Jewelry can dress up a simple outfit, or add that last touch of perfection to an ensemble—if only we could find it/untangle it/keep it clean! Tangled jewelry causes unnecessary wear-and-tear and it's frustrating because usually we are putting it on as we are trying to leave the house, meaning annoyance can run high when dealing with the disorganization. But it need not be this way. There are many creative ideas for keeping your jewelry organized; here are just a few.
