust-free. See our collection of jewelry boxes such as this beautiful and portable 3-tiered Jewelry Box.
If You Have a Wall…
Hanging your jewelry on the wall can be a great space saver as frequently wall are storage spaces that are under-utilized and waiting to be unleashed.
1. Use Vertical SpaceHang long or chunky pieces from hooks (on a rod, like above, or directly mounted to the wall) to keep them orderly and within reach. Bonus: It’s a sturdy solution for your heavier pieces.

2. A Clever Dual-Use Solution
