Displaying your jewelry designs

Posted on

Good morning all. This is Kim with Fantastical Menagerie. My summer season has started with a great bang, and for those of you who also make jewelry, I’m sure you think about how best to display the unique pieces you craft. Whether it is at home or at a show, it can be tricky to come up with ways that show your pieces to their best advantage, and let others know how unique your things are. I’ve found some excellent craftsmen on Etsy that make some excellent displays, ship, and are happy to customize them.

WhatWeMade is based in Arizona, and has some unique designs. Their necklace bust is gorgeous, wooden, and striking with any silver pieces you have.

DalesWoodandMore has a lovely wall unit that would be great for personal collections, or hanging on grid for a nice table display.

If you want to go more metal, BlackIronIndustrial has some unique shelving and bar selections.

I also love this wonderful travel case from Canoa Naturals

It is versatile and pretty. If looking to make your own display, there are a number of tutorials out there to make it a snap for any crafty person!


Make your own Jewelry Box

Posted on

As I’ve said many times, I’m not big on owning jewelry myself, but this is a great tutorial for those out there in need of an extra display for their product or just safe storage for their growing collection …but are strapped on cash.

The materials needed are pretty simple:
1.A sturdy cardboard/plastic box
2. Glitter foam sheet/tape
3.Pretty Washi Tape
4.Hair Curlers (the foam ones) in coordinating colors
5.A mirror to fit inside the box’s lid
6. Faux Pearls
7. A Pair of Scissors, Double-sided Tape and E-6000 glue

Now, I wouldn’t say this is a hard list that you have to stick to. If washi tape is not your thing you could easily replace it with contact paper and achieve the same (or better!) look. The genius idea from this site for me was using the cheap foam hair curlers as your jewelry separators. Such an elegant and simple solution. 🙂 You can find the full tutorial here at A Bubbly Life with step by step and fully illustrated instructions.
