Back in December I made a display for some upcycled necklaces I made and planned on selling in my retail stores. After chatting it up with you guys online I found out we need to form a support group for those of us who struggle with retail displays. And after forming said support group we all must vow to share our ideas when we whip up a new display. Hence this blog post. So in the spirit of our newly found group of misfit display makers, here is another easy way to display your jewelry at shows or in stores.
I found this lamp at a garage sale over a year ago. I liked the combination of the milk glass and the wood allowed me the possibility to paint it into a little more updated version. But the best part of the lamp was the shade. Yes it’s urgly in it’s current state but have you ever browed Pinterest for vintage lamp shade ideas. It’s a rabbit hole of awesome I would highly recommend.
Of course I painted the lamp in Synergy, my favorite turquoise hue. I don’t know why Turq is my go-to display color? When I host paint demos I love to use turquoise because people stop in their tracks to come see what you are painting. People never react like that to black. Or beige. Or even gray. So based on those reactions I revert to turquoise for displays.
I peeled off the plastic, latex, hospital glove inspired cover on the shade.
(With all of the shade discussion this is starting to feel like a Real Housewives of Atlanta episode. The shade, the shade.)
I bought three sets of these Blue Hawk S hooks at Lowe’s for about $3 each.
I hung them on top of shade and then used the lower hook to hang the necklaces.
Okay, this is not the best picture but I just wanted to show how much light this display gives off. The more lighting you can add to your retail space the better. My pet peeve is when I go into a store and the lighting is terrible.
You can hang a bunch of pieces on a display like this. I think was able to hang 15 necklaces without it looking overcrowded.
Okay, can we just admire a few of my newest pieces?
Follow my Display board on Pinterest for more display ideas and I would love to see your favorite go-to display ideas!
