My new Bracelet Display

Posted on: April 13, 2013

Part of getting together my wardrobe began with getting my jewelry in order (remember I was mourning and not ready to face the weight loss journey yet) .  I felt I was missing so much when it came to bracelets, so I decided to check Ebay and purchase a lot of vintage bracelets.

I had been storing them like this:

Well, actually three of those!   And needless to say it was not working.  I like to have things organized that I can see everything… Having owned a Consignment store in the past has influenced this even more and I want displays… I have this with my scarves,  my shoes and other jewelry….

So time to solve this issue  and here is what I came up with:

These are plates , a glass bowl and glass candlesticks from the dollar store.  I actually plan to make a second one to place colored bangles and to lay out some of the ones that have to be fastened shut… I may even get some tree limbs in a vase to hang some from as well… I have the entire top of my dresser cleared off and ready for this display and the additional one I will make once I get back to the dollar store.  My cost for this  was $6.oo  plus $4 for E6000 glue.  I may buy some trim with beads hanging down to decorate the top plate.

Dear Readers,  Do you like organization or are you constantly wishing for better ways ? Do you just not mind or think much about it?  My daughter use to tell me that I was buying organization for organization  and needed to quit. I was just trying to get her to organize her room…I hope you all enjoy your weekend and do something creative or fun!  

Gratitude:  I am grateful to have found a solution for my bracelets and look forward to finishing this.  I am grateful that I found great tools to get Connor writing for homeschooling(it was my main goal this year and since December I haven’t done well with it, but he agreed to cooperate over the summer).   I am grateful that a side effect of my kicking up the exercise is better sleep!!!  I am grateful that Nicholas registered for both the SAT and his AP exam.   I am grateful for Weekends!  

Food Journal – Saturday’s meal plan

Breakfast:   Strawberry Bannana Smoothie

Lunch:  Apple & peanut butter w/ Green Tea

Snack:  Yogurt & maybe  watermelon

Dinner;  Chik Fil A Sandwich (gotta get it Saturday cause they are closed on Sunday!!!)

This menu plan is embarrassing, (not a vegetable in sight!) but I am being truthful as I write this Friday evening… I am making  vegetable frittatas  and a squash & tomato casserole over the weekend to keep me on track  for next week.

Great idea for bracelets! I like how you are able to each bracelet. Mine are in a basket and I have to dig for them. You get some amazing deals thrifting, I am impressed.

The basket is the same feeling as my plastic bins and it was awful… The bracelets get neglected that way…Thanks for commenting… Went out for a b’day celebration last night for a friend and might have messed up my 1.6 weight loss I had going aaagh!
.. we’ll see next week..

I have habit of leaving my jewelry on the kitchen counter. I think a smaller version of your jewelry project would be a perfect solution. Thank you for sharing.

Great idea. Muuuch prettier than a plastic bin, lol. I just bought a bracelet rack from the container store for $19.99 that I highly recommend. It holds about 50 or so bracelets and looks nice on my dresser. This is the url just in case you want to check it out. http://www.containerstore.com/shop/jewelryStorage/countertopVanity?productId=10029288&N=81047

Thanks, I have a white leather one like that in either my garage or attic from my store that I plan to go find when I feel like dealing with the mess in the garage…
