Project

Double Stacked

Introduction

Four divided trays, painted orange, become a layered jewelry organizer. Two trays lie flat along the drawer bottom. The remaining two, joined with wood glue, form the top shelf; it is elevated by strips of 1-inch square molding affixed to the inner sides of the drawer.

    I found one by a company called Ampersand that seems to be sold at Bed Bath & Beyond. It looks very similar to the one Martha is using. Just Google it. It looks like about $20.

    A really quick and easy way to organize your earrings , rings and pins, is to use egg carton trays. They are already a pretty green or use the fashionably clean looking white trays which help to distinguish your color choices more quickly. The trays are stackable and easily adapt to any size drawer by using an old steak knife to size the egg tray.

    Plain white blackboard chalk also works well for preventing tarnish buildup on silver objects.

    Thanks, DotK, your instructions were very helpful. I appreciate your explanation on how the trays work.

    Try Oxyclean for cleaning jewelry. You can even put gold and silver and gems all in the solution at once. An old toothbrush can remove tarnish etc. stuck into crevices.

    I, too, have had items become sticky if they were against the cedar "balls" closet refreshers. I assume the plastic (usually what got sticky) was bringing out the cedar oil.

    .

    The directions were pretty complete....they said to put two divided trays in the bottom of the drawer, glue on 1" strips (one side to other side length) about an inch above the bottom trays and put your third tray on these "rails". You can slide the 3rd tray from one side to the other to access the trays underneath. If you don't mind lifting the trays out, you could add a fourth tray.

    Now everybody could use this jewlery box that is granted, but there are no specifics on how to make it! No pictures to show the bottom rack, how do you make the inside dividers, etc etc etc. GREAT idea but not enough info. I agree with Sline, too much beer left them at a loss for words for this one.

    You may find divided trays at neatnix.com, then click and select J'ewelry Stax'. These fit nicely in drawers AND come with tarnish-free finishes. Some also may readily find them at your local Bed Beth

    To keep silver from tarnishing put in some pinto beans- they act like silica and draw moisture out of the air.

    Try the container store. They have lots of great storage items.

    As far as the sticky situation goes could be from your hands, lotions are not your jewelry's friend. The best cleaner for gold and some stones is a solution of ammonia, splash of clear dish detergent and water. Do not immerse your pearls, emeralds or porous stones in this.

    On the same vein as wood to hold jewelry, I have a cedar box and stuck some pieces of jewelry in it. Shortly after that I was taking a piece out and noticed it felt very sticky. Can anyone tell me why that happened and how to clean gold, silver and stones? I never thought to ask here...

    I'd like to know where to get the flat trays?
