    I have used plastic canvas that people use for needlepoint before. I have a little one that I used for travel. Works great.

    I had a small plastic see thru box I use. I also have so many I even use a large note card, like an index card. Whatever you can come up with, I am sure it will work!

    I use dollar store ice cube trays. One tray for gold, silver, black, etc. I an fortunate enough to have found a small dresser that doubles as a night stand. All my accessories are stored in the drawers. Scarves, bracelets and earing trays. This keeps out dust and keeps things within reach. I've even pulled out the whole drawer to lay on my bed to look over or straighten up my accessories each season.

    Maybe put pairs together on a large button and store them in a drawer in ice cube trays or egg cartons.

    Daily pill dispensers are great and have covers so you are less likely to accidentally drop them if you are moving them.

    If you have room by where you take them out - - a small corkboard in cute frame might be cute on the wall. Maybe a little tray under it ??

    Here's what I do for those hard-to-store jewelry. You know those styrofoam blocks that come with boxed furniture? Take one solid piece and cut it to size, glue wrap a nice cover (e.g. contact paper, fabric, anything). Then stick in those earrings. Voila. I also use this in the sewing room as a handy pin cushion.

    You can also use duct tape to cover the styrofoam block. They come in various funky colors and patterns -- your dollar store may have them.

    Many people choose the Styrofoam heads from wigs ! Always there. Stands up perfectly. Pretty portable. Can also display your favorite hat ! Guests love the creativity !

    An embroidery hoop, some wider mesh screening (wide enough for the posts to go through without tearing) from a DIY store. Put the screening between the hoops to secure; tighten the hoops. Glue some ribbon around the outer hoop, make a hanging loop and place through the hoop screw. You can also use the plastic mesh for needlework but instead of putting it between the hoops, hot glue it to the top of the hoops and use wider ribbon to cover the hoop and the edge of the plastic. You can hang any of your earrings on either of these ideas.

      @Smp You're welcome. You can also adapt this same idea to a picture frame, just make sure you put something behind the frame so that it will stand out from the wall a bit.
