Pictures of my table...
You'll notice that I don't have the typical black or cream displays. My own designs and work tend to be earthy and organic in feel, so I like to carry that theme over into my displays. As a result, most of my displays are handmade. The necklace easels are handmade, as have the earring displays (both the wooden rack and the earring frame), and the bracelet bar. I think I got just as many complements on the table designs and displays as I did on the jewelry itself! So that also was worth the added time it took to make those displays.
My earring cards and hang tags were also handmade. Again, none of the commercially available earring cards and tags seemed to call my name, so I decided to be a little bit thrifty and design my own. While some minor tweaking is needed, they work for now.
Since the timing of this event was still decidedly "fall" and "harvest", you'll notice that I have pumpkins and other various fall themed items about. I like incorporating seasonal material into my displays. It gives it a personalized feeling, and since jewelry is very personal, I think it works out nicely! Oh, and of course, one must have a welcoming bit of chocolate to draw people into a discussion with you!
And I do have to say that these really aren't the best pictures! I couldn't take a picture at this show to save my life, sorry to say. And they certainly don't show my jewelry to their best advantage either... ::sigh:: I will do better next time, I promise!
