i really need some new jewelry displays.
i have the flat wooden boxes with the velvet insert so i really need something that stands up.

i don't have a lot of money so i really need them to be cheap.

i have no room in my apartment so i would prefer to buy something ready made. (anywhere but rio grande please)

thank you!

I just participated in my first craft sale today and I was having the same problem until, I figured out the solution, I have a big glass case for part of my display and standing display made from an old cabnet, But the one the worked the best was the one I made. I used 2 Bullet Boards and Hinged them together so that would stand on their own. and they worked great. The picture will probably explain it better than my own words lol.

Many times, neccessity is the mother of invention. I have made many of my own displays, just because new, prefab displays are EXPENSIVE!

I made this display with foam core board, spray glue, and great cheap fabric O got at a thrift store. http://public.fotki.com/Darcicles/all-my-work/photocraft/013108002.html

I made this display using an old junk frame, foam core board, and velveteen fabric, again purchased at a thrift store for pennies. I also glued the samples directly to the display, for traveling ease, but most people won't do that...lol. http://public.fotki.com/Darcicles/all-my-work/photocraft/021508b001.html

The pendant rack in this photo was made with 1/2" pvc pipe, connectors, and scrap wood I purchased from Home Depot. I have a hole cutter, so I just glued in a pvc connector after drilling the hole. It can be arranged in many different configuations to adapt to whatever space I have to sell for the day. The whole thing breaks down into four 3 ft sections, and the bases pop right off. I use heavy duty clamps to keep them in place, over the table covering. http://public.fotki.com/Darcicles/business/shows/092307011.html

The angel pin board is just more scrap wood, sheet batting, pretty, silvery scrap material, and those funny looking but strong paper clips, held on with decorative upolstery tacks.

I have used pringles and coffee cans, cigar boxes, and many other things to make displays. refurbished large, old picture frames can make a myriad of displays. A little fiberglass or metal screening can be added, and you have an instant earring display! If you want to leave your jewelry on the display, I recommend buying rubber earnuts, and attach them to the back. It's harder for the earrings to fall off or worse, get stolen. I keep old bed spreads in the back on my van to cover displays that the jewelry remains on.

I like glasses or silver containers..just seems to look clean,nice and its really super cheap since you can buy glasses at any thrift store or second hand store..with the glasses-you can draped necklaces  with the pendant over the side or hang earrings..

anywho,good luck on your search..

  I have used mug racks, (the standing kind) to display hanging items.  You know the mug racks that look like a tree? If you have table space it works nicely. I picked mine up cheap at the grocery store.   Good Luck!
