Oooh, I can gradually feel the pace beginning to slow and I couldn't welcome it more! This has been a whirl wind of a month, that is for sure! I am eternally grateful that my "day job" shuts down from 12/24 through 1/4. A much needed break!
So, why have I been so busy you ask? Well, I had my very first jewelry show on Dec 10th. A small scale show set up in the banquet room at a restaurant sponsored by a local women's networking group, my table top is shown in the photo. Then 4 days later I did another show, at the design firm I used to work for! Aside from the shows, my sales on Etsy went off the charts! Nothing to complain about, but a lot to keep up with in addition to my standard holiday madness!
So for my fellow jewelry makers, I wanted to share a display tip. I created a fancy little board for hanging earrings, as you can see in my picture. To create for one for your own booth displays is easy! All you need is a picture frame, a colored backing board, a sheet of screen and some spacer sticks. You can get spacer sticks at your local frame shop (Aaron Brothers or Michaels too) simply cut them into lengths equal to the sides of your frame. Stick them to your backing board and wrap the screen tightly around and securely tape down the backside. Then just pop it into your frame and tada! you have a unique and stylish earring board. The screen is easy to put earrings in to and easy to arrange however you like! For a table top set up I used an iron easel (you can find these at TJ Maxx, Homegoods or Michaels). Happy decorating! And happy selling!
