Jewelery Organization

Over the last few days I've reorganized (or should I say organized) my jewelery.  All of it was packed into a plastic container with drawers that I bought some time ago....
 But the problem was that all the necklaces were getting tangled, and all the vintage brooches and earrings I've bought recently really didn't fit in anymore.  I needed a solution.  And voila....
I bought this small wire dress form for a few bucks, thinking that I could just hang the necklaces around the neck, but I obviously underestimated the amount of jewelry I had.  Which necessitated an addition of 2 branches that I picked up on my nightly walk. I'm not entirely happy with it, but at least I can see all the necklaces and hanging earrings that I have.  Once I had finished, Hus came in and said "Cool, it looks like Wicker Man!"  Which I suppose was a complement.  Here is a gratuitous close-up shot (since I am still practicing on all the features of my new camera)...
So that freed up space to easily see all my other earrings...
And my much-loved vintage brooches...
And miscellaneous other jewelery....
The plastic container has gone back in my closet, but the wicker-man/wire-bust form will stay on the dresser for awhile.  I see more necklace-wearing in my immediate future!
