Upcycling is a bit like recycling, except instead of reusing something for the same purpose (rewearing clothing from a thrift store- which is awesome in its own right), it involves taking something that’s been used and giving it a newer, higher value than it had before.

Repurposed Jewelry Organizing Ideas

For some reason if my jewelry is displayed, I wear it more… probably because it’s right there for me to see and choose from, as opposed to a hanger in between my clothes that I forget about.
