I got this sweet idea once to use a cake tier for my jewelry. First tier for earrings and rings, second for bracelets, third for whatever else didn'??t fit into the top two tiers. Genius and attractive. Apparently I am neither. Did I actually think I was going to keep things separated in an orderly fashion in what boils down to as just a dish? (That'??s the not '??genius'? part.) Now I can'??t find my other fancy glass earring I got in Montreal, have no idea where my casual charm bracelet went, and certainly won'??t be able to wear my glitzy scarab ring until I figure out where it is. (This is the not '??attractive'? part.)
When I saw that the Rattan Resort Collection by Great Useful Stuff (AKA, my new friend G.U.S.) had a woven accessory holder that broke your accessories down by event, I was mesmerized. Seems we'??ve recovered the '??genius'? part.
This adorable three-tray box lets you store your jewelry by theme. No more wasted time searching for that perfect piece to make your outfit work. It goes by daytime meetings (my charm bracelet), night on the town evening wear (my scarab ring), and sparkly special occasion (my glass Canadian bobbles). Each tray has room for earrings, bracelets, necklaces and more, so it's simple to put together the right look for each occasion. Just go to the right tray and don your pieces...no more pushing aside the diamonds to get to the plastic beads for the soccer game.
It comes in a natural rattan with faux leather lining, so it goes with any dÃ©cor. And there'??s the '??attractive'? part again. This jewelry box was mentioned in this month'??s Real Simple issue, so you know it must be a fantastic idea. I don'??t think that magazine is capable of alerting us to anything but. The line also has a great hair styling station, so your cords can stop getting as tangled as your child'??s hair does.
So there we are'?¦back to genius and attractive. I like it better that way.
The Rattan Resort Collection'??s Jewelry Tray is available at GreatUsefulStuff.com for $49.99.
