Detangling a mess

I have a huge collection of beaded necklaces. LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE them! I adore the colors, the chunkiness, everything about them.... but there's a problem. How do you store beaded necklaces when you have 50+?
A jewelry box is not a feasible solution because you end up with a tangled heap of beads. I had resorted to hanging them on a hanger in the closet, which also didn't work well because everything still became tangled. After a trip to the local Dollar Tree, I had my solution . . . 

The hook sets are surprisingly sturdy and came with the hardware to attach them to the wall. The strips of wood were leftover from recent projects. I trimmed the wood down to the size I needed and attached the hook sets, then convinced the hubby to use his brilliant stud-finding skills to help me mount them to the wall. 

Add the necklaces and my new necklace storage area is complete!! I can see exactly what I have and nothing is tangled. The entire display costed only $3 and looks great on the wall. Perfection! 


  1. I can't wait to do that! I will prob hang mine in my clothes closet. LOVE it!!

  2. Oh this looks so great and oh how organized they look. I am new to your blog. Glad that I found it!
