If you’re anything like us, all your jewelry is in a box where you often forget about it. Once in a while you may remember and try to wear something special, but then you find it’s in a tangled mess. You know, probably because you left it in a box.
Geodes are the prettiest DIY you can literally grow. Borax and water left overnight will eventually crystalize into any color you want with a little food dye. Seal it with some gold paint and nail polish coating, and you have the most beautiful little geodes. A geode jewelry hanger makes displaying your necklaces tangle-free and twice as beautiful.
