i got an idea out of a magazine a few months ago. i nailed an old kid's t shirt to the wardrobe door but left the nails sticking out slightly so that i could hand necklaces and bracelets on them. bang in as many nails as you want and all the earings can hook straight onto the t shirt material. i also threaded all my belly button bars through it too. it looked quite cook. i also had all my hair clips on mine.
but you must have it on the inside of the wardrobe cos if its in the light the costume jewellery and all that is not real silver etc will get tarnished
I hang necklaces on clothes hangers with the clothes they go with (you know, so the jumper on the hanger looks like a person wearing a necklace!). Don't get tangled then, and the right thing is always to hand for the right outfit
LOL at the mannequin - is it male or female? I'd like to think it was male; bracelet storage can be tricky.
Some very good ideas thank you all. I'd like to continue to keep jewels in bathroom. I normally select clothes from wardrobes, shower, put on make up, dress, put on jewels - so much easier if they are in the bathroom.
