Well today was a first — I hung my jewelry on a wall. In the Sundre Library to be exact. The display area was started several years ago and has showcased some beautiful local art. As far as I know this is the first time jewelry has been front & centre.
It took me quite awhile to figure out how to display the pieces. Putting them on display busts didn’t seem like a good idea. I finally decided to put them into the same display cases I use for transporting pieces to and from a show. However, the cases are too large for one piece, but too small for two. What to do?
I eventually settled on one piece and one photo — since the pieces are laid flat, the photo of each one on a bust gives an idea of how it might look when it’s worn.
Well-known local landscape artist Virginia Wilson was there to help me set up the display. I was going to stagger the pieces on the wall but she suggested setting them at eye level in a straight line. Looks great, thanks Virginia!
