How to Untangle Jewelry. There are few things more annoying than when you're in a rush to get out of the house and you discover that your jewelry is tangled up. It's a fact of life that even if you're ultra-organized, your necklaces are bound to get tangled up and wrap around your earrings and bracelets.
Things You'll Need
- Solid surface
- Push pin or needle
- Magnifying glass
Lay all of your jewelry out on a smooth surface, like a table-top or bed. Sort through it with your hands.
Separate whatever you can. Look for earrings, necklaces and bracelets that are easy to separate. Set them aside from the jumble of jewelry.
Unlatch the clasp of tangled necklaces and bracelets. They are easier to untangle if they're not latched.
Slowly follow each piece of jewelry, re-tracing its steps if you will, to get it untangled. Be careful not to cause more knots or kinks into chains.
Roll knots gently between your pointer finger and thumb to loosen them up.
Tackle tough knots with a needle or push pin. Work the sharp point into the middle of the knot. Use a magnifying glass if you have one to find the middle of the knot.
Focus on one knot at a time. Keep working the chain with the sharp point until the knots loosen.
