  • How to transport/carry your jewellery?

    The title of this thread is hopeless but what I am trying to say is that I want to take my jewellery to work to (hopefully) sell some bits to colleagues. I have done this before and I have some nice large pink and purple boxes from Ikea that I put it in but when you open it up its all messy and tangled up. Same with earrings - they are just all cluttered together. It doesnt look terribly professional. Any tips? Thanks!

    Do you mean that you put them all together in one box? If so, just bag your items individually in grip seal bags before you put them in the box.

      Bags

      Alternatively you could put your jewellery in organza bags or jewellery boxes.

        Transporting/Storing Jewellery

        I both transport and store my jewellery in ziplock bags as it stops the mess and keeps the metal findings and beads from tarnishing

        Mind you at the end of the 'show and tell' or craft fair it all gets thrown into the carrying box until I get home

          do you think that looks professional enough? At least it would be more organised!

            Why not put them all in separate jewellery boxes inside your big box and just take the lids off.

              Hi lbought some plastic storage boxes from Hobbycraft 4 days ago only £2.50 and they seal when the lid is shut even when upside down with 24 sections in..l'm using them for loose bead etc but they would make good display boxes and keep everything tidy
              The dividers pull out to if you had bigger items
              Spice tins make good storage/display too they are usually metal with a glass lid so you can see whats in them

                I don't know if this will help you at all but I hang necklaces on a coat hanger, they don't get tangled too much and you could just prop this in the box as well then when you pick it up, they are already a-dangling ready for people to ooh and ahh at them!

                  The ziplock bags are purely for transport and storage. Everything gets taken out and displayed which takes time but there are no tangles and no tarnishing.

                    You can get some velvet roll on ''pockets'', sorry no idea what they are called. Basically you attach your jewellery inside and roll the thing up. Surely someone somewhere knows what I mean

                        If you want to keep costs down empty containers from take-aways are very handy!

                          Think I know the problem. You want the pieces to be boxed so when you take the lid off they sit there in the perfect position, yes
                          The only way I have ever done this (and ive tried everything) is to cut a piece of bubblewrap to the exact size of the box and thick enough to hold the piece in place, burst a few bubbles if there is too much pressure in certain areas, when you take the lid off quickly slip the bubblewrap off and the piece should be in almost perfect position. the only problem is keeping the lid on during transport, a rubber band solves this but does not look that great.
                          hope that helps

                            I use plastic boxes with compartments - easily available from Homebase etc. Normally used for keeping screws and other DIY stuff. They are easily stackable inside a larger plastic box to be carried around and the jewellery does not get tangled up. If you do not have too much space to actually arrange a display then just open the boxes on a table and each piece is separate within its own compartment and looks tidier than in plastic bags.

                              thanks for all the tips. ill def be giving a few a go.

                              My issue is that I dont want to spend ages setting it up - I am at work after all! I have so much stuff - maybe i should just take a small selection so that its easier to keep it neat.
