How do you store your finished projects? Please leave your solutions in the comment box and I’ll share them.
As I look around my studio, I see earrings on cards and earrings on stands. I see necklaces stacked next to each other on the necklace jewelry stand. Necklaces hang from hooks on the side of my cabinet. I see a necklace on a neck display stand, stacks of bracelets and so much more. It’s a little overwhelming.
I think I am hyperventilating! Too much of everything takes my mind away from creating and leaves me wondering what to do with it all. How can I make more? Where would I put it and how can I rationalize buying more supplies for more jewelry making? Surely I’m not the only jewelry designer/artist with this problem?
I need a system for storing the finished pieces that are listed in my website store www.lindabrittdesign.com and on my etsy shop www.etsy.com/shop/lindabrittdesign. Focus! That’s what I need! And more sales!
My solution (at least for now) is to put the finished pieces in gift boxes and attach a photo to the outside. A rubber band holds it together just in case a gift box turns over in my plastic tub. It’s a good start and I don’t have to open each box every time I look for a certain piece. I’m keeping my newest or most favorite pieces out to remind me where I am in the learning curve of making jewelry. It is also nice to show my friends what I’m doing at the moment.
I’m calmer now. It must be time to start a new project!
