About Semicolon Craft and Forgeworks

Hello All and Welcome to our Patreon!

We're a very small business (ok, maybe just one person right now) making and creating hand made works, from blacksmithing to wood working, to jewelry working and more.

Crafting and making is in my blood. I've been crafting for the last 2 decades, blacksmithing for 2  years, my father was a woodworker and carpenter for many years, my grandfather was  an animator and illustrator, my grandmother was a sculptor, the list goes on.

Even in my career as a pastry chef, I needed to be hands on and creating.

So I've decided to take the terrifying plunge and try to mask this into an actual career! *Internal screaming*

Why Patreon?

The downside of things like this is that it can be rather inconsistent. I don't pull a paycheck from this and I shudder to think how many hours are spent on this a week. There are a variety of costs involved with all these crafts, especially when you're creating a brand new piece that you don't have the materials already for. Sales can fluctuate, it happens. Patreon can help even out those inconsistencies and just help take some of the huge stress off, which is appreciated beyond words can express.

How Does This Help?

100% of the Patreon money will be going into expenses. It's currently $100/month to use the space that I do all my crafting in, good steel can get expensive, silver is the cheapest it's been in a while, but it's still pricey, propane for the forges adds up quick, renting space for going to different markets can be costly, and the list goes on. When we're forge-welding, a not uncommon thing and a requirement for Damascus, we can go through 2 full tanks of propane easy.

Patreon just makes everything run a bit smoother, especially in the early stages where we're working on getting everything up and running. 

Thank You

No, seriously, thank you all from the bottom of my heart. The fact that you've even taken the time to read this and consider helping this whole crazy train keep rolling means the world to me. I can't express my gratitude.

P.S.: If you read this far and want to know where we got the name from, look up Project Semicolon https://projectsemicolon.com/ We will be donating 5% of all proffits to them. I know it's not what you came here for, and it's a little PSA, but don't forget to check on people. You;d be surprised how much a simple thing can matter ;
