Early this morning I made this wire name that function as a table decoration. If you put it on your table, I am sure that your friends that comes near your table will be attracted to it and will ask you questions.
This wirename craft is unique and it's one of the 'niche' in craft business. If you are looking for a niche. You might want to consider this as your niche.
What is wirename niche? does it fall under the category of wires? category of crafts? or jewelery?
For me, it falls under the category of creative craft that uses wires. Same as wire beads.When I tried selling my wire name through ebay, I found out that so many people are selling wire name here.Some selling it cheaply, some selling it expensively.But, I see the potential for this niche market.
Simple economic theory : the supply and demand theory. If there's a supply, surely there are demands for the product because without demands, the supply will not strive. I can try to sell wirename keychain on ebay or any other place but if there's no enough WANTS for my product, I cannot profit.I need to be at least reach the breakeven level in order for me to continue my business in wire name niche industry.
Being a newbie in this niche market is exciting. I am thankful to those websites that help me to cut my learning curve by sharing their wirename pics online where I can see and learned by trying to bend wires according to the their pictures.
However, as I develop my skill as a part time wire name artist, I realized that as time passed, and as I practiced bending wire name, that I also develop my own way or style to bend wires into names. I also believe that anyone can learn to bend wires. As long as they practice and practice and try to bend wires for themselves. It not hard. It's doable.You just have to get your hands 'dirty' by doing it yourself.
My first product was a keychain. I bought a cheap Galvanized Iron (G.I) wires, and I borrowed 3 types of pliers and bought 1 more pliers from the local electrical shop that sell pliers. And I started bending names through trial and error and through 'copying' from free sources on the internet.
Then I upgraded myself. I bought a roll of stainless steel wires from the local hardware shop for RM 10.50 for 1 roll (5ft) size 1.0mm. Then, later on as I managed to sell my wire name I ordered my beautiful coloured wire craft www.beadholique.com
As for the finished product,one of the best wire names are made by PRESTON REUTHER (MASTER WIRE SCULPTOR)
