Auction volunteers looking for creative ways to display jewelry in the silent auction will appreciate this approach.
Most often I see necklaces draped over a box. Sometimes it’s the same box the piece will be packaged inside when sent home later with the winning bidder.
Boxes work well enough, but I recently spotted a couple of other silent auction display ideas you could use.
Anyone who has heard me speak knows that my background was working in corporate marketing and sales. I’m always pulling concepts from that realm into the auction. This latest inspiration is no exception.
Look at the photos using the vase and shell, which I cut out of my latest Wisteria catalog.
If you check with your volunteers, surely one has a large scallop shell at their home. A scallop shell can be used to elegantly frame a necklace or bracelet.
Similarly I’d bet that a conch shell would also be an attractive display. You could use the nubby / pointy parts of the shell to elevate a ring or other piece.
And who doesn’t have a nice vase sitting at home?
With a bit of tape to secure the necklace, a vase could serve as a beautiful way to set off a pretty strand of pearls, stones, or glittery diamonds.
