Where I am with the Kreeters jewelry


Hi all, thank you for reading along.  I thought I would blog about my status with the Kreeters jewelry.   As things grow, I have had to learn to become more organized, and juggle the many hats one wears, when running a small business.  Time management is very important, because as you make time for the business things you have to do, something else always pops up.  Such as unexpected chores, and situations.

I have already started casting some of the the Kreeter jewelry, because I didn’t have time to make them all by hand.  Also, so I could do them in brass, and have a low price point.   I have also started having the eyes done with epoxy (and colored epoxy hair on some, hopefully I will get them on the website soon http://kreeters.com/kwpJ14.html). It was just too time consuming to put in eye stones on all of them.  Plus the epoxy looks bright, and really pops, especially on the Brass ones.

My next move on the Kreeters is to plate some of the Brass ones with Silver.  This way I can offer Silver ones, at a lower cost than the solid Sterling Silver ones. I will still offer the Sterling ones for those who want them.

I still make some by hand.  I refer to them as the Gallery Kreeters.  They are handcrafted using solid Sterling, and semiprecious stones.  They are also the thickest ones.  They are the ones I use, when I make them with stones in their hair.

Next I plan on making some wine markers, key chains (a few people have asked for them), large shelf pieces, and some garden Kreeters.  I have made garden kreeters in the past, but not for the public as of yet.

There is also some stained glass picture frames in the works.  These are just of the few ideas that I haven’t had the time for as of yet.  Which brings us back to better time management.

Thank you, Myron K Graves

About Myron K Graves

Two days after achieving my highest license in Steam Engineering, the plant I worked at closed down. Having worked shift work for many years, I decided to give, what was then a hobby, a go, for a change in my life. So I switched to the other side of my brain, and became a metalsmith artist full time. I had created the Kreeters a few years earlier. So I made them as my base. Because they are unique to me, and something no one else does (copyrighted, and "Kreeter" name is registered). They are a lot of fun, and I enjoy creating the shirt designs as well. They are fun characters which represent letting go of all the stress and negativity, and just enjoying life. I try to do the same. I say about the only time I am serious (outside of truly serious situations), is when I am making my one of a kind pieces. I love to create my hand made jewelry, and find it a real pleasure to see the reactions of people, who find a piece they really love, or that I have custom made for them. My work is distinct from most others. I like the art style, and try to evolve, and learn all the time. I like making nature pieces (frogs, spiders, snakes, turtles, dragonflies, butterflies, etc.). I have also started doing Filigree lately, and some more petite jewelry as well.
