I truly think your idea for kits is phenominal! :) Btw the butterfly is stunning.

Here are a pair of earrings you've given me the skills to make. They are for my wife's secret santa at her work, the girl is an aerial hoop artist. The hoops are the outside of UK 2p coins, and the dancers are 50p coins hammered out to make them larger, all silver soldered together.

How much is the kit?

I never got far enough into it to get a final price. I would guess about $15 if it would have been mass produced.

I think you should win.

Yours is the idea with the most obvious consumer base (everyone who's ever commented on your instructables ever), and, i think, the idea most likely to turn into a successful business.

Also, you're a constant inspiration to aspiring and established metalworkers everywhere. I know more than a few of my projects included some of your ideas.

I would like to see you do all this.

You kind of encompass what I think "Craft" is all about.

I'm rooting for you, if you had a website I would go to it for inspiration and ideas.

Anything I can do to help. I've made a ton of your bullet pins to hand out to curry favor at work with visiting admins and what not. Wore one of the job interview i promoted into. Was nice.

Want to see what you can do with a garage!
