On the half shell

Unlike my sister-in-law Jaclyn, who has her jewelry neatly displayed, I strew my rings and things all over the house.


Responsible? No. But now that I’ve got a bunch of oyster shells to store them in, my little piles of jewelry are so much more interesting.


‘Tis the easiest thing in the world: I found oyster shells on the beach, cleaned them off, boiled them (to take out the ocean funk), et voila.


Makes me wish I wore more pearls.

    what a neat idea – very cute. i think large scallop shells might work nicely too.

    I’m loving that last ring!

    my jewelry is scattered everywhere as well, but I kind of like it, it gives my room a fun look

    Wow. Very nice. I have a feeling that if I tried to pull this off, I would end up with scattered shells as well as scattered jewellery everywhere. Hats off to you!

    I love this idea, I have a bunch of shells but never thought of using them for jewelry dishes!
    That’s so cute, definitely going to do that now

    You’re so creative! I swear, your jewellery must be the most nicely stored ever what with this idea, and didn’t you do a post awhile back where you stored some on these decorative plates? Makes me feel shameful of my random box of tangled necklaces haha
