While we are on the subject of jewellery, I thought I would give you three simple tips for storing jewellery to make it easy to choose what to wear.
Store it the traditional way in a jewellery box. These usually have separate spaces for earrings and open spaces or drawers for necklaces. The good – all in one place; the bad – necklaces can get jumbled and you have to burrow through it to find what you want.
Store it in a clear plastic jewellery hanger. I bought one from Howard’s Storage World. It has 24 pockets and hangs in my wardrobe. The good – you can see everything at a glance; the bad – the pockets are not designed for larger pieces of jewellery.
Store it in an accessory wardrobe. These are available from discount stores. They have a slim, full-length mirror on the front and drawer and hanging space inside. The good – all in one place; the bad – you need space in the bedroom, wardrobe or walk-in robe to put this extra cabinet.
