I’d like to be able to FFXIV craft up to 4-star

Hey everyone,

After taking a long break I’ve decided to come back to the game. Looking at my crafting, I’d like to be able to craft up to 4-star. I’ve currently got max-meld on most of my crafting class-specific stuff (though it looks like I need to upgrade my Choker and Earrings?) So far, the steps I need to take look to be:
Get at least around 60 BSM desynth
Use the Fieldcraft I and Battlecraft I’s to get the Demimateria books for LTW and GSM
Get the i55 accessories from those books
Get around 90-100 BSM desynth to get Mastercraft Demimateria
Make 4-star HQ/NQ tokens to get a Supra (boost up Quality bar without risking item to unlock Master Book IIs with RNG HQs)
Make the Artisan Offhand
Make rest of 4-star HQ tokens to get my Master Book IIs
Use my 100 Leves for ingredients for the Lucis turn-in
Moonstone/Oakknot farm daily
Get Lucis when the above 2 are completed
Make the rest of my Artisan gear
Spend all my money melding materia

Basically, I’m wondering if this is a chicken and the egg scenario. Is it possible for me to make the Artisan gear before I actually have it? Is my order even correct? Any guidance you guys could give me would help.

Based on your advice, this is probably what my current progression should be:
Get at least around 60 BSM desynth
Use the Fieldcraft I and Battlecraft I’s to get the Demimateria books for LTW and GSM
Get the i55 accessories from those books
Get around 90-100 BSM desynth to get Mastercraft Demimateria
Make 4-star HQ/NQ tokens to get a Supra (boost up Quality bar without risking item to unlock Master Book IIs with RNG HQs)
Make the Artisan Offhand
Make rest of 4-star HQ tokens to get my Master Book IIs
Use my 100 Leves for ingredients for the Lucis turn-in
Moonstone/Oakknot farm daily
Get Lucis when the above 2 are completed
Make the rest of my Artisan gear
Spend all my money melding materia

I already have the Artisan Spectacles I believe and I have already started farming for the Moonstones and leveling up my Ixal reputation to get the Oaknots going. I meet the minimum requirements to craft the Supra tokens, just need access to all the materials needed. The two steps I have italicized I can probably do as I go as I already meet the stat requirements for the items themselves.
