Diamonds are a girl's best friend...

Slight lie with the title, I actually see no point in diamonds. Give me something with some color to it, not just a rock that looks like a hunk of glass! Anywhoooo, for Christmas, my sister and brother-in-law made me the ultimate jewelry non-box. I wanted to be able to SEE my necklaces, especially the ones that I slaved over myself, instead of having to root through a jewelry box to find what I'm looking for. It took me forever to get it up, because I am not to be trusted with a big hammer, so today my dad put it up for me and you can start weeping with jealousy.

I looked on Etsy, and found this. I showed it to Jen and David, and they made me one that matches my room, and several of my sheet sets! It has 11 little hooks, and I managed to fit 25 necklaces and my beloved spoon ring on there. Now I can pick out my necklace to match my outfit first thing in the morning! Aren't you longing for something this cool?! Here's a close-up:


  1. Oh my! That's such a GREAT idea! Thank you so much for posting about it!

  2. I am really jealous, this is super cute. I agree, who wants their jewelry to be hidden. I'm not a big fan of diamonds either, I don't like the diamond trade.

  3. It looks great! I'm so glad you like it! I do still want to get pretty oversized silver thumbtacks... I think I've only be to C-burg once in the past month, though, so I haven't been to Michaels again.

    I may have to make one for myself!!

  4. this is great!! i just pound nails into the wall to acheive the same effect, but this is far classier. :)
