I’ve finally settled in, in fact I’ve gone off at a good pace. After returning home to the U.S. I have approached a couple of boutiques and I have been selling wholesale. I am working with old watch and clock pieces, I am very inspired by some local steampunk groups.
I am also very inspired as the clock ticks down on an Ebay auction… remember the budget, remember the budget….
Actually it’s been a good learning experience for me. I’ve never had to work so hard to make sure that my cost and margins were so tightly under control. I’ve also never worked in such a way, batches of jewelry to try to make sure I’m paying my self a reasonable hourly wage.
I also pay close attention to what else in the boutiques are selling, and I ask lots of questions. Shop owners are different, some will tell you too much and some have no desire to enlighten the potential competition.
Below are some of my new line, enjoy!
