Damon, kind of poked around on your flicker album. Hope you don't mind. Some very nice miniatures!
Do you set a table at the Blade Show? I usually don't miss the min-makers. Like to meet you sometime.
don't mind at all. thanks.
no im not able to afford a table/hotel/expenses/still have shopping$$$$$ for that show. id have to sell out of everything I have in stock, and thats a lot to hope for.
as a jeweler, the minis are a lot of fun to make. plus it uses up those scraps of the pricy materials. most of those were made for some "serious mini-knife collectors" but it turned out they were just jerking me around. at the local shows I set up at they work as good "eye catchers" but people tend to expect something that small should only cost $5-10
