How I store my Jewelry....

The obsession with Jewelry started with me having two Jewelry boxes. Quickly, they both became so cluttered and overflowed with Jewelry that I had to come up with a solution, and fast. 

I wanted to share with you how I store my Jewelry......  One day I was in Staples, restocking on home office supplies and came upon the Command Hooks. Instantly, my imagination flew away....... 

These mini hooks are pretty inexpensive too because you get like 20 in a pack for about $3.00 or $4.00.  You can find them at most department stores. The great thing is that I can remove them without ruining my walls.

I started with a few packs and created this..... 

Earrings and Necklaces 

I use old spray bottles for the bracelets

...but I just saw this idea that I will adopt too....

Now go shop iLLASPARKZ and store your Jewelry in a creative and fun way!!

Sassy (@the_real_sassygotachoppa) from the VH1 Reality Show Black Ink Crew has been officially iLLASPARKZ'd!!

I meet up with her Stylist Sigourney (@stylegxd) whom was the sweetest little thing! I watched her carefully and lovingly select pieces for her client; making sure that the weight, size and color was perfect for her look but mostly her personality.

Sigourney created this look for Sassy's Pre-Birthday Celebration..... All I could say was WOW! Such a great eye for Fashion and Style and I lovvvvved the way that she combined the intricate pieces.

Lets start from the top:

The Necklace that Sassy is wearing is called "Dixie", a Gold Choker Style Necklace.
The Gold Bangles are called "Tereena", Stackable Bangles.
That Bold Ass Ring is "Angel Wings", a Gold Cuff Ring with Angel Wings.... which is an Exclusive Piece!

Create this look and many more..... Shop iLLASPARKZ
