Your Jewelry Booth
Demonstrating in your jewelry booth is a good way to keep busy and interested looking. As you skilfully work customers may gather as nothing attracts attention as much as activity in your booth.
In fact, you may draw a crowd, especially if it is interesting to watch your jewelry making being done. After they have watched and asked questions, people will probably want to buy. This requires more than one person in the jewelry booth so that one can sell while the other demonstrates.
Some jewelry designs techniques cannot be shown how at a show due to safety hazards or length of time involved in certain phases of the production especially if you make your own beads, but there might be a portion of the process you can show in your jewelry booth, such as string or attaching clasps.
Another way to educate the public in the production of your jewelry is to display a series of photos or pictures on the techniques or stages of producing your jewelry design for viewing. This could also be a good way to explain the history behind the genre of your skill.
You should always wear one of your design pieces not only so customers can see how it looks when actually on a person but great advertising.
Have you ever been to a booth selling clothing or jewelry where the exhibitor isn't wearing any of his or hers products, it makes you wonder if maybe they are not proud enough of their work to wear it themselves.
You could even get some of the other exhibitors to wear your art around the show also, a great way to get free publicity or advertising—of course its only free if you get your work back from them.
Remember exhibitors are always willing to help each other out, maybe you could display some of their work in your booth as a prop, with a little card attached letting customers know which booth they could purchase your props from.
