Displaying your jewellery for sale

Our latest crop of Diploma in Creative Jewellery graduates have their final exhibition coming up on 23 April and as always we look forward to seeing both their jewellery collections and how they display them.

It the past we’ve seen clever use of plastic tubs under fabric to create different levels, handmade display shelves, mini spotlights, branches and leaves and even ceramics used.

In general finding ways to show off your jewellery without your stall or shop “furniture” distracting from your jewellery is a challenge but people are always coming up with new ideas. Below are some quirky ideas to inspire you next time you sell at a craft market.

This earring display by Virtualli is one that got us talking in the LJS office. We want to know if it is possible to fold the umbrella down with the jewellery attached and wrap it in plastic for easy set up and strip down of your stall.
