Buying gems is easy. Finding a good way of storing them without ending up with a seriously tangled mess can, however, be a challenge. Previously, I used to keep my jewelleries in drawers, in purses, and pretty much all around. This was of course both messy and very hard on the gems.
Hanging them on a painted board therefore turned out as a good solution. I got the boards for just 5 kr (less than one dollar) on a flee market and splashed on several coats of painting. Now my collection of jewelleries are both well organized and decorative.
