Organize and decorate at the same time with post earrings! I have purchased inexpensive scented pillar candles, not to burn, but to use as a "holder" and display of my post earrings. They look gorgeous in the candle. When I want a pair, I just have to look at my candle, take them off, and turn the candle around so the "space" is facing backward.
I have one in the bathroom and one in the bedroom. They sparkle and keep my jewelry at my fingertips. It began by accident, when I stuck my earrings in my bathroom candle before a shower, so they wouldn't drop in the drain. Now, I enjoy watching my candle sparkle in the light.
Just remember - DON'T LIGHT IT!

Buy a long thick candle, decorate with left over nail polish, paints etc. Press small fine nails into candle. Collect all your favourite earrings and loop them on to nails and voila! Your earrings are just where you need them. Of course this is for your loopy ones. Try a small candle for your studs, and just press them in. Throw it in the case when your traveling. Bliss, no more searching!

Good tip. I never would've thought of this. (02/13/2010)
This is a good tip for the loop earrings. But I wouldn't want to put the studs in my ears after having been stuck into a wax candle. (02/14/2010)
