This past weekend I tackled a major area of excess in my home – my jewelry. After first doing an inventory of everything I had – aye aye aye – I ruthlessly purged a lot and put a load in a box to donate. I had far too many bangles I never wore anymore, oversized necklaces that just aren't my style right now, and pieces with small broken parts that I’d resolved to get fixed -but never had - for the past year.
After paring it all down, I evaluated what I had left to determine what sort of organization made sense. I found loads of simple acrylic boxes, pretty trays, lovely mirrored drawers at various places that were perfect for the way I wanted to store some of my most treasured baubles. I carefully put all my favorite pieces into a space they belong in, and love the way it turned out.
