    Makeover Your Jewelry to Save
    You may be surprised at what you'll find you have after a few cleanings, some organizing and repair.

    Accessorizing can be an inexpensive way to update your wardrobe, but it's wise to do a quick inventory of what you already have before you head out shopping.

    You may be surprised at what you'll find you have after a few cleanings, some organizing and repair.

    "You should always keep everything in little plastic bags", says Jennifer Stock, a New York jewelry designer.

    Sealable bags, found at your local craft store, work best. Not only do the bags protect jewelry from scratches and oxidation, they are a great organizing tool, as well.

    Stock also suggests that when you do shop, look for quality details, like necklaces with the classic pearl knotting technique. Also, check out the clasp to make sure it works.
