Traveling somewhere fun I take it? Time to talk jewelry packing! Here are some great tips for a hassle free experience.
Plan your accessories according to your outfits, then pack them in the way you’ve planned them. A great way to do this is by using zip loe quarters of the way, place the bag on a flat surface and pass you hand over it to empty it of air, finish zipping the bag. This will keep the pieces from rubbing against each other and will keep them organized in sets according to outfits.
You can easily mark the zip lock bags to remind yourself of the outfit they’re meant for.

Ok on to bangles: Provide support for bangle bracelets by placing them on your rolled scarves or socks.
Always protect your pieces from travel damage by wrapping them up with soft fabric to minimize abrasion. If keeping them in their original boxes is not an option, go for 1 solid box to protect them from being squished and wrap each item in a tissue paper or a piece of soft cloth to keep them from scratching each other. Don’t forget to separate your earring pairs too as they may also scratch each other.
