Creative Ways You Can Display Jewellery at Markets

Jewellery making can be a hobby or a business, or both if you manage to create items you enjoy making and others love to buy. Starting out as a jewellery maker can be tough, as there aren’t all that many platforms to use as a launch pad. However, local flea markets, craft fairs and trade shows are the perfect place to display handcrafted items to a large variety of people in a short amount of time.

If you’re renting a stand somewhere in the near future, you’ll need to make the most of the little time you have – after all, every minute counts when you’re attempting to draw in customers and spread the word about your new business.

To make the most of your time at a flea market or craft fair you will need to grab the attention of passers-by. There are many ways in which you can do this, but with jewellery it’s best to be creative and original.

Today we’re going share 10 imaginative ways you can display your jewellery at markets and stand out from the crowd:

  • Antlers

Antlers can look rustic and organic or you can glam them up with a bit of spray paint and glitter. Whatever your style, you can make it work.

  • Manikins

Manikins come in all shapes and sizes and are ideal for showcasing jewellery as well as clothes. The ones with the material bodies are preferred for jewellery displays, as you can pierce earrings through.

  • Cake stands

Besides looking all delicate and pretty, cake stands are actually a really practical way to display and store jewellery. You can put cushions inside to keep earrings up right or simply let the customers rummage through. Remember though, no one likes having to untangle necklaces.

  • Empty picture frames

Empty pictures frames are a great DIY option, as they can be easily painted and done-up to look special. Try filling in the back with some material that matches your panache.

  • Pegboard

Ah, the practical pegboard – nothing really beats it in terms of ease, efficiently and cost. They don’t always look particularly creative though, so think of ways you can enhance its appearance. Stickers and stencils can work well.

  • Logs & twigs

If you really have no budget whatsoever, you can still make a stand work for you. Find organic, natural materials like twigs and logs and drape your items across and over them in a loving manner and you’ll soon realise just how easy and cheap it can be to think outside the box sometimes.

  • Paper fans

Paper fans are easy to make and simple to customise, and they also happen to make great displays for jewellery components and rings. Simply place your items along the creases and wait for interest to flock to your table!

  • Icing tips

OK, so icing tips that are all icky and over-used aren’t going to be the best way to represent your new business. However, most of them can scrub up well and look gorgeous holding a few rings – chances are everyone will think they’re designed specifically for jewellery anyway!

  • Ladders

A decorated ladder can act as a great focal point at market stalls and take up a lot less space than tables and life-size manikins. You can have one or a few side-by-side acting as shelves.

  • Towel rod & shower curtain rings

Household objects, such as towel rods, shower curtain rings, hangers and key holders, are all around you. Use your imagination to make things work for you.
