As I am writing this post I have exactly 10 days and counting until my art show debut...oh my. Most of the jewelry is prepped and done (whew!), and now I am onto hashing out how to display everything. I am the only artist on display (which is amazing and nerve-wracking too!), which means I have to dominate the space that is given to me. I am going with the vintage/rustic/weathered/wabi-sabi look, since most of my pieces have some portion that is either leather, reclaimed metals, natural stones/fibers or hammered silver. It's kind of natural meets vintage.
Above is how I am planning to display my earrings. I have a set of vintage frames that I have glued recycled burlap to (that burlap used to be a bag of rice) and I am sticking the earrings into the fabric. So far...LOVE it.
I found this little lion beauty on one of my thrifting sprees. So love that the lion is holding a metal hoop, since a lot of my pieces incorporate this shape.
My necklaces will be hung and draped and dangled off of branched. Hopefully giving some much needed height to my display.
Lastly I just wanted to share the mirror that I will be bringing along to ensure my customers can see what they are trying on. A mirror is a much needed display piece that I almost forgot. It too shall give me some much needed volume to the display.
So, that's where I am on all of this. Mostly just sweating and hemming and hawing over all of the details. So very many details!
More sneak peaks to come!
