A black velvet necklace display easel makes an awesome backdrop for large opalite pendants on black rubber cords. Opalite is a translucent milky glass with interesting color-change properties. (It’s also sometimes known as “sea opal glass”.)
When you put it against a dark background, it almost looks like it’s glowing – and it catches the eye of everyone who walks by your booth.
I often place a black necklace display board loaded with these simple opalite necklaces right at the front of my booth. People often do a double-take, and head directly over to get a closer look.
