As I was packing for a recent trip I remembered a tip I saw online about packing necklaces with straws to keep the chains from tangling. It was brilliant, I remembered thinking, so I proposed to give it a try.
The idea is that you unhook the fastener, pass one end of the chain through the length of a straw and then fasten it up at the other end. If you wish to use the same technique with a shorter chain or a bracelet you can easily snip the straw shorter with scissors.
See how nicely they lie? Here's a closer shot of it.
These can be laid in the bottom of a bag and cannot tangle around one another at all. What a great idea.
It would even work to store them like this in the jewelry box as I am always trying to untangle them to wear. It would make selecting one easier, too.
