Wearable Color Chart

Wearable color chart bracelet lets customers see the available crystal color range in person

I’ve picked up plenty of helpful tips since I started receiving Rena’s Newsletter so I thought it was time to share as well.

At a jewelry party this past week, I introduced a new crystal bangle bracelet and got an immediate custom order. It’s the subsequent discussion about color preferences that was the inspiration for this sample bracelet.

After a quick run to my local supplier the next day, I picked up one of every shade available for colored crystal cubes I would use and made a series of single-loop dangles on head pins. They were strung on a foot of memory wire with seed bead in between to space them to hang properly.

The end result was a color chart that I can wear to future jewelry parties to make it easier to finalize orders.

The crystal dangles would also be quick to remove and replace as color palettes change.

A particularly nice bonus – prospective buyers can try the bracelet on to decide which colors they’d like.

Color sample bracelet

What a great tip, Irene! I know that people can definitely choose colors much more easily when they can see actual samples of the item (compared to seeing a printed version of the item in a catalog or on a webpage).

I imagine this nifty little bracelet is going to be an effective tool for helping you close a lot more custom orders.

Thank you so much for sharing your excellent idea with us!

Fantastic idea- I have a hard time trying to explain ab and abx2 finishes on my crystals and how they are not always what they are labeled ( for example–Sawrovski Mocca abx2 is BLUE!!!)-this helps a whole bunch.
Thank you!! You will probably sell a few of them too:)
