(North Texas, USA)
Inspired by the artistic mannequin Carolina Gonzalez made, I made a version for myself.
I drew shapes and faces with pastels, cut the cardboard to match the figure, glued and added a kickstand in the back.
I also covered the backs with decorative paper to make the mannequin appealing from any side.
These are my favorites, but I have made eight in all.
(The brunette reminds me of Winona Ryder, and the blonde -Madonna. The sultry one seems to be a jazz singer, don’t you think?)
Making these cardboard mannequins was a lot of fun, I’m sure these girls will catch the eye of potential customers at my next craft show.
Thanks for a site full of ideas, Rena!
I Love These Gals!
When I saw these jewelry display Divas, I was totally surprised and amused! They’re great – and they all have so much personality!
You’re so right about these gals drawing attention to your booth. Things that are different, fun, and totally unexpected get noticed and remembered.
I’m sure they’ll be great conversation-starters with your customers, too!
What a clever adaptation of Carolina’s great idea.
I’m so glad you shared them here, Anna – and thank you very much for your kind words about this site.
These are fabulous!! How fun they are and certainly not your ordinary dispaly!! I just may have to try this for my next show!!
I LOVE these ladies…how fun!
How Cool !
These girls are beautiful – what a wonderful idea. This also shows off your other artistic talent besides your jewelry making talent, not to mention how much money you can save on necklace stands! Great job.
Thinking outside the box
What an awesome idea, & a great way to change you booth. I like to change my display with a different ways of arranging & show-casing my jewelry, but never thought of this idea. If you don’t mind, I’d like to maybe add some “divas” in the future. Thanks for sharing.
These are wonderful
I would instantly be drawn into your booth at a show. the handrawn displays are unique, eye catching and show great personality in the creator– you! How wonderfully different and an asset to showing your hand crafted wares.

I’m lovin’ these ladies. They are showing off their stuff! What a creative idea. Thanks for sharing!
I love these Divas so much that I made my own also. Thanks to both you, I now have my own Divas.
These are truly one of a kind. I sure would like to have one for my booth. Do you make them for customers?
I would like the top one with black hair and heart shaped lips.
They are so fun looking.
I can make you one, Monica. E-mail me
I was encouraged to make my own Divas after seeing yours. So far, I’ve only done two but they managed to emerge with a personality even if they are cardboard.
