(right? isn't that what they say?)
for a while now i've been trying to figure out how to organize my necklaces. not my allora necklaces (that's another post altogether) but my OTHER necklaces. you might be surprised to know that when i don't have roses hanging from my neck, i wear a pretty simple jewelry. (though that's usually because i have roses on my ears, in my hair, or on my wrist!)
anyhow, where was i? oh, yes...
while i was cleaning my house last week (which had been SORELY neglected in the madness that was november and early december), i decided it was time to figure something out. i thought i wanted to put a frame on the wall and pin each necklace up a la lindsey (isn't it soo pretty?!) but when i found out the wall i wanted to use was solid cement, it opted out of some serious labor (meaning tools involved) and holes in the wall.
and then, it came to me.
we've had this "tree" hanging in the corner of our room for awhile- and suddenly it looked like a perfect jewelry rack to me.
so, i started hanging
|this beauty is from local artists tom design|
|a lot of my silver comes from sweet lisa|
and i love the way it turned out:
the branch is from a dead tree at our last house and it is suspended by some hooks in the ceiling. adds a little whimsy to an otherwise REALLY boring bedroom. (we've lived here a year, and i still haven't decorated the bedroom!) and now, it's totally functional! love that.
how do YOU display/organize your necklaces?
