While waiting for spring...(that's my story and I'm sticking to it) I find myself looking (ok, shopping) for items that will get me one step closer to my organizational goals. Of all my jewelry, my favorites are my pearls, but they do present a problem when storing because of their bulk. I came upon these jewelry boxes from Pottery Barn and especially love how they would blend so nicely into my creamy white bedroom.
Love the hardware on this piece - it gives it a slight rustic feel. (This looks like a sturdy little bugger)
This jewlery box is a bit more subdued and has an elegant 40's feel to the design.
A perfect piece for storing fine, feminine pieces. As beautiful as this piece is (and it is!) my pearl collection would never fit in those tiny compartments. (so sad)
This set has possibilities, but I would have to have them spanning the top of my dressser to store all of my pearl necklaces, bracelets and earrings.
I love this idea and have the perfect frame and fabric for it. Now all I have to do is find the time to put it all together. (stay tuned)
Organizationally, this case would certainly solve my problem. My bulky pearls would majestically hang from appointed hooks. However, it too appears to be a bit small for the job. I would tweek this design just a bit to increase size and maybe give it a more elegant look.
I thought this was sweet. A graceful metal branch serves as an earring "tree" (oh yes, I did)
Various mirrored trays keep things neat, but I would prefer to use some creamy china plates or bowls instead. (They hold more!)
This sweet birdie bowl is a charming example of blending storage and display.
I may have to use a combintion of these pieces to store and display my pearl collection. My problem isn't totally solved but I did enjoy "shopping" for ideas.
