Admit it. Sometimes our jewelry boxes or drawers are messy. It's not only a huge time waster trying to find the piece you want to wear for the day, the jumbled up jewelry could get damaged as you rummage and pull away.
So that's why I thought Savannah and Casey's DIY tutorial for a recycled cardboard box and roll bangle organizer using paper towel tubes was clever.
Their solution was not just cost effective but innovative as the tubes can be easily removed to access the bracelets. You can decorate the box and tubes in any way you like. Shelf liners might be an option. Remember though to make sure the box you chose will fit into your drawer or shelf. Tubes can be trimmed to size.
Tube bracelet displays are also very handy for jewelry artisans who sell at craft shows. The bracelets are shown in very much the way they are worn.
You could buy these - I have a triple tiered one which looks like this. It was a bought one and quite frankly, I find black is not a good color for jewelry display.
However, Sue Runyon shared a clever idea of how to make a tube bracelet display (shown above) from a mailing tube. These tubes are quite hardy and can be cut down to any length you want. They also come with ready made end caps. The resulting tubes will look good on well presented craft tables.
I particularly like her choice of white Dupioni silk. Not only does it give the display a luxury look, the lighter color also brings out the hues of her jewelry designs. Black tends to dull a lot of jewelry I find.
If you know a wood worker, you could also make a double or triple tiered version if you could get a wooden holder made. This commercial item gives you an idea of what I mean.
