Does your jewelry get inexplicably tangled? Well you’re not alone. I can’t even guess how much time I’ve wasted sat at my dresser trying to untangle jewelry before I head out. You’re dressed up and ready to go, but you find your favourite necklace in a web of metal - how is this possible when it’s just been sat in your jewelry box!? And don’t get me started on travelling. The last thing you want to do on holiday is get frustrated and flustered trying to detangle your jewelry.
Lucky for you, I’ve found the top storage solutions that will keep your jewelry nice and tangle-free forevermore. From travel-savvy clutches to DIY tips, say goodbye to tangled jewelry and hello to a stress-free approach to accessorization.
Use old business cards
Remember that time you optimistically ordered 1000 business cards that are now sat in a cupboard? Well you can finally put them to good use! Recycle your business cards to store your loose earrings and necklaces and say bid your tangled tantrums farewell. With earrings you can pierce two holes in the card and store multiple studs safely in your purse or jewelry box. You won’t be losing any earrings with this trusty trick. If you cut two splits down the top of the card, you can secure and wrap your necklaces around the card keeping them safe and detangled when travelling.
Recycle a ribbon
Check out this nifty and stylish way of storing earrings. Hang or pierce your earrings through the ribbon and keep your earrings neatly paired up. You can get creative and hang a ribbon above your dresser for a cheap and chic storage method for your jewelry box.
Hang your necklaces up
This DIY driftwood hanger is a creative and aesthetically striking way of keeping your necklaces tangle-free. Fasten some nails or pins to a piece of wood (even a hangover would do!) for a storage solution that is chic and stylish.
Use paper straws
Want to save the planet whilst solving all your tangled jewelry problems? Use paper or recycled plastic straws to prevent your jewelry from getting tangled when you pack for your holiday. Simply thread your layered pendants or chain bracelets through the straw and voila! You will reach your destination with neat, tangle-free necklaces ready for you to hit the town!
Invest in a travel clutch
If you’re a bit of a jet-setter and don’t have time to fiddle around with DIY solutions, invest in a jewelry travel clutch bag. These accessories have all the compartments you need to keep all your jewelry pieces separate and safe.
Get a jewelry box with multiple compartments
The simplest solution to preventing your jewelry from getting tangled is to invest in a jewelry box that has different compartments and dividers. Organise your jewelry into categories and keep each category in a separate place. You can buy jewelry boxes with little pigeon hole compartments. Put a separate piece of jewelry in each segment and you’ll be the queen of organisation (and tangle-free jewelry!)
