IMG_6064Here’s a great trick to keep your delicate chain necklaces from tangling! You all know how much I LOVE small zip lock baggies and they are the perfect solution for this problem! Typically women store delicate chain necklaces in a pouch, box or tray. This is a good way to keep things organized but too often when you go to wear this piece, it has somehow tangled. This knotting chain effect can be a real pill to undo, especially if you are in a hurry. So, I recommend storing your delicate necklaces in a small zip lock bag and do this one little trick to keep them from tangling which I show below in the pictures.

Below: I sourced my favorite zip lock baggie here. (My favorite size is 4 inches x 4 inches square!) You can buy a pack of 100 for $2.09 plus shipping! A great investment!

IMG_6065Here’s the trick! Drum roll please! Okay, so when you place your necklace into the baggie, carefully pull the clasp just outside the bag and lock line. Now, “zip” the lock closed and the clasp should be on the outside. This will help keep the necklace from tangling and works 99% of the time. See below how I have placed the necklace in the baggie and secured the clasp portion outside the zip line.
