We LOVE These Jewelry Storage Ideas!

 

Sure, jewelry boxes are okay, but how about something that can brighten up your room or make for more unique jewelry storage. We went next door to Be the Boutique, and gathered any type of stand, bowl or tray we could find. We had so much fun experimenting with these brightly colored pieces. We made sure to list what we used in the making of the jewelry storage display as well as the designer jewelry photographed underneath each image. As you can see, things like mirrors, cake platters, coffee cups, measuring cups and even candle holders can make for surprisingly great jewelry holders! (This could also be a wonderful gift idea!)

Of course, after you visit Be the Boutique at 56th & Illinois for your jewelry storage purchase, be sure to stop G. Thrapp Jewelers and buy some jewelry to fill that storage!

Lika Behar Jewelry

Lika Behar was born in the magnificent city of Istanbul. With roots in ancient Anatolian civilizations, this former Byzantine capital has evolved into a cosmopolitan metropolis which juxtaposes sublime historical architectural expressions within a modern skyline. As such, Istanbul is known as one of the truly great romantic destinations of the world and is the fundamental source of inspiration for the Lika Behar Collection.

Lika’s family lineage is one of storied gold coin dealers; a trade long believed to be the lifeline of the Mediterranean. Her collection elegantly reconciles the rich inspiration of ancient jewelry traditions, utilizing only pure and nimble 24 Karat gold. The results are pieces wrought with a sensual and tactile modernism. The 2008 collection is also infused with brilliant gemstones reflecting the varying hues that recall the depths of blue waters that cradle Lika’s birth country. Her workroom in Istanbul deftly reconciles ancient history with the sensibility of the modern world. Each piece from the collection is uniquely hand wrought with the exquisite precision once celebrated by ancient artisans; yielding a tawny luxury fit for the modern woman whose jewelry reflects, at the same time ancient history, and the art that is the modern feminine spirit.
