Da' Booth

Okay, fair warning... it was about 6am when I filmed this. I wasn't fully awake, but really, I couldn't be more excited to show you how the booth is coming together. Pay no attention to my whispers, I'm super excited on the inside!!

Your booth looks wonderful!! I LOVE the muslin boards you made with the frames drawn on them! All of your jewelry displays very nicely. I really do like the cards that your earrings are on. Maybe it is okay that they lay flat when they are in the display, because most people will be looking at them thru the top glass anyway...right? All of your jewelry you have made is beautiful. Have a great show!

I didn't think tomb stone until you said they looked like that when you get a bunch of them together. I loved the look. Maybe if they were just squared off at the top they would have the frame look that you used everywhere else. To make them stand do a little v cut out of the bottom and simply bend it up to support the top. Not sure how to explain that better.

Very sleek and professional looking. Nice job. I like the earring card idea and until you said it, I would have not thought they looked like grave stones. However your Dad sounds super funny!

Booth looks great Kerry. You've said there are glass inserts on top of each section. What if you had brightly painted frames with screening in place of the glass on top, cut your earring cards at the fold line, and threaded the earring hooks through the screen? I'm sure you or Ron could come up with a way to make the frames stand upright (or set in an easel stand). Also, for the cards that are in the display, what if you cut a strip of heavier cardstock and glued either end to the upper and lower back of the card to support it a bit?

looks great! Maybe you can just make the earring cards rectangular and avoid the gravestone look. If you trim 12x12 cardstock and divide it into 4 sections you can cut a slit in the bottoms to make a triangle that will stand up...They still might slump a bit though...

Love the booth! Fantastic job, it looks so good! I'm pretty sure you'll run out of stock before the end of the show:)

I like the earrings cards... just incorporate some bright colors in your design and I'm sure your dad will no longer see them as grave stones!

Best of luck in Chigago:) Have fun,

Patricia

Hi Kerry-
I like the earring cards--In the whole theme of your display-they do NOT look like headstones :)
I love the total concept!

Kerry your booth is going to look FABULOUS! Can't wait to see the pics from the show.

Your earring cards are great, they fit the theme of your hand drawn framed boards and do not look like gravestones! (your dad a teaser?)

I did a similar thing a few years ago and found that I had to use heavier cardboard and make them so they were basically an A frame with a base and a tab that lifted at the bottom that stopped the back section from collapsing.... hard to describe.

Best of luck, wish I could see your work in person!

Great Setup! I love the negative/positive space you've got going on, the black stainless framework is very minimalist, makes your work "POP". Good Luck at the show!
