Starting all over?
what an interesting question?
So how would I do just that?
with 45 yrs experience in designing, making and marketing my own
work direct to the public, I wouldnt need any of all that stuff you
describe. Just some 1/4in dia copper rod, a hammer, a 3rd hand ie a
vice, a hack saw, some engineers files, and a simple block of steel,
like a piece of railroad, and a 1in plumbers propane torch and gas
tank, some old pliers and some old battery acid. Withing a week Id
have forged up and finished say 50 bracelets for sale at a flea
market at $10.00 each. That would enable me to buy some sterling
silver rod, and I repeat the process sell then for 10 times as much.
Then Id get some more kit, like a belt sander/polisher to speed up
the shaping and finishing and removing cockups!.
Improve my display, and some more bits of steel to simplify the
bending up of the cuff type bracelets.
Sell you work every week, theres no substitue for reacting with your
customers. Someone will want something a little different, youll be
there next week with it made, having taken a deposit first, to cover
the metal cost.
Keep making keep selling every week, dont fabricate anything yet,
that can come later.
So go for it.
It can be done.
