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.
hmm…just tried this for a very tarnished rope chain….didn’t work at all….i did use cider vinegar as it was all I had but followed exactly…smelled horrible! Was cider vinegar not good to use? I’m thinking that is why it smells so bad. Ugh…now to get this horrid smell out of my house! I’m bummed…going to try just boiling water and baking soda now and see if that works at all.
If the jewelry is very dirty or very tarnished – like silver or gold – then you may need to repeat the process so just add a little more baking soda and more boiling water – but make sure it’s boiling, that’s key!  You can also use a toothbrush to get in all the nooks and crannies of detailed jewelry. Be careful with precious gems, stones and metals.

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.
When your favorite pieces of jewelry no longer sparkle, you can clean them at home with a simple jewelry cleaner with ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry. Commercial cleaners can be a bit on the expensive side and are full of harsh chemicals that are harmful to the environment. The best natural jewelry cleaner costs pennies to make and doesn’t contain any harsh chemicals.
I just tried this on my Tiffany’s heart and ball chain and realized after I started boiling the water I was out of baking soda…put the vigenar and salt in the boiling water anyways and poured into the pan. Wosrt thing that I figured could happen would be it wouldn’t work and I wasted a little vinegar and water..as i pourd the steaming hot liquid into the pan I WATCHED it get cleaned instantly. This works without the baking soda! I wished I had taken a video of it! Coolest thing to see happen! Thank you!

If you have a few pieces of chicken wire on hand, you can create an absolutely stunning hanger for your earrings and other jewelry. You’ll need a one-by-two foot piece of chicken wire as well as a few pieces of wood to build the frame. The framed holder hangs with a piece of ribbon or whatever you want to use to hang it and it costs only about $2 to make. Plus, it’s relatively easy and will hold loads of jewelry. Add a few small nails or hooks to the wooden part for holding necklaces and bracelets and your earrings will just hang across the wire in the center.
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.
The framed jewelry organized featured on monaluna is both elegant and practical. Notice that it has a thin storage tray at the bottom. It’s useful for storing pendants, rings and other small jewelry pieces and accessories. We also like the fact that the frame and the back panel were painted all white. If you want, you can use some sandpaper to create a distressed, vintage look.
be careful with the white gold, most of it is plated with rhodium (a metal in the platinum family); white gold itself is dull, and this is done to make it shiny. I had a jeweller in the family, and got my original wedding band from him, many years ago. When he asked if I wanted it plated, I said no. I’m sure my face was a treat when I first saw it; it was immediately plated! This method of cleaning might remove the plating eventually. I’d check with a jeweller before doing it too often.
