Hey guys. Since Im just getting into Etsy and big retail, i was wondering how all of YOU package and display your jewelry to sell? I am wanting something professional looking. And I also need to know HOW to make the packaging Smiley I would possibly like to go a little less traditional than just putting earrings or whatever on a card and hanging them. If they were a card, id like them to be original Cheesy Possibly like these:

The last one i think is a bit more unique to other items such as cell phone charms and maybe findings youd get at Michaels?

LOVE to hear your opinions and how you go about it! Cheesy

Happy Crafting!

they're a jewellery supply company out of Santa Fe. They've got almost anything you could want, but I think it costs about $10 to get their catlogues.

I think you do have to register an account with them. I usually just do batch orders through an account the college has.

They charge for the catalogue because they're chiefly an industrial supplier. Also, I believe you get $10 off your first order.

you might want to check out their website. As I said, I mostly go through a college account so I've never dealt with the directly.

You can also check fire mountain gems, but I'm not sure if they sell packaging.

Every time I put earrings on a card, the thing that dangles off the earring flips around and hangs backwards.
(the dangly things are on jump rings which acts as a natural swivel, sort of, so the dangle is free to flutter in the breeze - this is desirable)
When a real human puts the earring on, it doesn't flip backwards.
My conclusion is that earring cards are working against me. LOL.
Does anyone have a suggestion besides cards (or good quality cards), to keep dangly earrings with their "show side" facing the viewer?!

This thread should go to the Crafty Business Discussion board.. You'll prob. get more advice there, too. Like cheap printers that can print them little cards for you.

For selling stuff online, if you are using bubble mailers to send stuff out, I think a box is better than a card/bag/etc, since it's functional and all... I've seen brown boxes (you can get those at Rio Grande) decoupaged and otherwise decorated to make them more professional-looking. Off the top of my head, check seller geelizzie on etsy. It's not as pretty, but it's better than having buyers tell you that their jewelry came apart in the mail  Undecided

Btw, the third link, she's on Craftster, too. I forgot her username, but if you check the polyclay board, you'll find her.

they're a jewellery supply company out of Santa Fe. They've got almost anything you could want, but I think it costs about $10 to get their catlogues.

You don't need a catalog to order, however - everything's right on the website. Including a free downloadable catalog.  Wink
