Alter Smoothfoam to make easy to transport jewelry displays. By Suzann Sladcik Wilson

One of the biggest challenges for jewelry makers is finding displays for our designs. When we do find something, it is often bulky, heavy, and expensive. Transporting these displays to various show can be cumbersome, to say the least! With this month’s challenge from Smoothfoam, you will learn how to create a display that is lightweight, easy on your wallet, and will make your creations stand out from the crowd.

By stacking the altered pieces of Smoothfoam, you can make a display tower for your jewelry.

Smoothfoam is easy to paint, so you can make your displays in the colors of your business, the colors of the season, or paint them neutral to use at any time. When dry, the pieces can be stacked to create a display tower.

Example of how to display your jewelry using the altered Smoothfoam pieces.

As you can see, the jewelry really pops when added to the display.

Earrings can be featured in a whole new way using Smoothfoam for your display.

A great feature of Smoothfoam over other display materials is the ability to insert earrings and pins right into the material. You will be finding all sorts of new ways to show off your designs.

With just these few pieces, you can set up your display differently at every event.

Another type of stacked display using the discs and blocks separately.

This variation give a more sophisticated and spread out look.

Spreading the Smoothfoam display out allows you to cover more table space.

Making your displays from Smoothfoam is easy, cost effective, and will save you the hassle of hauling all those unwieldy displays to your next show.
