Excuse me while I recover. *Deep breaths*
What a HUGE collection, congratulations! And such a great storage solution as well :) May I ask, that gold heart charm catcher, is it Juicy Couture or another brand? And if it is Juicy, would you mind telling me the sku/style number? Also is there a silver one?
As a person who is obsessed with craft & everything creative, I sincerely take my hat off to you. That is so incredible and beautiful that I actually stopped breathing for a few seconds when I saw it
WOW. Talk about interior design, those look like art pieces! I love the way you've put the charms on diagonals instead of straight horizontal lines (if that makes sense). Very nice indeed :)
This thread has really inspired me - and made me even more ashamed that as yet I don't have any Juicy charms at all

Reason: Missed out a word, and a typo, sorry!
I keep mine in all of its original packing and boxes on my dresser until they began to take up too much room. I like the chest idea above but simply cannot bear the thought of mixing of the charms with the wrong boxes or having to find a place for the boxes apart from the charms.
I always was afraid of using the chest idea because if someone broke in they would have my whole collection.
I did find, however, that I needed them where I could get to them. I almost repurchased a charm I already had! What an addiction!
Yeah, I almost did that as well not too long ago with purchasing the same charm I already had in my collection. At that point, I decided to keep a running list of the charms I have and the charms I want. It really helps for me to physically see what I have and the total number. I also have my charms grouped by the year they were issued and in alphabetical order. It makes a huge difference!
I have made a series of miniature shops to display my charms. I don't wear them, just enjoy looking at them and arranging. I started with one shop and now I am up to eight with different themes! It's still a work in progress and I may need to add yet another store to this mini mall of Juicy because charms continue to show up in my house with mysterious regularity, lol. Some of my shop names are: Canine Couture, Juicy Jewels, Juicy Jetsetter, etc. Someday I will get around to taking better photos but meanwhile, hope you enjoy the pics.
I just saw your collection. Wow - it's stunning! I love you're collection and fairy tale-like charm display. Thanks for sharing!
ps; Thanks everyone for sharing all of your collections. You've inspired me to organize my various charms....
Wow! The shadowbox idea is cool!
I have an antique apothecary chest that I've been using as a jewelry chest for years. A while back I switched it all around and gave the juicy charms their own drawer.
Just took pictures of it....now, to find out how to insert images here!
