Really Neat Idea for Jewelry Storage

I wanted to show you the neat jewelry holder that D1 made. She was tired of searching for earrings that matched and necklaces that got tangled. She asked me if I had an old frame. That was easy. I have many of them. It gave her one that was thicker. She inserted a piece of screen and took thin pieces of wood to secure it to the inside of the frame. After it was ready, she added a small piece of wood underneath it and voila! Now I want one! This took her less than an hour and didn't cost a penny, since we had a bit of dollhouse wood trim and some old screen. Let me know if anyone makes one. I'd love to see it.


I hope you are all still enjoying the last few days of 2011.

  1. Hi Patrice!
    What a good idea! All my "jewels" are piled in a wood box or attached to the towel ring. I know! Not very clever!

  3. Hi Patrice,what a neat idea. Your daughter is very smart to have solved her own problem. It would take a tiny frame for my earrings as I have small cultured pearls earrings and one pair of gold earrings. All gifts from my daughters.

    Just a note to say thanks for the book. I'll will blog about it hopefully as soon as I can find the time. It came in late today. I just picked up the mail tonight at 10:00PM on my way back from the barn. Another big calf. The 4th one since Christmas and more on the way.

    Now I have to do some online banking and go to bed. Good night. JB

  6. I use a bulletin board with pushpins for my necklaces, and I find they still get tangled. I don't even have that many necklaces!

  7. I am laughing so hard at this! Deanie drew Breezy's name for sister gifts and that is EXACTLY what she made for her sister! LOL

    The difference is that she attached hooks at the bottom of the frame for necklaces instead of making a separate piece!
