Jewelry Week: Using Jewelry as Decoration, Part 1

I’m not sure about you, but I know that, as I started gaining jewelry (mainly costume jewelry—you know, the fun stuff), I started losing space, and I soon realized that I needed to figure something out, fast.  One big jewelry holder wasn’t going to do the trick.  So, in my magazine perusing I found an article about using drawer pulls as necklace hangers.  I tried it out only to see that it was so easy! …and, it gave my jewelry a dual role; decoration for me and my walls.

3. Screw the drawer pulls directly into the wall, spaced evenly apart.  Not so far that it looks awkward, and not too close so that you can’t pile-up the necklaces.

4. Hang your necklaces on their new hooks and, Voila!  You’re done!

Here is what mine looks like:

Here are some other brilliant ideas, if you don’t want to screw the drawer pulls straight into the wall:
