Swinging Towel Bar Jewelry Holder

It seems like I’ve always had problems trying to figure out how to store my jewelry, especially my long necklaces. I have a jewelry box that is great for shorter necklaces, but the long ones just get tangled. I also used to have a jewelry tree that had hooks on it. It ended up breaking and also wasn’t really tall enough for my long necklaces. My mom happened to be here last weekend and found my huge pile of tangled necklaces. She was determined to find a spot for them. As I was putting away laundry, she asked me to come look at her idea. Lo and behold, she used our swinging towel bar as a jewelry holder. I immediately loved the idea!





You can purchase swinging towel bars for as little as $6 on Amazon like this Swinging Towel Holder.  If you want to spend a bit more and get one like I have, the Ikea Swinging Towel Holder is under $20. The nice thing about this jewelry holder is that none of your jewelry gets tangled and it’s easy to see your options. When I want to put a necklace or bracelet back on, I put it on the end and slide the rest of it back. It’s also a great option if you have kids. You can mount it higher on a wall so it’s out of reach of little hands. My boys aren’t too into my jewelry, but I can only imagine that my daughter will want to be in it as she gets older. I’ve had my jewelry on the bar for well over a week and I find that I am wearing it more and it works well. I like that I can swing out the specific bar that I need to take off a bracelet or necklace.  I also have two extra bars that I could use for watches or more necklaces.  Simple and easy solution!

    I love using things for what they weren’t intended. Sometimes thinking outside the box creates something better. 🙂

    Such a great idea! I don’t have a lot of jewelry but maybe if I had what I do have within easy reach I’d wear it more often.

    This is a great idea! I also become annoyed when necklaces do not fit right in a jewelry box. I may even be able to get this high enough so the cats don’t think it’s a rack of toys. 😉

      I keep expecting her to slow down since she’s almost 65, but she continues to amaze. She was here last week and worked on my house and yard for 3 days straight. I had to take naps and she kept going. I swear she is the energizer bunny.

    Ok, this may just be the most brilliant idea I’ve seen yet to store jewelry. Love it! The fact that you can swing the bars out is very cool, keeping things from getting tangled.

    I like this idea so much more than the old drawers or other things. This makes sure you can still see all the pieces. Great idea!
