My jewelry display featured in S&T Creations' hubpage!

A few weeks ago, my eSMArt teammate Teri of S&T Creations asked for some display ideas. I thought, well, mine is boring but I'll share it anyways. ;)

I was catching up on my blog reading when I saw that she had written a HubPage on jewelry displays and mine was on it! Woohoo! Read the hubpage article here.

My personal display for my jewelry is a large section of pegboard. My stepdad and I spray-painted it black. You could paint it white too, but I liked black because it seemed to make the jewelry stand out more. We also chose a matte finish so there wouldn't be any glare detracting from the jewelry.

After it was dry we hung it on my wall so I could get the goodies I've made out of the big tangle they were in. I purchased A LOT of pegboard hooks and starting hanging. I separated necklaces, bracelets, and earrings/rings. I then spaced the pegs so I could get maximum use out of the board. This is my own personal board so I didn't need them to be spaced out like for a show.

In the midst of hanging I realized there was not going to be nearly enough space for everything to have its own hook. I started combining sets: hanging the necklace, bracelets, and earrings on the same hook. I also put earrings in little zip bags because most of them wouldn't hang well on the pegboard hooks.

I like this display because it shows me everything I have at a glance. In the future, I'll be putting all the jewelry in zip bags to help prevent tarnish and keep them clean. })i({

How very efficient and organized of you. Very nice. And is that a new Dust Baby banner? Beautiful!

Coming up with display fixtures is a real challenge. Having the pegboard sounds like an efficient way for you to display your works.

Good luck, Barb & Ken, Magpiedreams

Good to see that someone in this crazy world is "somewhat" organized. Are we ever truly organized or just pretend that we are/ Good go girl!
