Don't forget the packaging!


I was invited by a local art center to show some of my jewelry in their holiday sale.

WooHoo!

So I went in search for something appropriate to put my jewelry into. Not many boxes around the house, mostly Priority Mail.


I did find some old cigar boxes a friend gave me, and decided to put my larger necklaces in them..


Next stop, Hobby Lobby. I found some really colorful oval-shaped boxes that did nicely.

Jewelry, a poem, and a nice box.
What more could you want from a gift?

Sometimes people will get more excited about the packaging if it's done really well. Plus, why would you want to give someone a beautiful piece of jewelry in raggedy packaging. Love the cigar boxes.

It's too bad cigar boxes start out with cigars in them. I think there are far too few of them in the universe. What could be better than getting a gorgeous piece of jewelry in such a cool container?
