I use to be an “accessory” type of person. I had matching earrings, necklaces, bracelets mostly bought from Accessorize or from the Philippines. Eventually, I started making my own jewellery until eventually I had SO MUCH, I had to give them away. I still had a lot left and I wanted a place to display them so that I knew what I had. I am also the “out of sight, out of mind” kind of person, so if I don’t see a piece of jewellery, I eventually forget about it.
Most earring holders that I have seen can hold around 15-20 sets. I own more than that and I wanted them all in one place. Most of the DIY earring organizer I see online require a frame and some sort of metal mesh that I would need to cut. I found an easier version by repurposing a metal shelf insert from Ikea.
Their old shelf inserts use to be just plain but I think the newer version looks a lot prettier with the pattern on it.
I removed the leg on one side and kept the other so that it can stand just like a frame. The square one costs around 19 dhs and the rectangular smaller one is AED 15.
To add more necklace holders, you can use one of those hooks from Ikea which is AED 5 for 6 pcs.
Its a cheap alternative and no fingers will be in danger!
