A friend of mine makes the most beautiful earrings. Delicate, eclectic, colorful and equipped with those lovely little hooks for throwing on quickly as you walk out the door.

The trouble, of course, is the storage of these little baubles. I can't seem to keep a pair together, or in a place where they don't tangle up with everything else in my jewelry basket. I've employed silverware trays in the past, but it seems a waste of my valuable storage space to utilize an entire drawer for a few pieces of jewelry.

Another dear friend of mine came up with a brilliant solution that I felt must be shared. Screens!

Old window screens have perfect little holes for earring hooks and can easily keep pairs stored together, and without tangling issues. Of course, screens themselves are not very attractive, so I've got a few ideas for dressing them up.
