About 18 years ago I was looking for my July 4th earrings and couldn’t find one of them. The next day I got up and laid my earrings out on the bed and finally discovered the earring I couldn’t find was behind a broach.
It occurred to me I could create a jewelry hanger that would hold all of my earrings and went off to the fabric store to see what I could use to create the hanger.
I found drapery blackout and 10 point plastic that seemed perfect. Then I found lace and 1/2″ ribbon. The hanger was 18″ wide and 24″ long and I created 2″ pockets and ended up with 90 pockets which seemed like it would be more than enough.
I found a great metal curtain rod and hung it from the wall. Of course the earrings are sorted by color, and the lapel pins are all in a couple of rows and the holiday pins in a row.
It sure makes it easier to find the earrings I want to use and it’s great to know where each of the earrings are when I want them!
