Don't hang too many on each hook so the rack won't come down. If you need to, use a separate rack for necklaces alone and stagger the hooks. If you can't find "s" hooks use large paper clips bent into an S shape. These you can even get in other colors.

Wooden mug trees make great places to keep watches and bracelets. Just hang them where you would put mugs. Do not have one? You can find them at thrift stores or garage or yard sales. The one I am using is for four mugs, but works really great.

You can keep pierced earrings on spare buttons to sort them and keep them from getting all mixed up in the jewelry box. Just put the earrings in one of the two buttonholes, and they will not come loose. I'm actually going to buy some colorful buttons for this very reason.
I organize my earrings by color: black, brown, turquoise, gold, silver, etc. These sit on a shelf in my closet with a mirror sitting on top of the boxes to use. I keep my bulky bracelets and watches in a box with 3 big drawers. I have my necklaces hanging on the wall with white hooks that I screwed in the wall. It is a great solution.
These boxes can be used for so many things. I use them for everything. I keep one at my jewelry making area to hold all my beads. One holds all my crystals, rhinestones, etc.
I hope this helped or gave someone a good idea. It has worked great for me. And keeps my jewelry well organized.

I also put sets of jewelry bagged together (but separately) the bracelet, earrings, and necklace of a set are all bagged separately and then put in a slightly larger baggie, like the snack sized ones. So I just have to grab one baggie with all the matching jewelry in it. None of it is tangled because they are all bagged separately.

Anyway, I take the earrings that go with the necklace and attach them to the "extensions" by removing the back of the earring, pushing the earring post through the "extension", and then attaching the earring back. I then hang the necklace (with it's attached earrings) in my jewelry box. That way, they're both in the same place when I get ready to wear them.

I need help organizing my jewelry. Yes, I am an earring addict. Now I have three dresser drawers consumed by my jewelry and I need the space in my dresser; we have a really small house and space is so limited.
I can't find jewelry boxes or jewelry organizers, even the kind that hang on the wall, to hold my stuff. I also have a lot of necklaces. Any jewelry box I've ever seen has a lot of space for rings, but I hardly have any rings. They don't even have half the space I need for earrings and necklaces and bracelets.
Does anyone have any suggestions, please. I've tried tackle boxes, but maybe I haven't found the right brand yet. I'm also aware that my bracelets collection is being enlarged. Any good ideas out there? Thank you.

The top drawer in my chest of drawers is shallow and not really good for much so I lined it with foam rubber covered with black fabric, and stick the posts of my earrings in that. I do have some like hoops, etc., that just lay there, but being it isn't a hard surface they don't slide together and get mixed up. I keep a small box in the drawer with the backs for the posts in it.
I would like to organize my jewelry in a drawer of my dresser. Are there any ideas on how to do that in do-it-yourself way? I do not want to buy the jewelry box, as I like to have everything out of the way.
To keep my jewelry neat and tangle-free and also where I can see everything at a glance, I hung a bulletin board in my closet. Using the push pins for the board as hangers, I hang all my necklaces and bracelets on them. My pins will hang on their own by gently pushing the pin part into the cork at an angle. Now it's much easier to decide what beads to wear with each clothing item.
To keep my jewelry box organized, I cut plastic canvas to the dimensions of my box. I can stack several layers on top of each other, one for earrings, one for pins, etc. I have a glass bottle with a wide cork lid which has cup hooks screwed into it. It makes a lovely place to hang my necklaces and bracelets.
