Creating Vintage Jewelry Storage from Sentimental Treasures

Jewelry Organization (2)

Have you ever stumbled upon the jewelry organization or jewelry storage boards on Pinterest?! There are so many crazy, creative ways to organize your jewelry!

While I wouldn’t call my jewelry storage crazy creative, I do think it’s pretty, it’s functional and the best part is I’m using sentimental pieces that otherwise would be hidden away in a closet.

Jewelry Holders (4)

My jewelry sits on a shelf that’s just inside our master closet. I am not a jewelry fashionista, not by a long shot, so it all fits nicely on one shelf. I installed metal hooks on either side of the shelves to hold longer necklaces.
The oh-so-lovely canvas was our engagement pic. What? Don’t you keep old engagement pictures hanging next to your jewelry? 🙂

Jewelry Holders (3)This storage area is just next to the master bathroom. The cabinet below holds towels and sheets while the shelves above hold books and random items.
The sweet little wooden chair was made by my great-grandfather. One of my favorite sentimental pieces.

Jewelry Holders

I’ve had the board that holds my necklaces for years. I hung it here when we moved in 8 years ago and there it’s been there ever since. It could use new paint job but that’s not high on the priority list at the moment. It is on my sometime-in-the-future-to-do list.

The pink depression glass bowl was once my grandmother’s. I think it may be a Rose of Sharon Butter Dish missing it’s lid. If anyone has any ideas I’d love to know. Instead of butter it now holds bracelets.

The aqua tulip bowl is not vintage it just happened to be handy when I was looking for something else to hold bracelets. As you may have guessed…I like bracelets.

Sentimental Jewelry Display

This tiny little dessert dish by Blue Ridge Pottery holds a few of the bracelets I wear the most often. The “love more” cuff bracelet is by Beki at The Rusted Chain.

My earring are gathered together in this little tarnished footed tray that also once belonged to my grandmother.

She was given this tray in honor of her work at a local elastic plant.  The engraving in the center states JPS 2nd Shift Weave Room. Pure sentimental value.

If you’re like me, you can corral all your jewelry in small, sentimental pieces like these that work perfectly! It makes me happy to know I’m putting these pieces to good use.

Beyond the Screen Door Jewelry Screen

If you’re like my friend Tara, you need a Jumbo Size Jewelry Organization system.

This is the smaller of Tara’s two jewelry displays. The other one is a full size screen door! This girl loves her jewelry!

What’s your favorite method of jewelry organization and storage?

    I love this! So cute and I love that you can display your jewelry to see it everyday and it is not hidden. I seem to forget about some of the pieces I have untilI stumble upon it by accident. I have a jammed full jewelry box and things get tangled and such. I do however display a few sentimental pieces on a gorgeous bust on my dresser. But I really love the screen display and think it would be a cute addition to my shabby chic bedroom, maybe next to my closet door!
    if you would like a peek of the room, and maybe have an idea for window treatments for me I would love it!! you can view it here:

    I also get overwhelmed sometimes looking at all the ideas on Pinterest… so many oohs and ahhs and I have to try that, and that and that and that…lol! Thanks for sharing this simple and cute idea! I really enjoy your website!

    Sonya love the sentimental pieces you are using to hold your jewls. That will give you happy memories of your grandmother.


  3. ummmm, my top drawer of my dresser, all mixed up together so bad I can’t get the necklaces apart to wear. I need an intervention! I do love your sentimental pieces.

    Window treatments……..pillows……….vintage jewelry! What do you do for an encore, Sonya!

    Looking forward to the journey back to North Carolina tomorrow. Tallahassee has been extremely soggy but I have been working on a new practice start-up that is right up my alley! Enjoy your weekend!

    Best regards,

  5. Using family dishes to hold your jewelry is a great idea. I keep mine tucked away in a jewelry cabinet- not very imaginative, I know, but it keeps it organized. Kind of. 🙂

    What a clever idea! What a fun way to use all your sweet little dishes. I love it!

  7. Love the wall hook and the screen door. How perfect for your jewelry. Thanks tons for linking to Inspire Me.

    Sonya, I love these ideas. Love the little dishes with your jewelry and LOVE the screen door idea. It looks good enough to be a store display. Also, Sonya, I was looking at some older posts for wedding centerpiece ideas and came across your story about stopping the man at Sonic for fence posts. That is a priceless story. My neighbor once followed a man in a pick up truck full of scrap metal 5 miles to a scrap metal yard because she spotted the tip of an iron bed sticking out of the top. Yes, you guessed it, she asked and she got for free. She refinished it and it is beautiful. One man’s trash really is another’s treasure!
