You need to get these onto Amazon, or at least a web site with a merchant setup.

I wonder if selling on Amazon -- aka The [Bezos] Borg-- is a good idea. I've read of the increasing problems and hassles of selling on Amazon.
Maybe in the past (the distant past) it would have been a good, if not the best, way to go.

But from what I've seen of the craftsmen (and -women) who make stuff and then showcase it on the appropriate forum(s)-- e.g. the RPF, Reddit, specialty forums etc,-- word gets around pretty fast, and the artist/craftsman usually has no problem at all getting sales.
I know with absolutely certainty of one in particular who makes Middle Earth related art/collectibles who scorns the Borg, yet is inundated with customers.

Will these be available via your stand at various events, i.e. Asylum?

I've been selling books and toys on Amazon for about 10 years. I ship out a significant number of orders each day, like clockwork. It works well for me because I constantly have sales every day, and I consistently ship everything out every day, and that's how it's been since a few months into that first year.

Now if I only stocked a few items, and only got a sale every few days, it might not work; I would probably forget to check on the orders, be late in shipping them out, and get kicked off the web site.

The two significant problems: Other sellers modifying the photos and descriptions so that they no longer match what I have in stock, and buyers claiming that they never got the item in an attempt to scam a refund (tracking and diligent investigation through the post office is the only defense.)

If you are selling anything fragile or collectable, never send it to Amazon's warehouse for fulfillment. It's like having the Samsonite gorilla handle your merchandise.

Sweet! Those are really cool. Well done.

Perchance did the individual mentioning tiny jewels as lenses continue with that train of thought? (Haven't checked the whole thread, but it was mentioned page 1ish... I like the idea of semi-precious stones for lenses ^.^ sparrrrrklllyyyyyy)

That delicate forest flower,   
With scented breath and look so like a smile,   
Seems, as it issues from the shapeless mould,   
An emanation of the indwelling Life,   
A visible token of the upholding Love,   
That are the soul of this great universe.

Somewhere mid-thread somebody creative with a 1st-series ring used little dabs of enamel paint to fill in the lenses.

A gem dealer should be able to match the size as raw stones are measured with a micrometer, or look for a local Lapidary club.

Does this mean the first editions are now of a lesser value?  I don't mind, mine back from 2010/ 2011 is still in it's original packaging so qualifies as 'RARE!!!' on Ebay should I ever part with it (unlikely, you'd have to prise it from my cold dead hands... err, off my cold dead finger, err.... hang on...)

So will you plate it?  There are commercial hardware cast pieces made from tin (alloys) that are plated. If you look at my headphones project those "bells" you see may actually be some dort of tin alloy similar to pewter, and it's definitely plated in several layers, the outer one being nickel. If I'm thinking correctly, that is the same as the 5 cent US coin, which is nickel plated copper, hence copper would be the forst layer - and that would allow brass plating? Any metallurgists around?
