The jewelry I send is first placed into a gift box. This keeps pieces secure during mailing, and the item arrives ready to be given as a present - no additional wrapping required. I consider the dimensions of my handmade goods when deciding which size gift box will work best. A few more things to contemplate: Is there a particular item that is popular with buyers? Will I be selling custom orders? If so, I may need more of one specific size box than others. Estimate and plan for this. Rio Grande has a nice selection of jewelry packaging. Their gift boxes are available in a number of sizes or can be purchased in variety packs.
Once gift boxes are resolved, it is time to choose shipping materials. I do a fair amount of online shopping. This occasionally leaves me with bubble wrap and kraft wrap. If clean and like new, the wrap can be reused for my own shipping purposes. I simply store it away until needed.
