What's the best way to ship small jewelry?

For those of you who are selling jewelery, how are you shipping your earrings and necklaces? I have checked some packaging sites and what they are charging to ship to me is half the cost of my order. I'm thinking maybe I am ordering the wrong type of boxes.

i sell scrabble tile necklaces.
i ship my necklaces in a sturdy jewelry box, in a bubble mailer. i know lots of jewelry sellers ship that way.
it depends on the cost of your items as well, as to whether you want to add things like insurance and all.

For earrings, I wrap them in bubble wrap and put them in a handmade pillow box (you can find templates on-line) and put that in a bubble envelope. I usually add 1 packing peanut to each end of the pillow box so that it can't be squished down onto the earrings.
For necklaces, some are packaged the same way, some go into hard jewelry boxes and then into an envelope and some I send in small mailing boxes. It depends on the type of necklace. Earrings weigh around 2 oz to send ($1.58 with d/c to ship via Paypal 1st class) and necklaces come in around 4 oz.
If you want actual small shipping boxes, Uline has the best prices but always click on their 'get a shipping quote' link before your order so you can figure that into the price of the boxes.
