Very pleased with with how the cyanotype jewelry is looking. Also have another new thing I'm trying and it is looking awesome too. I am ready to get back in business again. Well, I don't know if I'm actually ready, but I'm ready to be ready. Went a long time thinking I was done with jewelry and knowing all the reasons I should be (oversaturated market, mainly), but here we are.

1. finish developing my style in these new pieces. Get the hang of my new techniques. Earrings, pendants, necklaces. Find earring designs I won't get sick of making. Make sure I still want to do it this time next month.
2. See if people actually like them or not.
3. Work on fancy show-offy pieces
4. Plan product line(s). Price points.
5. Take over the world.

Right? Right.

Addendum because I just now read my notes y'all left: I love cyanotype on fabric but you have to use a special detergent on it or it'll fade to nothing in one wash. I worry that is too fussy for people in general. Will kick around the other ideas. For juried art festivals you have to have done everything from scratch more or less-- so I can't just buy a blank and resin stuff to it. I need to know how to make the thing. I don't really know how to make anything except jewelry and books. A cyanotype journal would be amazing, though. I may try that just because. Maybe buttons for knitters, etc? I have seen potters who offer them...I wonder if resin would go over well in that context or not? Food safe resin also a great idea...gonna think on that one....
