Creating a Practical and Beautiful Jewelry Display

The intersection of jewelry and decorating— is there anything remotely as lovely?! As someone with a not so secret obsession with necklaces (and multi-strand, tangle-prone ones at that) I'm absolutely smitten with the idea of displaying jewels as part of one's decor rather than tucking them away in a drawer to be forgotten. Wearable art!

&bull: 1-2. Lauren of Pure Style Home has an amazing talent for turning simple, everyday objects into smile-inducing focal points. In her bedroom she used large nails loosely arranged to display her beautiful necklace collection. I love the dreamy contrast between the soft white walls and the bright interesting necklaces. Be sure to check out her full, night and day bedroom transformation here.

• 3., 4. Christiana Coop owner of Ferm Living and Hygee & West has special jewelry knobs designed specifically with this purpose in mind, which are available through Hygee & West for $8 a piece.

• 5. A hanger is another solution for those hesitant to out a lot of nail holes in their walls. The one pictured above, from Country Living, is actually not a hanger, but an old rake! However, a tie rack hanger would work just as well, as would a multi-tiered pant hanger. I use one on the back of my closet door.

What other creative solutions have you used to display and organize your jewelry?
