Tips for a Festive Jewelry Display | Nile Corp

Your Christmas inventory’s ready, but you haven’t come up yet with a display that would awe passersby. You can't just go with sparkles and glitters, as almost all of the stores would go for these. Simple Christmas decors would be dull and certainly not striking enough. If you still can’t decide on how to design your display, allow us to help you. Here are some tips for a festive jewelry display.


Color palette

It’s always safe to go with the traditional Christmas colors -- red, green, and gold. But don’t be afraid to be a little different. You can go with blue, white and black if you wish to go for an arctic look. Blue, purple, and gold are perfect for an enchanting fairytale-inspired palette. You can always choose a photo from Pinterest for inspiration, and that’s where you base the colors you plan to use. Just remember to stick to your selected colors so it won’t look messy or out of place.


Lights

A display with exceptionally beautiful lighting is guaranteed to awe anyone who sees it. Use warm lights to remind them of cozying up with a book by the fireplace. Warm lights give off a homey, festive feel. Focus the brighter lights on the jewelry pieces, especially the best selling ones. However, lighting still depends on your theme. If you’re going for a rustic, homey feel, warm lights are the way to go. If you prefer an enchanting, arctic feel, go with white and blue lights.


Christmas decorations

You can never go wrong with traditional Christmas decorations like wreaths, pine cones, and mistletoe. Sprinkle some fake snow on your necklace display, earring display, etc. If you have a lot of free time, you can DIY most of these decorations and customize it as you see fit. If you’re too busy to, you can always purchase ready-made decorations. Remember to get ones with the colors of your chosen palette.


Images on the walls

Put up photos or paintings that can appeal to the emotions of your customers. It’s always a good idea to connect with your customers emotionally. According to studies, we use emotions to help us decide what to buy. Hang photos of happy couples wearing your jewelry, or a wedding proposal photos. You can also target families, like a mother and daughter wearing matching pieces. All these, of course, should have a Christmas theme.

Tips for Setting Up a Jewelry Studio Workshop

Here are some tips on how to keep your studio a great place to work at.



Tips on how to make your studio great place to workout


Holding jewelry-making workshops is one way to brand your jewelry business and maximize exposure. It’s one of the strategies a startup business can do to make their business known in the local area. Also, studies have shown that beading classes have developmental benefits to children, which is great if you also plan to partner with a nonprofit organization or charity.


If you are a startup jewelry business in need of a jewelry-making studio for workshops, then you’re at the right place. Without further ado, here’s a list of some tips on how to set up a workshop studio.


Lighting



Make a perfect lighting.


Lighting is important, especially if you are going to work with small beads and intricate designs. But because most beads and other jewelry making materials are shiny and may be hard to the eyes, lighting should not be very bright. Natural light is the best one to use, so your workshop should have big windows where the sun rays can shine through. If you don’t have access to natural light or mostly hold workshops at night, you can install a combination of daylight and white light bulbs. This combination will allow you to see the actual colors, as opposed to using just one of the two.


Ventilation



Create a proper ventilation for your workout.


One cannot work in a place where there is no proper ventilation, especially if you are working with glue guns and do a lot of soldering. Some materials like acrylic paint and epoxy resin may be hazardous to lung health too. That said, you should install an exhaust fan which can suck out all the harmful fumes. Ducted hoods are also another option, which is the stronger version of the exhaust fan, as well as chemical air filters to clean the air.


Jewelry display



Create a space for your master pieces, example jewelry displays.


You should also have space where you can showcase your finished masterpieces for everyone to see and admire. A small desk is just fine, as long as it can accommodate a display set that includes a necklace display, earring display, and ring display. You can use this desk to place inspiration as well -- this could be a book, a photo, or even color palettes.


Chairs of varying heights



Always remember that chair with different heights is a necessity for creating a jewelry making shop.

Chairs of different heights are a necessity in a jewelry-making workshop. You should have separate chairs for soldering operations, for beading, and for painting. Having stools of just the same height might be uncomfortable to sit on in other activities. However, if you have the budget, you can also invest in slightly pricey adjustable chairs or stools. Do make sure that all the chairs that you’re going to use are sturdy to prevent any accidents from happening.


Music



Play a good music for relaxation and to set the mood.

Playing some feel good music is one of the many ways to set the mood. It can also spark creativity and inspiration for some. In fact, many known painters listened to music while working on their masterpieces. You can opt for some calming classical music; think Tchaikovsky, Bach, Mozart, and Chopin. Coffee shop music such as jazz and soul work well too. As for the volume, set it on just the right amount, as loud music can distract you instead of inspiring you.

What to Do With Excess Inventory

Convert your Halloween jewelry pieces to cash.


What to Do With Excess Inventory by Nile Corp

Halloween’s come and gone but not all your trick-or-treating inspired jewelry pieces have been sold. Are you going to keep them until next year or risk and try to sell them even when the Christmas spirit is already here? Yes, excess inventory can be a real pain for jewelry businesses, especially those who sell seasonal designs. However, you can cash in on these pieces. And without further ado, here are five ways to do that:


Redesign them.

Do you have pumpkin-designed earrings or rings? Turn them into festive snowmen pieces for your Christmas inventory! All you need are white, black, and orange acrylic paints. Paint the whole charm white, use the black paint for the eyes and mouth, and orange for the carrot nose. Take inspiration from the real pumpkin in the photo above by Chrissy of Adventures in DIY.


Sell them at discounted prices.

You can still try to sell them, but now at incredibly discounted prices. Some people prefer to buy seasonal items in advance, and others can get them as funny Christmas presents for their friends. These jewelry pieces may also appeal to those who collect jewelry with Halloween designs regardless of the season.


Remarket them.

Since some Halloween jewelry pieces have a Gothic style, you can remarket them as vintage Victorian or steampunk jewelry pieces. Take away the Halloween vibe; for example, you can place a black choker with a spider or cat pendant on a necklace display bust and decorate with some black lace to give it a Victorian look. You can also retain the skull and bat decors you used last Halloween.


Give them as freebies.

If you really want to get rid of these jewelry pieces, you can give them away as freebies to repeat and loyal customers. Offer them as exclusive incentives for buying two or more pieces from your shop, or for bringing other friends. You can also use social media to promote this exclusive offer.


Bundle them up with fast moving-pieces.

You can include a Halloween piece in a set of on-trend pieces. That way, you can still make money for it, even if it’s not sold at its original price. However, it would be best to redesign the jewelry first, so it doesn’t look off in the jewelry set.

In the future, make it a point to plan ahead. Do your research well before buying in bulk to prevent another case of excess inventory.
