Just tried this on jewelry I have not worn for years. OMG!!! It’s amazing. I actually went on a manhunt around the house looking for more gold and silver to try it on. I was recently thinking of having my white gold ring re-dipped. Not anymore. It looks brand new again. I will definitely use this anytime I need to clean my jewelry. Thanks millions for sharing it!
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.
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.

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.
A piece of radiator grate in a frame is perfect for holding those dangling earrings. You just have to cut the grate to fit your wooden frame, assemble it and then hang up your earrings. These are great because they are so decorative and you can paint them if needed so that they match your bedroom décor. 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.
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.

Seashells are one of the best natural materials to make jewelry as they are very cheap and look awesome. Besides, you can find seashells when you go to the beach. Take two shells and make holes in shells and attach 2 jump rings and 2 earring hooks. The final step is to glue pearls. Done! You can use different kinds of shells and pearl beads for more variation. Also, you can use beads to decorate earrings.
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.
Taking an old cigar box and an old sweater, you can make a great ring holder that not only organizes your rings, it protects them as well. What you end up with is a ring display that looks a lot like what you see in the jewelry store, only a lot cheaper. This project is easy and only takes about an hour or so from start to finish. You end up with a place where you can slide your rings in to keep them from being lost or knocked around in the jewelry box. You could also use this to stick your stud earrings in and keep them from being misplaced.
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!

I have a great jewelry polish that is super simple. Take a small piece of aluminum foil, about 1″ square, and put it in the bottom of a coffee cup. Add about a T of baking soda. Pour boiling water over it and dunk your jewelry. You can drop it in and swirl it around, or you can just dunk it a few times and it cleans any tarnish off in seconds. I like to put a twist tie or string on the jewelry and then just dunk it. When I pull it out, sometimes there are some little dark spots. I just rub them out with my finger. This works well on tarnished silver dishes or tableware as well.

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!
