Stephanie's use of antlers as jewelry hangers keeps things organized and also elevates the pieces to art status. Their beauty can be enjoyed even when Stephanie isn't wearing them.

Repurpose an ordinary bulletin board into a jewelry holder. A beautiful frame transforms the board into wall art, putting favorite pieces on display without taking up any space on your dressing table.

The framed-art approach to jewelry storage and organization also works with earrings and brooches. Punch them into a soft fabric-covered pinboard to create a beautiful moment atop your bathroom vanity.

Pretty plates are also great jewelry catchalls. Use several so each piece of bling has plenty of room and doesn't get tangled with other pieces. Stow the bejeweled plates in a dressing room drawer or leave them out on display.

Softly lined drawer inserts are a great way to keep jewelry organized. Locks on the slim drawers add piece of mind when it comes to special pieces.
