There is something mysterious and exciting about opening a jewelry box. When I was sick, my mother would lend me her painted wooden treasure chest and allow me to play gently with her silver charm bracelets. In that same box were the inexpensive engagement ring she and my father had bought from a pawnshop and the little beaded hospital bracelets worn by each of her four children.
Thanks to Etsy, my own handmade jewelry collection has been growing and I have been searching for the best ways to store and display my favorites.
A repurposed, slightly battered tool chest sitting next to a petite doll dresser would make an eclectic display that reflects my own quirky taste in jewelry.
Certain jewelry pieces seem to require their own special containers. Others are fine in ordinary boxes and pouches and can be tucked into a set of stacking boxes.
Some boxes are works of art themselves, while others are props for imaginative stories.
What is your ideal container for jewelry?
