I had been storing my necklaces in little boxes in a drawer. But, because they were out of sight, for the most part, they were out of mind. I didn't remember to even think about wearing them until I was in my car on the way to work or some other place, equally unable to get to them.
So, I gave some thought and did some research about towards finding a way to display them, so I could see what I had. I also wanted a way to display a lot of them, not just 3 or 4....
I found some ones online and in jewelry stores. And some very quite nice, but cost more than most of the necklaces I wanted to display.
So, I gave some thought to it and came up with this idea.
I got all my parts at the hardware store, for under $5!
I took a piece of wood molding and cut it to the length of the place I wanted to hang it. In my case, it was about 15 inches. Then, I took tiny hooks, the kind that are used to hang teacups by the handle and screwed them into the wood. I fit 15 on each piece of wood! Then, I screwed it into a bookcase.
Actually, I screwed 2 of them into my bookcase. One for my long necklaces and the other for my shorter ones.
I made a piece for each of the girls as well. Allie's is hanging in her closet and really helped organize her jewelry.
