it's been a constant struggle for me- ESP with jewelry.  I love what you used for your earrings- what is it?  I hate the boring (and kind of ugly) plastic earring holders, and my jewelers and I are always trying to come up with ideas.
I'll take some pics, but my packaging is pretty simple: brightly colored tissue paper secured with an aunt beep sticker that has my url and then tied with a  pink bow (if needed).  Since I ship everything, its all about protection and padding.
I'm looking for:
1) super cute jewelry boxes (either a great color pink or a funky pattern)
2) a cheap customed embosser for my stationary
3) a cheap place for hangtags that are high quality and really modern and cute.

i used a piece of sparkley purple felt i have had a bunch of pieces left from making a halloween costume a few years ago --- and then printed a bunch of address labels off my computer with my logo on them and just cut the logo out and stuck it on - i want better packaging - but i am not selling enough items to afford the better stuff yet - so i wanted some feed back and pictures of what other small businesses were doing - and seeing if i was fairly normal?

as soon as my site is up and running, my packaging is going to be takeout boxes. not for bigger things though, just the smaller size things.
unless i'm ambitious enough to make a not so dorky looking bigger one.

I simply wrap up my jewelry in tissue paper and put it in an organza bag.  I can get the organza bags really cheaply at a packaging store near my house.  and i include a business card too.  I also make these felt flower kits, where it has the flower and all the pieces to wear the flower as a necklace, bracelet, belt, pin and barrette.  So, i package that in a clear notecard box with a double sided card that my friend designed, explaining how to switch up the parts.  I attach all the components to the card with wire.    Eventually, when i run out of the organza bags, i am going to start sending out my jewelry in black gift boxes with my company name (future momo) printed on ribbon.

It all depends on what and how much the person buys
