I have jewelry boxes both large and small. I even have my childhood jewelry box. You can see in the photo below (in the reflection of the mirror) that I have a large dresser like jewelry cabinet as well. None of these boxes have worked for me (btw, I'm selling the jewelry cabinet, local friends). My pieces get lost in the boxes and I tend to forget about and not wear them.
My solution has been to put my jewelry out where I can see them. This is most appropriate for my costume jewelry or pieces I like to wear often. I can glance at what strikes my fancy for the day, grab, and go.
Using a broken wooden thread caddy, as seen here, I used Velcro tape to fasten a one of the rows of pegs to the top of a full length mirror. [Note: I bought a cheap thread caddy at a cheap store and it cheaply fell apart prompting this idea. I also attached magnet strips to another broken row and made a magnetic bobbin holder...a totally different project for another time.]

I have two of these tie holders hanging in my closet for my rings and necklaces. The foam covered bars help keep these items from slipping off. I also love that they don't take a lot of room.
My next home will pose several storage issues that I look forward to sharing with you. For now, these solutions will follow me to Reno.
What are your favorite storage solutions?
