Small Fingers are not an Issue

Wednesday, May 11, 2011

I've been meaning to share this with you for quite some time but I keep forgetting. Since I do a lot of DIY's, I've managed to collect a multitude of accessories over the years. It became such a pain looking for a certain necklace and finally untangling them from the bunch so I came up with a very cheap and easy DIY to manage them better:
Just buy an inexpensive cork board from your local book store or craft store, attach it to the inside of your closet or anywhere else you'd like and stick your necklaces to them with tacks. Fully customizable for your pleasure. :)

And lastly, I have really thin fingers and I always get frustrated because most of the rings selling in the market are usually a size 7/8 which I am far from. I have passed on a lot of beautiful rings because they wouldn't fit and now, I don't have to cause I found Ring Snuggies!
I love the check out counter at True Value. I've found a lot of very useful things there like my amazing light up tweezer and stylists tape. :)
Ring Snuggies are very easy to use. They are clear tubes in different shapes to suit the shape of your ring band; ie: circular or rectangular. The tube has a slit that you can easily slip your ring into for a perfectly snug fit like this:
Also works great for people with enlarged knuckles. Trust me, they are worth every penny/centavo! :)

Love the cork board idea! I did something similar with my necklaces until I got a huge jewelry armoire last year! Also, thanks for the info about the ring snuggies! I have larger fingers (size 6 1/2), but as you noted, many rings come in 7 or 8, so they are still sometimes a little loose on me!

@hazel: true value in shang plaza :)

wow!gonna make use with this stock cork board here! Thanks for that info! :) and yay i love those necklaces!

Shasie said...

The ring snuggies are a very good idea! I hate when I want rings but they are out of my size!!! Also I like your corkboard idea for the necklaces. I actually have a row of 3M hooks on each side of the mirror, but every now and then they still get tangled, so I'll have to try this approach. I imagine doing something artsy to the corkboard too.
