Welcome to two carrots studio.
After hearing a lot of ‘I love your bracelet!’ and ‘Where can I get one of those?’ and ‘Will you make me something?’ I have taken the plunge and will be working at this venture as more than a hobby.
The past weeks have been a blur of logo creation, business card and packaging design, Etsy and Facebook and Blog page creation, business plan writing, tool and material ordering and maybe a little bit of sketching too.
I have a one year plan in place, with plans to sell at a show or two next holiday season, and will spend the time leading up to it working on developing my skills. Practice makes perfect, right?
This will be a personal and artistic challenge for me, as I really enjoy making individual pieces and have never made the same piece twice! To sell at a show, or on a site though, I will need to have some production pieces. I have been developing some simple production designs; my task now is to translate them into metal.
As always, I have about a dozen projects on the workbench and will continue to take on special pieces as I go.
To my family, friends, teachers and classmates that have encouraged me along the way – thank you.
