Cute Acrylic Earring Closet…

Acrylic Earring Closet

A few weeks ago I featured this nifty little acrylic earring holder in my September Favourites video *click here* to check it out if you haven’t treated your eyes & ears already chums 😉 Many of you seemed rather taken by this sassy little space-saver, so to showcase it in all it’s glory I thought I’d give it it’s very own Friday feature here on Confetti & Curves!

 You see ladies, I was previously in the throws of a seasonal clear out when I discovered the vast amount of little earrings I was harbouring in a number of boxes & bags scattered around the house. Sadly, many of these earrings weren’t getting worn for the simple reason that I’d literally forgotten about them. So after consulting with the virtual oracle (aka Google) I stumbled upon this handy-dandy folding acrylic jewellery holder…

If I’m totally honest it was love at first sight… instantly I knew it would be the perfect solution to my earring storage problems. It’s roomy, takes up minimal space & looks rather chic too, don’t you think?

As you can see it’s totally foldable, which means it’s super easy-peasy to neatly store away if you’re battling hoards of beauty clutter (like myself) Alternatively you can leave the mini earring closet wide open to the world to display your delightful collection of lobe jewellery.

As shown, it’s dispels any dilemmas for hanging hook style earrings or simple stud backings, thanks to the simple yet ingenious shape of the racks. It also has the capacity to store up to 125 pairs of earrings – not bad at all right?

For a mere £8, it’s such a bargain! Considering I’ve previously hunted the high street looking for something similar there unfortunately hasn’t been anything out there that rivals the size capacity & handiness of this little gadget.

Of course as many of us cosmetic cravers tend to swoon over acrylic storage items, this is undoubtedly the perfect match to add a touch of consistency to any vanity table if you’ve already invested in muji style make-up boxes. Best of all, I’m now getting full use of my earrings – especially after most of them were hidden away in a treasure trove of hiding places for so long. My entire collection is now in full view so I can pick and choose whatever styles I like on a daily basis.

I’m also thinking this could very well be a super little gift for friends and family, particularly as the ‘season to be jolly’ is only a matter of weeks away!

Happy Friday Peeps!!

Today’s post is a little different from my usual as the lovely folk over at Invaluable got in touch and asked if I’d like to do a bit of a fun collab on a rather glitzy topic…

If you aren’t familiar with Invaluable.com it’s a superb website containing listings of beautiful jewelery, art & collectibles (amongst many other fancy goodies). Do have a peek at some of the stunning items for sale, it really is a virtual treasure trove. If you fancy your luck placing a few bids you just may end up with a gorgeous glitzy keepsake of your very own to cherish!

So of course, all this scanning over radiant rocks and precious pearls has made me want to have a good rummage through my own little jewellery box. Here’s what I found…

Earrings

Okay, so my earring collection may not rival Her Majesties but I love it… collecting cutesy, quirky little earrings is just my thing. The cuter and (obviously) more owl like the better in my humble opinion!

Aren’t they a hoot? 😀 Yep, slightly obsessed with owls – have been for years but lately with a boom in owl jewellery they’re much easier to come across. These 3 pairs were all bought by Steve who loves nothing better *it would seem* to lavish his own bird with birds 😉

Onto the necklaces, now I must confess it’s not often I wear necklaces but every now and again I’ll dabble in a little neck decor… as expected, more owls… the gorgeous big one was a surprise from Hayley my step-daughter and the teeny turquoise one I spotted at a local craft stall and had to have him. A few of the others are costume jewellery I’ve picked up here and there however the little cross and angel on the end were a gift that was given to me a few years ago. My faith is an important part of my life and this is such a sentimental keepsake in it’s honour.

Up until a few years ago I was a huge bracelet hoarder… in fact I had to clear out an enormous amount of little trinket bracelets I’d collected over the years and had no room for. However now I’ve somewhat downsized I’m no longer struggling for choice. I’m a huge fan of silver so everything I buy is always in cool metallics. As for watches I’m one of those bizarre folk who cannot bear a watch on my wrist (even though I’ve hoarded a few rather pretty ones over the years) rather odd considering up until a few years ago I couldn’t have left the house without wearing one!

This is by far one of the most sentimental pieces of jewellery I own. It’s an incredibly old charm bracelet that was handed down to me by my grandmother. Over the years family members have added to it by buying such intriguing and quirky little additions. I absolutely adore it in every sense, however it’s not something I’d wear for fear of loosing it but most definitely a treat to look at every now and again. See how the little keys spell out I-Love-You? Also, the tiny little girl on the swing actually moves!
