I make decorative wooden brooches. I also sometimes take custom orders for designs.
By day, I work in an auditing firm. Growing up, I wanted to pursue arts but my parents insisted I take up something more stable. But the job's boring so I've been spending most nights messing around with handcrafting. Turns out, I can make pretty brooches that I've mostly been giving away as birthday gifts.
How I Plan To Go Forth
Because my family and friends have been encouraging me to, I recently started selling my brooches as a side-business. I could do with some funds to set up an online store, as well as to buy better materials to improve my wares.
