I’ve shown you all kinds of crystal storage setups & different things over the years. But never my crystal jewelry storage…yet!
I’ve shown you how I store my tumble stones.
I’ve shown you how I used to store my more high-end Crystal pieces in my collection (it used to be in my dining room china cabinet, which I no longer own.) With my recent move I got a curio cabinet dedicated solely to my more “higher-end-collectors-pieces” and I did a Facebook live stream showing that, but I’ll do an actual dedicated video of that once I get it organized the way I want it to be. Coming Soon! …or maybe not too soon….we’ll see. 😉
B/c you’ve asked, today, I’d like to show you a new way that I’ve been using for my crystal jewelry storage (aka my sacred stash of Sparkly Bling.)
I used to have all my jewelry setup in my dressing area & although it was a larger area it wasn’t all that well organized…AT ALL.
I was often dealing with a tangly mess of necklaces & digging for things that I could never find!
But since I’ve moved I needed to find a whole new setup because I just didn’t have the room in this new space to have it the way I used to. And I knew I needed to find a better way. Now that we’ve downsized into a smaller home, I’ve had to get creative with a new storage system for my stash.
Not that I have a whole ton of jewelry, it’s not like that; I think I have a moderate amount.
And I recently lost & found it ALL (Some of you know about that situation…I discussed it all in my Glitter Updates.) If you’re not signed up, you can get on the list here).
Now…I’ve got this over the door hanging mirror thingie I found at Ross. I also found it for ya on Amazon here & it comes in many different “wood” colors to match your decor. Oh…apparently, it’s called an ARMOIRE.
I love this piece b/c it’s working in my new smaller space efficiently & beautifully by hanging on the back of my door.
I’ve got my Seeds of Light earrings from Dream Seeds stored beautifully. I like keeping the little cards that go with them because it has their correspondences & it tells what crystals are in the earrings…in case I forget.
There’s also a handy mirror to see how your earrings look after you put them in…or to help you find that darned little earring hole!
Now, I don’t keep precious jewelry in this jewelry storage case. Valuable stuff should be stored more safely. Less easy to get at.
I was excited to show you this b/c I just think it’s a genius way to make efficient use of space & have my crystal jewelry stored with easy access & no need to go digging for things or untangling necklaces, etc. while I get dressed.
Tips for Organizing Your Crystal & Gemstone Jewelry
One of the biggest organizing tips that we often hear is to:
Have your stuff organized in way that allows you to quickly & easily find what you need.
I think I’ve achieved that.
While organizing my crystal jewelry in this new way I realized there are a few ways to split up your collection (& this goes for anything really!):
- By type (all rings together, all bracelets together, all earrings together, you get the picture)
- By length or size (all the longer necklaces on 1 side, shorter on the other)
- By product line (all my Dream Seeds earrings hang together)
- By color (I really like this for my rings & bracelets so I can choose items to wear based on the kind of light frequencies I need that day or simply by what matches my outfit!)
BTW, if you want more…I have some general crystal collection organizing tips here.
Do you love it? Do you have a system like this for your sparkly stash? Maybe something BETTER? Keep in my mind that my method may not work for you or your space or your personal routines & no 1 method will work for us all. I just wanted to share what I do so you can maybe get some inspiration from it & then you can do your own thing.
Maybe you can think up a whole new way to organize. Try some stuff out & please let us know what you discover in the comments below!
