I'm going to have a stall at the Handmade Market Birmingham on the 23rd October (getting really exciting) with my friend Nicola http://www.folksy.com/shops/GewGaws . If you live in Birmingham, come and say hi to us. : )
Since this is the first time I have opportunity to sell (hopefully not only display, lol) my jewellery somewhere, I needed to find some displays. I wanted to have something really beautiful and unique, not simply some items made to display jewellery. So I got creative.
I found a lovely old (very ugly red) jewellery box with a lovely shape, which I was planning to paint gold with a crackled effect, but it didn't turn out the way I wanted it. Then I tried another method, I don't even waste time to explain it... didn't work, lol. I started to worry at that point, until today...
Inspiration came and managed to finish this particular box so nicely that I made an other box with the similar method too.
And the smaller one:
I also made some paper bags, I think they came out quite pretty.
Would you be happy to get your newly purchased jewellery in a pretty bag, or you don't mind if the bag is simple? Would really love to know what you all think.
Will make some more little ones for earrings, hopefully I'll find some more pretty paper tomorrow.
So here they are:
This is not all... (have been busy for some time now, maybe some of you noticed I'm a bit lost these days) I'll show off the rest after the event.
Any encouraging words are welcome for a first timer ; )
