I like to put my earrings on a card, and I use a clear cellophane type of bag to display them.
I needed something to display them on instead of laying them flat on a table. So I asked a neighbor to make me these shelves.
I told him what I wanted, how I wanted the earrings to sit on the shelf.
With the earrings in the cellophane, the wear and tear on them is cut down tremendously. Nothing gets scratched.
So I had a neighbor build me these earring display shelves out of oak – but I am sure you can use any type of wood. I like the oak as the stands are not heavy but strong enough that if you are doing an outdoor show, the stands or the earrings won’t blow off the table.
There is a small slot on the shelf where the earring packet sits, and the earring packet slips into the slot. Kind of like the idea of a plate holder. It keeps the earrings on the shelf.
They look great, shiny when people walk up to my booth. It’s the first thing they look at.
I have increased my earring sales by 25% by using these displays.
They have sides that just pull open from the back with a chain that holds the angle of the tilt.
At the end of a show, I just put all the earrings in a box, fold up the displays flat and they are very easy to transport.
I have not found anything bad about them at all. I had three of them made. It cost me $75.00 for all three.
Great earring display
I like to display earrings in baggies, too – especially at outdoor shows where dust, moisture, etc. can trash jewelry cards and tarnish metals.
This is such a great way to display your packaged pieces up off the tabletop and in a sturdy yet very attractive display.
And your 25% increase in earring sales speaks for the effectiveness of your display idea! Congrats on that!
Thank you for sharing this great display here, Kathleen. And kudos to your crafty neighbor for helping to make your idea a beautiful reality!
Earring Stand for displaying
The clear bags standing on the custom built stand is so neat looking!
this is such a great idea!
This is pretty, but people like to touch and hold up to their ear and this makes that difficult.
Does this seem to cause a problem for you?
The earrings display bags
No, it does not pose a problem. The bags are easy to open, and i encourage the customers to do that if they want to see what they look like.I have a mirror handy too. I open the celephane bag, and the earrings go back on the card and i can reseal it. Most of the time though, people buy without doing that. I have only had a few customers want to take them out of the celephane bag. I also have smaller bags, that I use for my less expensive earrings. I use plated wires and extra beads, and put the earrings in these clear bags, no card, and have them in a tin. These bags are really nice cause they make the jewelry ‘shine’ if that makes sense. They really make the jewelry look great no matter what you put in them. I sell those earrings for $5.00 each. Some people can wear plated wires. I can’t but for someone looking for a bargain, it increases your sales. $5.00 here…$5.00 there….
