I need to try this on my grandmother’s sterling service that got willed to me. My Dad keeps asking me why I don’t set the table with it for holidays; I don’t want to tell him I’m afraid his mother’s silverware would give us all food poisoning…I have silver polish but I wince–and quickly find another chore to do–every time I think about having to stand there and individually polish an 80-piece sterling service set!
The first evidence you’re going to have that this homemade jewelry cleaner worked will be all the stuff floating around in your vinegar/tea tree oil liquid. The last time I put my jewelry in this mixture I didn’t think it was too dirty, and it didn’t exactly need cleaning. Within just a few minutes, though, there was so much stuff floating around in the water that I was appalled.

Remember those silhouettes that you made for your mom when you were a kid? Well, this jewelry organizer uses the same concept only you get a great bust that you can use to keep necklaces and other jewelry untangled and organized. It’s really easy and cheap to make and so adorable that you’ll want it just for the decorative purposes alone. Plus, you can use any number of templates to create it, even your own silhouette (you remember how to do those, right?). This is great for bulkier necklaces that won’t fit in the jewelry box and it would make the perfect gift.
For starters, consider repurposing a spice rack into a necklace holder. It would be an easy transformation. All you’d need to do is stain or paint the rack and then screw in some hooks. When you’re done, install it on the wall. IKEA Bekvam racks have this rod that can come in very handy when hanging necklaces or bracelets.
An old embroidery hoop and a few strips of lace give you the perfect place to hang and organize your earrings. You don’t even have to glue this one. Just separate the hoop and place the lace ribbon inside before putting it all back together. The hoop hangs perfectly on the wall and you can add as much lace as you need to keep all of your earrings organized. It’s beautiful, easy to make, and best of all, cheap. You can literally make one of these in about five minutes and if you have the hoop and lace on hand, it won’t cost you anything. You could also use strips of fabric if that’s what you have.
You can run out and buy a jewelry box but why would you when you can DIY it? This is a great project and one that gives you room to store all of your jewelry in one place. There are hooks for your necklaces and bracelets, a place to hang earrings, and even a small shelf where you can keep bowls for rings and earring studs. This is the perfect jewelry organizer and one that you can completely make from scratch, and with just a few supplies. You’ll need wood of course and a few other key materials. What you end up with is jewelry storage that looks like something expensive. Only you will know it’s a DIY project.
When you’re organizing jewelry, you certainly can’t forget about the little girls in your life. This kids’ organizer is perfect for little necklaces and bracelets and it’s very easy to make. You’ll need wooden pegs and a frame, which you can get for around $1 each and something to fill in the center. We love the idea of using an old loom to create a place in the center for hanging earrings. This is a really easy project and one that your little one can help you to make and decorate. Just add a little paint or decoupage some pictures on the frame.
I even cautiously tried the leftover solution on a costume jewellery pair of earrings (I DON’T recommend anyone else reading this to try this though as your jewellery could be very different quality to mine!) and it worked to remove the last bits of tarnish off the chain- already used baking soda on it before and most of it was shiny as new, but this last method completely removed everything else. My costume jewellery was made of very good metal and handiwork so the solution did not damage my jewellery. Thank you so much again for such invaluable tips and advice!
i work in precious metals so i have used rubbing alcohol, just put gold or silver in a jar, with the rubbing alcohol and wait overnight. there should be a drastic difference in shine and clarity. it does work for all types of jewelry and precious metals except for pearls and rhodium. definitely do not use this stuff on rhodium. it may cause an explosion, just maybe with rhodium.
A cheese grater is the perfect earring holder. Now, we’re talking about those full, standup graters that you can buy just about anywhere if you don’t already have one that you can use. Paint over the metal if you want and add lace or whatever else you want to make it a bit more decorative. Then just stick your earring backs into the holes in the grater. Voila! Instant earring organization and it takes just a few minutes and won’t cost anything if you have an old grater that you can use. Note that this one works best for hanging earrings.

A necklace holder can be as simple as a wooden board with some knobs on it. Actually that’s a pretty good description of the project showcased on asmithofalltrades. As you can probably anticipate, you don’t need many things if you want to make something similar. So go find yourself a board, stain it or paint it, drill two holes in two of its corners so you can hang it and screw in a few knobs. You can mix and match them however you want.
I just used this to clean mine and my husband’s silver wedding bands. This stuff is great. Our bands were looking pretty dingy and we bought some professional silver cleaner and it made them look worse. I was horrified, but then I found this recipe, tried it, and had success. I cut the recipe in half since I was just cleaning two rings. It apparently didn’t change the cleaning power because they haven’t been this shiny in forever! Thanks for posting the recipe. Will use from now on!
