Keeping your costume jewelry in excellent shape is easy. All it takes is a little bit of time and some effort. If you wear your pieces every day, you will need to clean it more often. To get your costume jewelry looking like new, you need to find a good cleaning solution. It is essential you avoid cleaners that contain acids and alcohols, like vinegar and ammonia as they can damage the materials in the jewelry.
Pegboards are great for organizing just about anything and jewelry is certainly no exception. A piece of pegboard is really cheap and you can use it to create a beautiful jewelry organizer that will hold all of your necklaces, rings, earrings, and bracelets. Just frame the pegboard (if you want) and then add hooks, cups, small baskets, and anything else that you need to keep that jewelry organized. You can hang necklaces from hooks and use plastic cups or baskets to keep your rings organized. Really, there are so many ways that you can put a pegboard to work keeping things organized.
A thin wooden dowel mounted inside a closet or cabinet door using cup hooks is the foundation of a simply chic jewelry hanger. Coat the dowel with semigloss paint.

Whether you’re a DIY maven or a design-obsessed fashionista, there’s a good chance that you’ve spotted the druzy trend. Never heard of the term before?

Mix up some glitter, add a little decoupage, and follow this tutorial for a pair of faux druzy earrings.
Select a mild cleaning agent for your homemade jewelry cleaner recipe. Dish soap with grease-cutting properties can be used, but skip dish soap with harsh anti-bacterial properties as this can strip the finish off jewelry surfaces. Dish soap is a good idea for semi-precious stones with softer surfaces or those that have been chemically treated by the jewelry designer, such as amber and turquoise.

If soaking the jewelry doesn’t clean the pieces well enough, you can use an old soft bristle toothbrush to get a more in-depth clean. Place the brush in the cleaner and gently tap around the mounting with the bristles of the brush. This should help remove any grime and dirt that may have built up in the crevices and around the mount. Dip the ring back in the solution to remove any loose dirt, rinse and place on the towel to dry.
Presto! This works like MAGIC! I’m a jewelry-maker, and sometimes generous friends bestow me with old costume jewelry that I love to take apart and repurpose. I received just such a lot the other day, but the pieces I was interested in were dull and discolored and tarnished. Since I didn’t pay anything for them, and since they were useless to me in their present condition, I figured I’d try this.

An old Jenga game is the perfect place to begin organizing your jewelry.

You could make a few of them if you have loads of earrings to hang or think about using them as gifts for other girls you know that need to get those dangly earrings organized.
Your jewelry will be noticeably cleaner after just the soak. It will even be disinfected, too. Adding the baking soda scrub at the end will ensure that you get everything clean, especially in all the little crevices. If your kitchen faucet has a high-pressure setting, that will be the best thing to use for rinsing your jewelry. Just make sure you hold on tight, because searching for lost objects in the sink trap or garbage disposal is one of the least pleasant tasks in the world. Take my word for it. Consider using a strainer.
This works great, but be careful with gem stones. Some of them like amethyst and emerald and any others which are in the quartz family are heat sensitive. Just put them in once the water has cooled down some. Cubic Zirconia are fazed by anything. They are lab grown under high heat and pressure. I fire them in a kiln at 1650 degrees in silver metal clay jewelry, and they are bothered at all.

Tea tree oil is a known disinfectant and anti-fungal. It isn’t completely necessary to add to your jewelry cleaner, but as I said above, my jewelry can get pretty gross. A small drop of tea-tree oil adds a real antiseptic boost to this homemade jewelry cleaner, so I’m happy to add it. Like I said – I’ve cleaned the chicken coop wearing my wedding rings. I’ll take all of the natural antiseptic power I can get.
With a wooden utensil hanger, a few hooks and a couple of hours of time, you can create a beautiful jewelry hanger that keeps your jewelry organized and handy. You could use a plastic utensil holder for this, but the wood is much sturdier and more attractive. You basically just put the small hooks on top of the larger columns to hang your necklaces and then put several in the smaller areas for holding earrings. You can hang it on the wall and keep all of your jewelry right where you need it and perfectly organized. No more tangled necklaces or missing earrings.

Here's a space-saving trick: Opt for an open-face box that you can mount right onto the wall. When a shadow box is unavailable, any well-chosen crate, bin, or orphaned drawer can be retrofitted with a variety of hooks and knobs, turning your earrings and chains into objets d'art. Small decorative bowls perched on the box's lower ledge corral rings, pins, and brooches and complete the charming trinket tableau.
