About this design:

Hello all you fabulous LB beaders! Looking for some good advice from any of you talented girls! ^^ As I mentioned in my last post (if any of you happened to read) I am rigorously preparing for an outdoor event that I have the extreme privilege to be having my own table! (Along with my very talented mother in law)

So here is another piece I will be selling, it started out as me just playing around with some Lucite flowers and then it turned into a pendant which made its way to a necklace. So I'm gonna be posting a few more of my hard work in the next few days since I only have until Saturday to make as much as I can!

Does anyone live around Philly Pa? Would love for anyone to come out on Saturday! Also, anyone have any tips for me on my first time selling my own jewelry? I'm still figuring out what to do about displays...

I was thinking of taking some branches off my tree and spray painting them silver to stick in some foam board and drape velvet over to hang necklaces and earrings. But i don't know what to do about displaying rings and bracelets? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!
: )

Components:

Different sized Lucite flowers, the bead caps were made from cutting up some filigree wraps and folding them, a few czech pearls and pearl chips, bronze box chain and findings, a bronze flower link, two purple czech bellflowers and some bright orange sari silk : )

    I really love the layered look of your pendant, Jet. Great textures and love the stamen dangles.

    Thrift stores can be a great place to look for ways to display your jewelry. One idea for hanging earrings; use wire CD racks and attach it to a Lazy Susan. Fill the inside of the rack with silk flowers/leaves and Voila! an instant rotating display.
    There is a Display category here in the Gallery. Check it out for some ideas that others have used. Good luck this weekend! :-)

    Love it, it’ll sell for sure. For bracelets, one time I used paint rollers covered with cloth napkins, tucked in the ends and wrapped my bracelets around them. Worked great!! Have you checked out the displays on L B. Good luck with your market, you will have a great time, I’m sure!!

    Oh I knew you guys would have some good ideas for me! JC- I LOVE your paint roller idea for bracelets! I will be using that for sure! I have a lot of fabric pieces laying around from when my MIL worked at a drapery company, so I think ill use that to cover the rollers. Awesome!

    Mary, your CD rack-rotating display is a great idea! I love thrift shopping so looks like I will definitely be hitting up the local shop! Thanks for the great tip!

    And thanks for mentioning the ‘display’ section on here, guess I should have found it myself but I did check It out and there were some great inspirational setups there. Thanks everyone!
