Natural jewelry displays can be made easily from rocks, mineral specimens, tree branches, seashells, feathers, Spanish moss, discarded antlers, etc.
The elemental earthiness of these materials can make your booth very compelling.
For example, a silver bracelet is beautiful draped over a rugged crystal cluster – the contrast in materials and textures is very eye-catching.
Rocks and minerals of all sorts are a lovely complement to jewelry, especially if you use large, unusual, or colorful specimens.
I often place a few unusual natural gemstone chunks around my display, and they never fail to get people to stop and chat.
People often forget that their gemstones originated in a big chunk of rock!
See how Debbie Sosa uses a smooth stone she found in her travels as a display for rustic jewelry.
Next time you’re looking for something to give your booth an extra bit of appeal, peek into Nature and see what she has to offer.
