25 Beautiful DIY Ways to Store Jewelry

Jewelry and organization were two words that didn’t get along with me very well. I really tried to be better about it, but it was always too easy to set earrings on the counter, a bracelet on the craft table and toss a necklace in my purse. Before I knew it I had lost most of my favorite pieces because I had put them in a perfect place where I won’t forget it. Then I discovered DIY jewelry storage and I was hooked.
