Open House

Dearest Jewelry Designers and Crafty Creative friends... I'm seeking a bit of advice and your opinions. 

I've just been approached about sharing my jewelry at an open house a good friend is having.  She has a home business as well, so rather than doing a "formal" party, she's going to host guests "Open House" style so people can come and go as their schedules allow. 

She knows I've primarily been working with custom orders and customers from all over the globe and so kindly offered to have me join her to introduce my jewelry to local friends.  I'm excited... have some butterflies and that's why I come to you.

My question is display related.  I have some "props" that I use in my photos and for my own hanging jewelry.  The party is indoors, so I don't have to worry about windy or rainy weather.  (thank goodness.)  If you could share a tip or two on what you find most important/helpful when displaying your pieces at home parties, craft shows, art fairs, etc. I would greatly appreciate it.  How do you display your wears?

It's my first go-round offering my jewelry on display for a live show... I can't wait.  I appreciate your feedback in advance!  You are the best!

Make your displays hands-friendly. People like to touch, feel and look without feeling intimidated by the way a piece is hung or laid out. Encourage them to try on. Have a hand mirror for them to view the item. Have nice lighting, so things aren't hard to see the colors. Light colored table covering are best, then pieces don't get "lost" in the display. That's just off the top of my head. Knock'em dead!
