Since I am new to the wonderful world of selling the jewelry I make, I am low on “professional” supplies such as necklace displays that look like necks!
I tried the “draping over a rock” idea for awhile, and had some really great photos of some of my work, but I wanted something that more closely resembled a neck to demonstrate how well my necklaces hung.
Standing on my patio, looking around, my eye rested on an old gourd leftover from last October, nicely weathered and rustic-perfect for what I needed!
I have received many compliments on the idea, (and one funny “you must have great marketing skills if you can sell a necklace to a gourd!) so I thought I’d share this with you.
