The small, velvet covered manufactured bracelet displays are too expensive for someone just getting started selling jewelry. This bracelet display idea can easily show 10-15 bracelets – depending on size.
2″ x 2′ PVC Pipe
Black Knit Fabric (T-Shirt material)
68″ Artist’s Wire (at least 16 gauge)
Small Crystal “plastic” Beads
Jewelry Wire (24 gauge)
To make the rod:
Using knit fabric, sew a tube to cover PVC pipe – tight fitting. Tuck fabric ends into pipe.
To make the holders (the legs):
(See close-up in Photo #3 above.) Cut Artist’s Wire in half. Center wire over PVC pipe and loop around twice. Twist ends to form vertical part of stand. The remaining wire you form into the base pedestal. Repeat for other holder (leg).
String crystal beads on jewelry wire; then wrap around vertical part of stand.
Place PVC rod through loops. Spread loops apart. Display your bracelets!
If you like this idea, I’d love to know! I’ll be using this display for the first time at the Boynton Beach, FL. Civic Center Craft Show on Sat., Jan. 22, 2011 – Noon-4 PM.
Bangles and Baubles (TM)
I live in the Caribean so I am for ways to show of my work to people especially at this time of year with the cruise ships coming here.
Thanks I think I’ll try your idea.
I’m forever trying to find bracelet displays for shows and for photo props. This is a great and inexpensive way to do it.
Thanks for tip.
similar to this
Love it! I made a similar one using a kids toy called “noodle” It’s light weight, foam-like and can be cut to any size and covered with any fabric. I found one at a yard sale but they’re sold in most stores as well. With that you can stick T-pins or other type pins to hold something else such as a matching piece of jewelry.
This is great! So simple, yet as effective and professional looking as the expensive ones. Also, by using T-shirt material instead of the felt, there will be less fluff to have to worry about. Thanks for sharing, Sarah.
Deanna, I also like your idea about using the noodle – perhaps one of the children’s might mysteriously disappear…
In my next show–Jan. 22–I will drape a beautiful scarf around the base of the legs to hide the bare metal “feet.” I’ll snap pics and send them in.
Glad you like it!
Love the Bracelets!
Hi Sara! I love the button bracelet on the display. Super cute.
Versatile bracelet display
Thank you for posting this, Sarah! I love the decorative legs you put on the display.
Lots of potential for versatility – you could make a grouping of a few of these with different heights and lengths – and even change the Tshirt fabric color for different seasons.
Great bracelet display idea!
