I’ve amassed a lot of jewelry over the years, but despite my impressive collection, I always seem to wear the seem ten or so pieces over and over again. Not anymore! My new display keeps once-forgotten rings and necklaces right out in the open so they can get the attention they deserve.
I found this antique letterpress tray at a local flea market. After a through cleaning by a good friend (thanks, BG) I had 196 cubbies to keep all of my jewelry neatly organized. I try to keep silver pieces in one side and gold on the other, but even if it all gets a bit jumbled, it’s easier than sorting through a traditional jewelry box.
Though the tray would work just as well resting on a dresser, mine is secured onto an iron base I picked up at a salvage yard. I have no idea what its original intention was, but I’m quite happy with how we’re using it.
SWWU Tip 2: It’s best to keep only everyday jewelry organized out in the open like this. I still keep my special pieces locked up in a safe place.
