What I have done!

The lost wax silver casting I started posting on this site was "spun off" to its own blog at KautzCraft.com. I started a small business selling the silver jewelry I have been making with lost wax casting.

I am already retired so this is not a life sustaining income project. Unlike some hobby/small business, it is paying its own way and making a profit. I have sold a fairly large number of pieces and the rate of sales is increasing. That means I have to work harder. OMG! What have I done?

I just put up an e-commerce web store for this silver work and made two on-line sales within the first day. Also one custom design inquiry. It seems this could grow to whatever level I choose, All it takes is some promotion and, oh yeah, product.

The most rewarding part is that I am selling the things I make. Not something that some factory makes and dozens of other people are selling the exact same thing. All that does is create a price war and very limited profits. I know, I have been there too.

I am still involved with the other activities shown on this blog. I feel good switching interests. I do a lot of things just for my own entertainment and test of my abillity, but I realy like doing and making things that other people want to posses.
