Sneak Peek: Packaging

Friday April 6th, 2012, 2 years, 7 months and 3 weeks ago

I hope you’re all having a nice, relaxing Easter weekend. It’s a windy ol’ Good Friday ’round these parts; I pity anyone attempting a picnic! A quiet day at home for me. I’ve been working on my jewellery packaging (as you can see from the pics) & now I’m done with that for now, it’s time to go & bake some cinnamon scrolls with pecans & cranberries (in lieu of hot cross buns – vegan ones are tricky to come by) & perhaps get in a little sofa time & watch some DVDs. I’ve been thinking of re-watching Atonement because I saw another Ian McEwan adaptation on the teev the other day, Enduring Love, which I really enjoyed. The beginning was so haunting, it’s still stuck in my head! Has anyone seen it? I do love Atonement, but you’ve got to be in a buoyant mood because it’s so terribly sad!

Anyway, here are some sneak peeks at my jewellery packaging. I’m rather happy with it! I’ve posted so many photos because none of them really do these enticing little boxes justice – there’s something very tactile & pick-up-able about them. The designs are influenced a little by vintage matchboxes & mid-20th century Chinese apothecary labels, as well as 1930s-40s beauty products. The boxes have a genuinely vintage look, in part due to my paper choice, which is made to emulate old, faded butcher paper. It has a lovely sheen & feel. For once, I could make my designs unashamedly girly because the products are solely for we gals. Sorry chaps, I might do some tiepins & cufflinks in future!

      Thank you Megan! There’s always that little bit of anxiety that creeps in when I’m set to release something new, so I really appreciate the positive feedback!

      Most of the boxes are readily available, you should be able to search for them on Etsy. The tins I buy here in Australia, but I imagine they’re available in the US too. I do it all myself in terms of designing, printing & labelling, but you might be able to find someone to do that for you!

      Thank you Noar! I don’t know how everyone else does it, but I stare into space, drink tea, make lots of scribbles, think & fuss too much, procrastinate, & finally, pull something together at the end. :P
