Random Jewelry Display Tips

When you want to create a good display for your jewelry, it is important to keep track of the ideas and concepts that you’ve used in order to keep up a consistently interesting display. However, when you’ve used too many jewelry display ideas, you start missing out on some of the basic tips and tricks to displaying jewelry. In order to attract customers to your display, here are a few random display tips to help you get back on track.


1. Don’t worry about repeating the same design over and over again. What matters is that your jewelry is different from time to time. Selling the same kind of jewelry all the time kills the interest of your loyal customers. Keep things interesting by featuring new jewelry from time to time.

2. Benefit from the occasions and special events. Don’t miss out on all the special occasions and events that come up during the year. Christmas, New Year, Halloween and Valentine’s Day are all very important occasions that can help boost your business. Use the occasion to market your products and use it to conceptualize your display. The more people will see that you’re inspired by the occasion, the more they’ll be attracted to your display. Be creative and use different kinds of decorations for each occasion. Remember, most of these occasions will happen again the next year so everything you buy to decorate your place is an investment and not an expense.

3. Don’t copy the display of others. Go around different expos and check out other bazaars. Learn from them. Be inspired by them and even talk to them to get more tips. You don’t have to copy to be creative. Instead, get some ideas from different booths and turn your display into something totally original. In marketing, this is called benchmarking. People don’t always have original ideas. Instead, they get inspiration from others to make their own ideas seem original.

4. Space vs. amount. Never forget space when you’re creating a jewelry display. This is very important because many people stack their jewelry into one booth at one time. This causes them to overcrowd their display and the whole booth loses its charm. Maintain a good amount of space between jewelry. This allows people to see each piece clearly and they won’t have a hard time finding the jewelry they want.

5. You don’t have to take hours just to conceptualize your booth. If someone invites you impromptu to sell at a good show, go for it and use the basic concepts to display your necklace, earrings or rings. If the trade show lasts long, you’ll still have a lot of time to make changes. Some sellers turn down selling opportunities because they can’t find a good jewelry display idea to fit the size of the booth. Whether the booth may be big or small, you should never refuse the chance to sell.

How to Make a Homemade Necklace Display in 7 Easy Steps

When it comes to jewelry, necklaces are pretty easy to sell to young adults. Almost everyone loves to wear a necklace. Some may wear it for sentimental purposes, others would gladly wear it to match their outfit. As a jewelry seller, you can use jewelry display stands to showcase different types of necklaces. However, if you want to save some money or change your display, you might want to go beyond the common practices of other jewelry sellers around town. Instead of buying the usual necklace displays, create your own homemade display for occasional use in special events.

Home-made Necklace Display


Before you start, prepare the things you need first – scissors, cord, hole punch, poster board, fabric, glue, printer and photocopier.

1. The first thing you need to do is get a template of a necklace display stand. These can usually be found online. The best thing about making your own necklace display is that you can control the colors of your display equipment. If you know how to use photoshop, you can easily change its color. But if not, print out the template on a colored piece of paper.

2. If you’re not satisfied with the size of the template you’ve printed, get a resize of it using a photocopier. Standard necklace displays have a size of about 10 inches. If you’re planning to display longer necklaces, you might want to consider the length of the display. Resize your display until you’ve gotten the appropriate measurements.

3. Next, use paste or glue to stick the template onto the poster board. Since poster boards are hard enough to stand alone, you can use this for lighter necklaces. However, if you have plans of displaying heavy jewelry like beaded and pearl necklaces, you can use cardboard instead. Gemstones are too heavy for cardboard, so you might want to look for a sturdier base material.

4. If you don’t like the color of your template, use fabric to cover the template. If you have a specific color in mind, this is your chance to change the color of your display. If you’re a little pickier with the look of your display, use velvet or leather for your display. Avoid using wet glue when you stick this onto the template. Wet glue causes the fabric to wrinkle. Instead, use stick glue to keep the fabric tight, but never wrinkle.

5. Wait for a few hours for the glue to dry.

6. Use a puncher to create two holes at the bottom corners. The template itself will guide you on where to punch the hole. Use any sharp object to fold the lines on the template. For ease, you can also use a knitting needle. If your template is glued to cardboard, flip the template over and draw the lines with paper knife for easy folding. Once you’ve gone through the lines in the template, fold it until it remains in its place.

7. Once the template has been folded, pierce a thread of cord into the holes to tie it up.

This should allow your necklace display to stand. Congratulations! You’ve made your own jewelry display!

More Unusual Jewelry Displays

Sometimes displaying your jewelry is the one way you can convince your customers to buy from you. As long as you have a good jewelry display, you can easily convince them to purchase that piece of jewelry that they want. Unfortunately, if you use the usual types of display equipment, your booth might turn out to look exactly like everyone else’s. Give your shop a different look by using these unusual display items.

1. Use lamps

Lamps aren’t just used for side tables and interior designing. They can give any booth the extra light it needs and the special display equipment to give your shop a boost. Some lamps are shaped especially to allow the handler to hold it easily around the body. You can use these handles as a way to display some bracelets or necklaces. This can also serve as earring display stand. For example, a white lamp will be able to showcase a colorful set of bangles. Not only do you get an unusual display, you also give your booth extra lighting for evening displays.

2. Hooks

Instead of using nails to hang necklaces and bracelets on boards or walls, use decorated hooks instead. Nails are pretty boring and they can easily tarnish along the way. Instead of risking your pretty, white walls by punching nails into them, use embellished hooks with a creative design. These can be bought in hardware stores and DIY shops. Some hooks are designed to look like flowers or butterflies. At least, you won’t have to worry about tarnished nails or boring walls. Besides, hooks with designs give your necklaces a decorative boost on your walls. If you have white or cream walls, you can get similar colored hooks to make it naturally blend with the background. When you hang the necklaces on the walls, they will stand out effortlessly.

3. Display cases

Photo frames are a really good way of displaying important art or photos. On a wall, they can be used to create aesthetics or give the room a different feel. Use these frames for your jewelry. Jewelry display cases like shadow box frames allow you to hang jewelry within them. Pick a frame that makes your jewelry stand out. For example, if you have light colored jewelry, choose a soft, but bold colored shadow box frame. Darker jewelry should be framed by light colors to give them a chance to stand out more. Many jewelry sellers use this trick to create a successful display for their pieces.

Tips to Displaying Jewelry in a Flea Market

Flea markets are a great place for people to sell their jewelry. It allows them to open their selection of jewelry to a whole new market. Since flea markets allow you to display your jewelry in an open area, it’ll be a great opportunity for you to sell. This means that you need to think of creative, but effective jewelry display to get people to come to your booth.

an effective jewelry display

Here are some ways you can display your jewelry during the event.

1. The seller should wear the jewelry


Your best bet at selling jewelry is to wear them yourself. Models are very helpful in selling clothes and fashion. If people like what they see on a person, they will buy it because it gives them an illusion of what to expect when they wear the jewelry themselves. If you really want to catch the attention of the customers in a flee market, get someone to wear the jewelry. If you don’t know any models, you can always wear them yourself. That way, you can personally tell the customer more about the jewelry and even give them tips on how to wear it.

2. Table top displays with glass lids


Displaying jewelry in a flee market can also be quite risky. Because there will be hundreds of people in the area, it might be a little hard to control who gets to handle which of your jewelry. If you use table top displays that have glass lids, you might be able to protect your display from any quick hands. This may be especially useful for shops with long tables for their booth. Since potential customers can see the jewelry from the outside, they won’t have to hold it just to see it. If they’re truly interested in the jewelry, only then can they take the jewelry from the box – with your assistance, of course.

3. Mannequins

On the other hand, wearing your own jewelry might not appeal to you and some of your customers. In this case, you might want to use mannequins instead. Mannequins are very useful in displaying clothes in a clothing store. This is the same for jewelry flee markets. Mannequins allow you to display your earrings and necklaces without really requiring a human body. You can also use mannequin heads, wrists or feet to separately display certain types of jewelry.

4. Shadow box frames

Photo frames successfully display pictures over a wall. If you want the same for your jewelry, you can use shadow box frames. Similar to photo frames, they allow you to display other things besides photos and flat art.

Tips in Packing Jewelry-Making Tools For Airplane Rides

Are you planning to take your entire collection and jewelry display somewhere far away that you have to ride an airplane? Do you have plans to take your tools with you as well? If you need to protect your tools when you travel for a few hours in a car, then you also have to keep your tools protected when you travel in an airplane. Now that the security in airports is tighter than ever, you have to keep your tools protected and at the same time make it convenient for checking.

Unfortunately, because you will be bringing some potentially dangerous tools, that means you cannot put them all in your hand-carry bag. Despite the fact that you may want to protect your tools by keeping it close to you, you need to have them checked in. This also means that your suitcase or bag will be due for hand inspection and x-ray machines. To save yourself some time, here are a few tips to packing jewelry tools for the airport.

1. Use transparent plastic


First of all, when you pack your supplies or tools, use transparent plastic to keep them all sorted out. Even if you want to keep your supplies in between clothes for extra protection, you need to place them at the top instead. If the guards ask to inspect your bag, you won’t want to dig into your bag just to show them your tools. Instead, keep the plastic at the top of the clothes so that they can easily see what you have.

2. Place all tools in one bag or location


Don’t scatter your things in your bag. The more you keep your supplies scattered, the easier it’ll be to lose something or misplace them in the future. Instead of placing them in different parts of your suitcase, keep them in one place only. If you have business cards, wrap them in a transparent plastic and tape them to your supplies. When the guards check your bag, they’ll see the business card and they won’t have to ask why you’re carrying the tools and metal supplies with some jewelry displays like necklace display stands.

3. Transparent photo boxes


If you really need to keep your supplies in a box, use those transparent plastic photo boxes with the snap-up cover. Not only will it be easy to keep your metal tools in one place, it’ll also allow the guards to see what’s inside the box. As a result, they won’t have to ask to open it up for checking.

Packing your current tools for regular travels can be a real hassle. If you travel a lot with your tools, buy another set especially for traveling. This way, if you lose anything while you’re on the road, you know you have another set available at home.

Tips When Shipping Jewelry-Making Tools

As a jewelry maker, you have to treasure the things you use to create your jewelry. Whether they may be hammers, pliers, tweezers, you need to keep them protected and safe so that you can continue to make your jewelry. However, when you travel to different places, it’s not just the jewelry or the jewelry display that you need to protect. You also need to keep your tools protected from any harm that might ruin its capacity to help you create jewelry.

Jewelry Tools

In protecting your jewelry-making tools, you need to ensure that they don’t spill, get crushed, dropped, bent, get wet or moist or even open accidentally. In shipping your tools, the most important thing that you have to protect is the jewelry making surface and the tools, so that they don’t shift during the travel. You also have to ensure that your tools don’t moist or they’ll end up being at risk of getting molds and tarnish. Protect your tools at all times and you won’t have to spend a lot of money in buying new tools.

Wrap jewelry and jewelry display in bubble wrap


Here are some tips to help you keep your tools safe without having to spend too much.

1. Don’t leave your metal tools in the open air. You can use old socks to cover them up. They can make thick covers for hammers, pliers and even your tweezers.

2. Instead of using old boxes to contain your supplies, you can also use plastic deli containers. These containers have snap on lids that will make it easy to store pliers, scissors, stamps, scribes and other smaller tools. They’ll also be transparent so if you need something, you can easily see it from outside.

3. Use bubble wrap to protect your jewelry, necklace display stands, earring holders and other jewelry display. First, you need to roll a few layers of bubble wrap for additional protection. Then wrap the tools inside and put them inside the deli container.

4. Do you still have those silica-gel packets that you usually get from packages of electronics, shoes and other products? Well, they can actually be pretty useful in protecting your tools. Take the packets and drop them inside the plastic bags and containers for your tools. They can help to prevent moisture when you travel.

5. To keep your tools and packaging intact, use those strapping tapes with filaments to keep the carton closed. Steel can be pretty heavy so if you leave them in an unsecured carton in a rocky ride, it can easily break the carton.

If you follow these simple tips, you can keep your tools intact and ready for use when you unpack.
