Getting Organised | Part 2: Jewellery

Here's the second post in a series about organising. I have no idea how many parts there will be, but I do like to be organised so there may end up being a few! This time I want to talk about ways of storing jewellery as well as displaying it, much like the post about organising your wardrobe.

I wear a watch every day so like to have them out on the side as it's easier to just grab one when i'm getting ready. My favourite is the Nixon Kensington which i've had for almost four years now. I got the strap replaced recently but it's still going strong considering I wear it pretty much every day. I just had to give it a little mention because I love this watch so much and would highly recommend any Nixon watch because of their great quality. 
I got the white stand from Amazon a while ago and it's great for displaying watches and bracelets. However, you can't fit a huge amount on there so it would be worth separating them over two stands in order to add more bracelets. It's made out of a fake white leather material and is pretty bad quality to be honest as the material can rip off easily when you take something off the stand, you just have to be careful.




I like to keep a selection of rings, necklaces and bracelets displayed on a cake stand. My Dad made this for me out of old plates last Christmas. He bought a special drill and attachment to hold the plates together, pretty clever! The jewellery that I have kept in their boxes, such as Tatty Devine pieces sit on the bottom plate of the stand. 



I also like to hang necklaces that I wear often on the corners of my mirror and on pretty hooks.



For smaller necklaces I use this torso shaped stand. I just think it's a really pretty way of displaying more delicate necklaces. It means that I can keep them on my dressing table so that I know where to find them and they don't get tangled.



I recently ordered some clear acrylic drawers from Amazon to store my more statement necklaces in. I thought this would be a lovely idea as they would be visible through the drawers. However, they never arrived and the company are now saying that they won't have any more in until the end of the month so have kindly given me a refund. I'll be on the look out for some more acrylic storage and will probably order a few different pieces from Muji. I keep my everyday make up in an acrylic stand and love the look of it so it will be nice to have a few dotted around my room to store different bits and pieces in.

Recently, my jewellery collection seems to have grown so I do keep most of it in boxes. I'm looking for new ways to store my necklaces so that I can have them on display, so if you have any ideas please let me know!

How do you like to store your jewellery?

    1. I cannot recommend it enough! It's one of those styles that you will never get bored of too! I think they've stopped making the brown one that I have but they've brought out some other beautiful designs.

    1. They're so handy and look really pretty too. The link i've posted is to one with quite expensive postage because I couldn't find a cheaper one at the time, so have a browse because you should be able to find a cheaper one!

  4. Lovely organisation! I recently made a DIY jewellery holder out of a cork board and some linen I stapled on, I've been meaning to do a post as I took step by step pics but I need it to be hung on my wall so I can show the final look! xx

  10. Such a great idea. The watch stand is beautiful but plain and simple which I love! I hate keeping things locked away, especially all my watches! I'll definitely be investing.

  15. Hello lovely. New follower here. Wow that is such an amazing idea was that your dads idea or yours? I have one of those ladies with hooks coming out of her head for my bracelets but to be honest that is as fancy as it gets for me, I have a couple of jewellery boxes but that is it. Really great post and you have some lovely items. I look forward to reading more from you in the future. By the way I love your blog name - genius. Take care. Love Laura xxx A Scottish Lass ❤
