How to Achieve a Minimalist Display

Create a minimalist haven for your customers.

How to Achieve a Minimalist Display | Nile Corp
Source: Pinterest.co.uk | Virginie Vral
Minimalism is a popular style the transcends time and industries. Minimalist fashionistas usually go with wardrobe pieces in a color or two, while minimalist interior designers use minimal furniture and colors. In the jewelry industry, you can find rings with thins with simple designs. And what better way to showcase them but in an equally chic minimalist display?

Here are a few tips on how to achieve a frills-free jewelry display to entice more potential customers.


Minimal furniture and displays

Of course, you’ll only need a few pieces of furniture. A long table to place your necklace displays and jewelry trays is enough, but you can add an accent chair and a wall or floor lamp with a modern design. Do not put unnecessary furniture as it will only cause a distraction to your items on display.
    

Usage of one to three colors

How to Achieve a Minimalist Display | Nile Corp
Teal accent curtains
Black and white are the usual colors of a minimalist design. However, you can also go with other colors, but choose subtle ones that are easy on the eyes. The rule is, only to use one to three. You can have your walls painted in white, but leave one wall in a different color. This will be your accent wall. You can also put some decors in the same accent color. Simple patterns would look good as well, like bold lines. Stay away from intricate patterns, such as checkers.


Big spaces

Minimalism is all about bare surfaces and big spaces. Most of the flat surfaces in your shop should be clear, as with most of the floor area. The surfaces should only hold your jewelry displays which should also have minimalist designs. The entire shop should only have the essentials. As for the walls, keep them bare. But a decor or two, like a simple piece of artwork, is okay.


Lighting

Lighting is crucial in a minimalist space. It can be a decorative tool with the right space. Floor lamps double as decor and lighting, which saves you so much space. Remember though not to go with super bright fluorescent lighting that will make your customers feel like they are in a hospital.


In summary, your goal should be to give your customers a relaxing experience they’ll remember. They should feel at ease when shopping for jewelry, so avoid giving them visual clutter with unnecessary items.

Why You Need Metal Jewelry Displays

Here are the reasons why metal jewelry displays are a must-have for jewelry shop owners.



Shop Nile Corp Wholesale Metal Arrows Jewelry Display Organizer


If you are jewelry shop owner, you know the importance of jewelry displays. They are your store's silent salespersons. The common ones are the necklace display busts with a wooden base or easel. But have you tried the metal types? If you haven't yet, it's time you do, as metal displays have many advantages. And without further ado, here are the reasons why you need metal jewelry displays.


Unique and ergonomic designs



Shop Nile Corp Wholesale Necklace Metal Display


Metal displays, unlike the traditional ones, look trendier and have more designs. They are available in different colors and uses as well. Because most of them have removable parts, they are easy to set up and store. You also don't need a huge space for this ergonomically designed display.


Sturdy



Shop Nile Corp Wholesale Necklace Metal Display

Metal is a harder and more durable material. Unlike wood, it does not break easily. These qualities make it ideal for owners who are frequently on the move to craft shows and other events. You don't have to worry about packing them with other stuff and risk breaking them.


Easy to clean



Shop Nile Corp Wholesale Metal Arrows Jewelry Display and Jewelry Stand Hanger Organizer


To clean metal jewelry displays, all you need is a soft lint-free towel. Gently wipe all the nooks and crannies and corners. For stubborn dirt, you can dampen the cloth in a mild soap and water solution and gently scrub the surface. Clean the soap off with another damp cloth and wipe the wetness off with a soft towel.


Can hold many pieces



Shop Nile Corp Wholesale Metal Jewelry Display Jewelry Stand Hanger Organizer


Most metal jewelry displays can hold all types of jewelry. There are designs made especially for necklaces but also have holes where you can hang bracelets and hook earrings. The base stand can also hold smaller pieces such as rings and thin bracelets. It's your all-in-one jewelry organizer.


Enhances the beauty of your jewelry



Shop Nile Corp Wholesale Metal Wire Earring Display


Most metals of these displays are black which enhances the brilliance of your jewelry. That means the best pieces to display with these are diamond jewelry and light-colored gemstones. In contrast, those metal displays with pastel-colored metals such as pink and blue are perfect for jewelry with dark-colored crystals.

How to Wire Wrap Gemstone Pendants

Here are the basics to making your own gemstone pendant necklaces



How to Wire Wrap Gemstone Pendants | Nile Corp


There’s nothing more fun and fulfilling than creating your own gemstone jewelry and wearing them afterward. You get to customize the design, and you get to add a personal touch to your look. If you haven’t started making one yet but are planning to, then you’ve stumbled upon the right article. This week, we’re giving you the basics on how to wire-wrap gemstone pendants.


Gather your materials.



How to Wire Wrap Gemstone Pendants | Nile Corp


There are so many crystals or semi-precious stones that you can find online or from a local source. They come in different cuts; you can either go with the raw ones or the polished or tumbled stones. But the best ones to work with, especially for beginners, are the double terminated pendants.


How to Wire Wrap Gemstone Pendants | Nile Corp


Once you’ve picked out the gemstone you’re going to work on, prepare a 20 or 22 gauge craft wire. Although you can opt for thicker ones if your stone is a bit large. These wires are available in brass, copper, or silver as well. You can purchase a roll from a hardware store or online.


How to Wire Wrap Gemstone Pendants | Nile Corp

As for the tools, you’ll need wire cutters and round-nose pliers.


Start making twists.



There are so many ways to wire wrap a pendant, but the twist-wrap technique is one of the simplest and easiest methods. Get two wires of the same length, about 25 to 30 cm. Twist the middle of the two wires together and do this about three to five times, depending on your preference.


Now pull the two bottom ends out to make a V. Lay the stone in the middle of the V then wrap the two ends at the bottom of the crystal until they cross. Twist the wires again about three to five times. You now should have two sets of twists, one on each side of the stone.


How to Wire Wrap Gemstone Pendants | Nile Corp

Separate the pairs of wires on each side then cross them over both on the front and back. Make three to five twists on the front, as well as the back side. Remember to push down the wires while twisting to secure the stone. You should now have four sets of twists.


Pull both pairs of wires back on each side and create another set of twists. This should be similar to the side sets at the bottom. There should now be six sets of twists; two on the bottom sides, one in the middle front, one in the middle back, and two on the upper sides of the crystal.


Be creative.

Of course, you can let your creative juices flow by adding some designs, like loops and swirls. You can even add more twist sets. Just keep in mind to always push the wires down, so the crystal remains secure.


Finishing off.



Once you’re done with the creative part and all four wire ends are at the top of the stone, create the bail. Make a double-wrapped loop then tweak the extra wire at the back side of the loop’s neck. Cut the wires and pinch them down at the back. Make sure that no sharp ends are protruding to avoid cutting yourself while wearing it.

Admire your masterpiece (and make some necessary changes).



Lastly, admire your gemstone pendant! Insert your chosen necklace chain or cord into the bail. Hang it on a necklace display to check if everything is aligned, or if you want to make some changes to the design. Crimp the wire if you think the crystal is a bit loose.
