Jewelry Display Props
Create displays which will help to sell your handcrafted jewelry. The attractiveness of your display needs to compel a customer to stop at your location. Your display needs to attract and hold the attention of customers.
Help display your jewelry according to their aesthetic value.
An attractive display helps potential customers to make a decision to buy. Solving the customers’ problems will sell more jewelry. Much effort and heart is given to creating a piece of jewelry; the same should be done when displaying your artwork.
For example, display pearl necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and ring in a setting of wedding apparel and accessories. The wedding props will help the customer to see if their pearl selection will be a perfect compliment to their wedding choices.
We are guilty of wanting to show off every creation which we have made. Showcase a few pieces at a time. Creating clutter with too many pieces will diminish the uniqueness of your creations. The customer will see a messy table and avoid stopping to see your jewelry display.
Showing less gives the customer a clear and detailed picture of whatever piece they are admiring. Customers will ask for other sizes or colors. Have your stock box nearby. Conversations with customers will open opportunities for more sales.
Indoor and Outdoor Displays
The indoor setup can be done with glass. Glass tops and counters, shelving and display cases may be used. Strategically placed mirrors offer luxury and the illusion of a larger space. More importantly, the customer can model their selection and the reflection in the mirror will be their feedback to buy or not.
Commercial retail stores have special display units or glass showcases to arrange their jewelry. These types of display cases may be considered for gold, silver, and gem jewelry.
Outdoor shows require articles that will not be affected by inclement weather, dust, and heat or cold. Use metal, plastic, and wood cases with locks to offer stability and security for your merchandise. Arrange your creations for fast removal in the event of sudden inclement weather.
The jewelry which you make will sell if it fits the needs and desires of the customer, quality workmanship, and a reasonable price. Your display plans support these three reasons to assist a customer to make a decision to purchase.

Try Belly Dancing - Sensual Essentials
Belly dancing may be considered sexy, sensual, or both. It is a matter of how a person defines these words. And the definition of these words is confusing. When you announce to your family and friends that you will be taking belly dancing lessons be prepared for an avalanche of criticisms. Know the difference between a person being sexy or being sensual.
Women who have come to appreciate this dance understand the sensuality and the spirituality of this art form. Yes, you can fit this dance into the bedroom to meet the definition of sexy and conclude with sex. But dancing for the general public as a professional is sensual.
Sexy usually refers to whatever may be appealing to another as it arouses basic sexual instincts and interests to be heightened or excited. However, sensuality has more to do with physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual sensations of our six senses without sex. It can be confusing at times as there may be some overlapping within these definitions.
Private belly dancing may incorporate belly dancing movements mixed with sexy suggestions for your mate in the bedroom. These movements would never be used in a public performance.
The public performance by a professional has her focus on creative choreography, steps and movements, facial emotions to help tell the story, and focused on hearing her music for cues. There will be some flirting in the dance, but no deliberate actions to create sex or to be sensual. To do so would be a comedy act.
During dress rehearsals the costume and the choreography are rehearsed. The costume and movements are reviewed for appropriate and correct usage in the choreography. A public performance is final and no one can erase any costume malfunctions or inappropriate movements which has been caught on cameras held by the audience.
Think about this for a moment. The dancer’s choreography includes a story line of a young girl living on a farm and she describes her chores with dance movements. For the audience to think that the dancer is being sexy would be cause for laughter considering the story line.
A dancer is performing with a live band and she and the drummer are having a contest interpreting the rhythms. She is using her body and hips to interpret the beats and the drummer is pounding his drum or drums with his fingertips trying to outdo the dancer. They and the audience are caught in the excitement of the percussion rhythms and having fun watching this duel.
How can a person think this is sex when the dancer is using her techniques, skills, and talents to creatively interpret the rhythms and the drummer is beating away on the skin of the drum? Neither of these performers is thinking sex. They are both preoccupied with a contest of wits.
