since i've seen so many neat earring holders on here, i figured i'd share my solution.  as an aid worker i change country fairly frequently, which makes portability high on my list of desirable characteristics for just about anything:

the earring collection is correspondingly international, with earrings from bolivia, greece, tanzania, guatemala, turkey, saudi arabia, el salvador, chile, croatia and argentina, in addition to those from my two "home bases" of the uk and us.


it's a backgammon board, just a really simple plain wooden one that i got in a toy shop in a pedestrian subway in istanbul.  if someone wanted to make a more elaborate version, there are all sorts of beautiful shell and mother of pearl backgammon boards out there.  here is the board closed:


and here is my necklace storage solution -- teacup hooks in the side of the hutch that sits on my desk.  it's not really portable, but i like it anyway:



you can probably tell i've been experimenting with soldered pendants!  hehe

thanks Smiley  i'd been thinking about the earring thing for a while, trying to come up with a portable way to store them, and then having trouble for ages finding a board that would work... but istanbul is definitely the place to find backgammon boards!

That's a great idea for earring storage. I need to do something with my collection. I have a ton of earrings but hardly ever wear them, largely because I don't have time to go looking for them in the morning. Maybe displaying them neatly in the bathroom would resolve that issue....
