Jewellery organisation...keep it simple

A couple of weeks ago, I played along with Fox In Flat's Arm Party Dare. I had so much fun wearing all of my costume jewellery that week, and rediscovering pieces that I forgot I even had! My jewels looked so pretty on my arm, but at the end of the day, I was just throwing them in a pile...completely disorganised.  They've always been this way, and often I can't find the one thing I want to wear. It drives me mental every single morning.  It's not just bracelets...there's rings, earrings and necklaces to contend with too.  What's a girl to do?

I am in the middle of reorganising our walk in wardrobe. It's a small triangular shaped room, which currently has barely enough room for our clothes. With some careful planning, I have managed to move around the clothes rails to fit in a chest of drawers.  On top will be my accessory centre. lol.  I have been searching Pinterest for jewellery storage inspiration (as you do)...and here are a few favourites...

There were so many choices! I was toying with the idea of making something beautiful to display all of my pretties, but let's face it...I don't have the time. There are plenty of ready made options available on the market, so why reinvent the wheel (so to speak). I found this velvet bracelet/watch display system on ebay for less than $20. Why would I bother making it myself?  I made the purchase, and it was delivered within a couple of days. I don't think it could have been any easier.
Here's all of my pretties on display. There was a three tiered display unit available, and I'm kicking myself now that I didn't get that one instead.  Mind I really need any more bracelets?  Stupid question...of course I do! lol. Sadly, I'm fairly sure that some are missing. Once I finish reorganising, they'll turn up.

I love how organised they are now, and I can see exactly what I've got. The roll lifts out of the holder, and the bracelets slide off...making it super easy to use.

This system works for me because it's simple, it's practical and it's compact.  When it comes to organisation, for me, the simpler the better. I know I can maintain this. I can't wait until the rest of my costume jewellery is more tangled necklaces!!

How do you organise your jewellery?
