One of the problems I have noticed at recent art shows is that of displaying bracelets so they are attractive as well as easy to grab so they can be tried on or looked at more closely.
I have been using the typical bracelet T bar display stands. They definitely make an attractive appearance but are a challenge to those wanting to try them on.
If the bracelet they are looking at is not close to the end of the bar, all prior pieces need to be removed. I also wonder how many times they get passed by because someone doesn’t want the hassle of fiddling with the display.
So I have been playing around with some new ideas of display to resolve this issue. My thoughts are to incorporate table props as new jewelry displays that are more user friendly. Here are four ideas I am thinking about.
The first idea is to use my table accent stones. I can lay some opened bracelets across a stone, which could be easy to pick up and try on.
The second idea is to place some of my lower priced bracelets into a bowl so they can be rummaged through. Not as attractive, since everything is jumbled together, but easy to get at and fun for those who like to rummage.
The third idea is using two bookend sculptures to place a few bracelets around.
The final idea is using a paper mache hand to drape a few bracelets from.
I would still use a few T bars, but put few bracelets onto them. I do have enough room on my table to add these new ideas, because most of my pieces such as necklaces, pendants and earrings hang from a display on the side walls of my tent.
