“Set-up Design (Please HELP)”


Description from Luv2bead - Little Chick: I have a craft show early this May and I was wondering if you Chickies had any unique ideas of how to display my things. For Christmas I put some of my necklaces & bracelets on a Christmas tree. I was wondering if there is any way to display my things on flowers (not real) or natural things (rocks, twigs, etc). Any other ideas would be great! Thanks!

    Mmmmmmm … that’s a puzzler …. How about some pretty vases filled with spring flowers like lilacs, forsythia … you know, woody stems that could support some of your designs. Heavier things could be spilling out of an overturned vase, or hanging on the vase rims.

    Little Chick, you could display earrings by attaching them to fake flower petals, and sprinkle them on your display table among the vases like they’d fallen.

    Or, another idea, get one of those fake grass doormats and set your rocks and twigs on it like it was a lawn. You could lay out small garden tools (trowels, hand rakes etc…) and display your pieces over them and the rocks/twigs. Like you were digging a garden.

    I will. I love the idea of the vases & petals! I was also thinking about draping some of my necklaces over large gemstone rocks (that I collect) and then have those vases/flowers around them! (I only have 3 rocks that’d work)!

    Oh, another thing, with the lawn/garden idea you could sprinkle empty seed packets about, … or … attach some of your pieces to them (like the flower petal idea). If you don’t have empty seed packets I’m sure you could find pictures of some online and just print them out (use them as price tags even).

    CAS – You are on fire with ideas – and I love all of them – esp the flower seed packets as earring cards!!! Cute and eyecatching…My friend Colette suggested going to Home Depot (Lowes, ect) and getting those fake rocks that you use in the garden as edging to place necklaces, etc over…Not as heavy as real rocks…?

    Here’s another, for height for the lawn/garden idea attach a seed packet to a twig/branch/stake like a garden row marker, and hang pieces off of it.

    One more idea, how about using some of the curly willow type branches (you can get them at Michaels) set in a vase. The bends in the twigs should hold bracelets nicely.

    That’s another great idea! Thanks Happy Chick!

    Hey Little Chick, love your ideas for displaying your jewelry. I have used rocks I have collected and also pieces of driftwood to draped my pieces over.
    I’m still looking for that perfect “tree” to hang things on. I found it last week at an antique store but it was a display an they wouldn’t sell it!! AARGHH!

    It sounds like you have lots of creative ideas for displaying your “Jools”. You’ll do great.

    lol, that was rude of them! Lots of people liked the way I displayed my jewelry on a Christmas tree, but this is Spring, so I think I’ll do CAS’s flower idea! (and of course I’ll drape the jewelry over some of my pretty sparkly rocks)!
