When I first started my jewelry business almost 2 years ago, I hated packaging my jewelry to ship out to customers. But as I started to think more about how awesome it is to receive something pretty that is obviously wrapped with care, I decided to put more effort in to the packaging process. I buy most of my supplies online from other Etsy suppliers. So when I get those rare, beautifully packaged parcels I just squeal with excitement!
Over time, I really came to love using natural and recycled papers in my packaging. A really pretty neutral base looks so lovely with an accent of something clean and bright. I love the orangey brown paper paired with pop-y colored washi tape that I buy from the international district in Seattle.
My favorite part of packing up my jewelry to be shipped out is doing all of the hand written bits. I write on all the packages by hand in super pretty fonts & I always add a sweet note on a handmade card. I put a lot of love into making my jewelry. And I am always thinking about how to please my customers and make them super excited to receive their packages. Here is a peek as to how your lovely package might look when you order a little something from my shop. I just got some new colors of washi tape and tissue paper in pinks and greens too, just to keep it spicy :)
ps, I am doing a big photo shoot tomorrow morning for some gorgeous new amethyst jewelry that will be in the shop next week. Whenever I post amethyst rings, they sell out within hours! I have a good stock going now so everyone has a chance to snatch up the prettiest things before they all sell out again!
