Organize your Necklaces

I hate that I don't have a picture of this, but I hope to get one soon.

You can get some corkboard in small squares at walmart or office max. This corkboard is easily cuttable with a good razor.

I cut the cork board into even strips, then using Push Pins, in cordinating colors I spaced them out evenly. I used double sided tape on the back of the cork board and lined the strips vertically down the wall, leaving ample space for longer necklaces, an average space for most necklaces is 18 inches long.

I also used a similar method for my earings, I cut out a square the size I wanted to hold my earings, mine was rather small about 4 inches by 4 inches.

I used a thicker then usual push pin and punched a hole I could somewhat see in the cork board. Then I would use a permant marker to mark the hole. I would make pairs of holes across the square, each line of holes would hold about three pairs of earings. I made a picture frame like stand out of cardboard and attached it to the back with double sided tape.

This same method can be used on a more costly version, using wood and metal hooks. and for the earings a wooden frame and mesh wiring in place of the cork board.

That's a great idea! I did something similar for earrings. I used some of that 1/4 inch cardboard backed foamboard, covered it in nice fabric with some ribbon and silk flowers hot glued at the top. I stuck a bunch of those "T" pins randomly over the board so that my hook-style ear wires slipped easily over them. It keeps them all on display so I always know what I have.

Count Down Till" Christmas!
