This free tutorial on how to make necklace cards is very useful for necklace and earring jewelry display. This is an important necessity for anyone who sells jewelry.
Many jewelry artists don’t even think about making their own display cards or think it would be difficult. I have purchased pre-made jewelry cards and was recently very disappointed, so decided to make them myself.
Searching for DIY Necklace Cards and how to make them took some time so I have written this helpful tutorial on how to make a necklace holder, which can easily be used for earrings as well.
