I really like this brooch made by http://www.folksy.com/shops/twiggd and based on a drawing of a fox from their garden. Made from solid Scottish Sycamore Mrs Fox is drawn with a pyrography pen, hand cut and painted and then finished with a shiny melamine lacquer. Selling for £18!
More work on http://www.twiggd.com/ .
I would really like to investigate ways of making sturdier crafts and try making and selling some starting with smaller items such as badges, purses, decorations and seeing how it goes. I would need to figure out costs to materials and time spent on each item and get going. There are a few online creative communities such as etsy and folksy where makers/crafters/illustrators/artists buy make and sell their work, I need to investigate further.
