Never-ending Story



Rome wasn’t built in a day. It turns out that initiating the credit card process is not easily accomplished in a one day sitting. There were several videos to watch, interactions with an agent of the service, information forms to be assembled, both of the financial interactions with various banking facilities and those regarding acquiring customer identification, web page links and formatting some additional design elements for that. I had no idea how complicated it would be. So we continue learning the curve and pushing forward with completing the setup.

Hand in hand with that, we’re finishing up two of the last additions to the current posted lineup of jewelry products. The Steamray pendant and the Lace Dragon pendant. The latter is in the final stages of polishing and assembly there only remains the photography and upload thereof to the webpage. The Steamray pendant is awaiting burnishing and assembly too, to be followed with the photographs and upload of those.

We have our first official order. A customer request for the Steampunk Screwhead and Rivet ring.

Brutal Beginnings


Apologies for disappearing from our regularly scheduled weekly updates. We had an unexpected two and a half weeks of entirely dismantling our office and internet connection, moving all into the workshop area and then reassembling and arranging our office again. This was followed by eight days of illness among two of our staff, myself included. We can now return to the completion and opening of our business. Everything is now in place and ready for applying the card processing links to those products completed and photographed on our website. This should be initiated this coming Monday.

Following the card service links, we’ll return to the shop to continue and complete the remaining items shown as screen shots at this time. After the jewelry items are completed, that will be followed by adding a couple of toys, and a couple of office accessories, and we’ll make some selections of design items to be included as screenshots for now, prior to production, of items for the remaining folders displayed in our online catalog categories. As you well know, we have much to catch up on. Here’s keeping our fingers crossed that we’ll have no more unplanned and unexpected delays.
