creative jewelry displays.

i have a few trunk shows coming up 
and want to display my jewelry 
in a beautiful, creative, 
artsy, bohemian way. 

at the moment, i have my jewelry 
in several gorgeous shops. 
some i merchandise myself, others 
are beautifully displayed 
by the expert boutique owners. 

i like this simple ceramic
paint palette to display earrings.

at home i display my jewelry
draped around the necks of buddhas, 
in beautifully decorated bowls 
and hanging from branches 
or birdcages.

the instructions 
to make this shadow box holder 
are here.

i love these pretty bowls.

for a trunk show, though, the jewelry needs to be tagged 
{i have a serious love/hate relationship with jewelry tags},
and displayed in such a way that it says 'touch me' 'try me on',
not 'just look, don't touch'. 

it's a fine balance.
artsy, but touchable. 

so, today, i'm collecting all sorts 
of cool things from around the house
to use for my la sirena trunk show this saturday.

some wooden cigar boxes, some bohemian linens, 
some cool blown glass vases from marshall's, one or two of my buddhas,
an old minolta camera and some oriental bowls and english dessert plates.

i'm so wishing i had this. 

or these beauties.

if anyone has any ideas or photos, i'd love to hear/see them.
