Hey guys... you're all probably pros by now on how to creatively display your handicrafts. I make lots of jewelry and have "home trunk shows". I'd like to know if you had any ideas or tips on how to display jewelry. I am on a tight budget, since I am only 14, and I can't stand the thought of paying $10 for a plastic necklace display online. Thanks!

I have seen people sculpt body forms here out of tape and what not. Could you consider this coverd by something?

Also, I know we used to just cover plastic and cardboard boxes with orgami paper, wall paper, wrapping paper, whatever your style is in a store I worked in. You can lay them on top, hang them down (sometimes tape helps).

Fashion a clothesline type thing and hang them from that with clips or without.

Look for stores going out of business selling their displays.

This all depends on your style, what image you are conveying.

also clear fishing line is cheap and plentiful.

Can you make a wooden square, screw in some hooks (also pentiful and inexpensive) at the top and hang them from the hooks?

Rings could be on dowels, same with bracelets.

PVC tubes if you are modern, edgy or something...

Know anyone who works retail? Some companies offer displays for free with orders, ask them to snag you one.

A cool thing I have seen is taking a tree branch, mount it into a base, dust some glitter on and hang from the branches.

You can use household items, bowls, glasses, frames, anything.

Just a few more thoughts.

yeah, what i've done in the past was to take a wine glass, stuff it with tissue paper, then hang chandelier or long chain earrings down from it. thanks for the other ideas, i'll be sure to give them a try!

you can display anything stiff (bracelets, hair sticks etc) in a box of rice

If you know someone who has one of those belt hangers with a bunch of hooks they work well for necklaces, bracelets & anklets

I always like to see jewellery displayed on black velvet - it shows well.

Seen in a high end jewellery shop in Montreal ... clear acrylic box (no lid) sitting on it's side (open side to the back)  - about 14" x 14" ... a select few necklaces hanging from the roof of the cube (they used suction cup hooks) ... black fabric cut to fit / covering the open side of the box. They had tiny flood lights inside pointing up at the jewellery. Very effective display - everything in it looked lovely.

Go to the thrift store and pick up a few pairs of those 'evening' gloves, you know the ones that go up to your elbow. Stuff them with newspaper, secure with an elastic band and fluff up the end to hide it,display your rings and bracelets! You can even form the hand part to be holding something if you put wire or pipecleaners in the fingers. Saw this with one glove holding a rose and one holding a wine glass. It was very effective and romantic (it was near Valentine's day) They were hot pink gloves on black velvet cloth. I've also seen them standing upright with the fingers splayed and necklaces hanging on each finger. If you can't find gloves, I think I have a few pair kicking around. Let me know, d
