If you’re cranking out a lot of jewelry, you can already see how quickly it can pile up, get tangled and take over your entire home. So why not go ahead and use your many crafty skills to make jewelry holders and organizers?
If your crafty skills stop at jewelry making, here’s another idea: Enlist a friend who sews, knits or crochets to help you. Maybe you can even make a trade!
We did all the heavy lifting for you and rounded up some of our favorite DIY jewelry holders and organizers from right here on Craftsy. Whether you knit, sew, or crochet, there’s an organizer to help get your jewelry under control.

Crochet Bowl – Yin Yang Jewelry Dish
Can you believe that these dishes were created using a braided rope? These little dishes would look great on top of a dresser to hold rings or any other jewelry that you wear daily. As you can see from the photo, it’s also a great place to store your beautiful beads while you work!

Here’s a great jewelry holder for you crocheters. Upcycle an old frame and toss in a crocheted piece that can put all your best jewelry in the spotlight. Can’t crochet? Find a doily that fits into the frame as a substitute.

There’s a place for every type of jewelry here, including rings. I love designer Deby Coles’s suggestion: If you’re gifting jewelry, why not go ahead and include this as part of the gift, too? You can make it in a practical cotton or make it a little fancier with satin or another luxurious fabric.

I love that this tutorial even thought about those pretty brooches and where to put them. The little buttoned strip makes it easy to add and remove brooches, necklaces and anything else that you don’t want to get tangled. Plus, you can use the pattern for all kinds of things, including school supplies, knitting needles, art supplies and more.

Just need to carry enough jewelry for a day or two? This pouch is awesome for tucking your treasures but not taking up a lot of space. Tuck smaller pieces into the side pockets, while the less-likely-to-tangle pieces can be stacked in the middle.
