Exhibition News



Hmm, drainpipe! What on earth has that got to do with a jewellery exhibition I hear you ask? LOL Yesterday my long suffering husband chopped up a couple of lengths of black plastic drainpipe into a variety of sizes as the bases of my little jewellery display podiums! Each stand will have a piece of oval mountboard attached, painted red, black or white according to which is the best colour for the jewellery piece to be displayed against, and they will stand on the glass shelves of the display unit. I had originally thought to use ruffled fabric over the display stands but have decided I need a minimal approach and the fabric would make the lower shelves of the display quite dark. I have 54 of these babies to make up over the next week which is why I've started now!! Back to the studio....

hey Maz! How exciting. You're going to be busy. Definately agree about the minimal thing. I've found my jewellery sells best in galleries where it's behind glass,, well lit on a white or glass background. we have a gallery where i work and we sometimes use drain pipes horizontal accross the wall to display bracelets and necklaces on - good luck!

What a fantastic idea. I think you're right about the minimal approach, you want people to focus on the lovely jewellery, not so much what it's sitting on. Now my mind is whirring away thinking of other ways to use drainpipe!
