I have a TON of necklaces that I store hanging up on hooks so they don't tangle. I'm looking for any other ways that are more organized. Any ideas???

I found a cork board that I can hang out of the way; either in a closet or on the bedroom wall, anywhere really. Then I bought those screw in type cup hangers. Screwed them into the cork and hang my necklaces on them.
Did that make sense?

I have a little "tree" looking thing that I got from Ikea that I hang them on. It has several little "branches" that allow me to hang them separated so they don't tangle. I also have a smaller one for rings.

I like jewlery bags that roll up. It keeps them cleaner and untangled. Real stuff I keep in the hard box it came in.

I don't know. I have a jewelry box that has these little racks that I hang my necklaces on and they never get tangled.

I have a closet with two handles on each door (it's like a sliding door kind of closet, where it's on a track and the doors open away from each other - I don't know how else to describe it - but it's not like two normal doors that you pull open) and i just hang my necklaces on the handles It's not super fancy or anything but it's easy and saves me the money I'd spend on buying anything else to store them in. However, almost everything that I own is fairly inexpensive costume jewelry. Anything that's delicate I just lay in my jewelry box. That's all of one or two necklaces though Although that necklace tree thing that thepinksquid mentioned sounds pretty cool

PT, can I just ask where you got these from?

I've seen people with them and they seem like the perfect solution for travelling.

You can find cheap ones at places like Kmart, walmart etc. But check dollar stores and goodwills. They sometimes have those there. If you want to keep your good stuff in them I suggest a bit of tissue or cloth from the craftstore so the necklace does not rub and scratch any polished parts that are large, softer golds and pearls.

I made a...thing. Went to the craft store and bought a piece of wood that had been routered along the edges. It's about 12 x 4, I guess. I sanded it, painted it, decoupaged a design on it, then drilled evenly-spaced holes and screwed in cabinet door pulls. The plaque hangs on the wall in my bedroom in one corner, and all my necklaces -- I have a TON of those beady/bulky costume jewelry necklaces, long and short -- hang on the door pulls.

I'm not a creative person. I got the idea because my local bead-store sells these things. But it was a crafty project to do last Thanksgiving while I was hanging out with my parents for a week and a half. It's been a real solution for me and has worked out great. I love it.

Thanks PT, I'll keep an eye out next time I'm at the shops.

To answer the OP, I store necklaces in a variety of places. I have a small "cupboard" on my chest of drawers that has 6 small drawers in it and I keep some of the necklaces in there. I also have several round cane baskets with lids (they're in various sizes, stacked on top of each other) that look like they belong to a snake charmer and I keep a lot of special necklaces in their boxes in those. I also have a couple of sets of small drawers I keep inside my wardrobe for costume jewelery necklaces and I have a small jewelery box with velvet lining for other special necklaces without boxes.

I must say though, reading through these posts, some of you ladies have some excellent ideas for necklace storage which I might use.
