*DIY* Simple organisation - Jewelry

I have been planning this blog post for a while and Chicara from Lipgloss Kisses asked me for ear ring storage ideas so here it is, the follow up of my DIY simple organisation for cosmetics.

We all recognise the little box below. Its mainly used for avid scrap-bookers, beaders and even fishermen. I personally use it as my ear ring holder and I'm sure I'm not the only one. 
The problem with these is that you can never really find what you're looking for, your ear rings get tangled and it just doen't look attractive.

I found this really cute idea on the internet machine. You take an old frame and staple/glue mesh inside so that your ear rings can hook. I am so crazy about this idea because it's so easy!
If you have a large ear ring collection you can use a bigger frame with finer mesh. If you're looking for something smaller use a smaller frame or 'chicken wire' that has bigger spaces to hang your ear rings.
You can use stand up frames to set beside your bed or on your dressing table. You can also use frames that you place on your wall, that way it takes up less space. If you have many pairs of the same colour, you could keep them gathered on one picture frame to match the colour of your room etc.
If you're the type of lady that likes to keep your necklaces with your earings, you can use the idea below:
You stick a whole bunch of corks in a frame and use hooked screws in the cork, to hang your necklaces on. Your ear rings can just be pushed into the cork and won't fall out. Corks aren't that easy to come by (unless you drink tons of wine - No judgment here) so try using cork sheets which can be found at most craft stores.
This idea is cute for necklaces but might be a bit too bold and 'barn-like' for some people. 

I will try this idea soon and post photo's :)
