Welcome to Whispering Stones Jewelry! by Bridgette Raitz on 5/4/2016
I'm so delighted to welcome you to the inaugural blog post for my newly branded company, Whispering Stones Jewelry. I began making stone jewelry in the spring of 2015, and called my new venture, Gasp of Delight. For me, the name called to mind the AHHHHHH! we have when we discover something delightful --something we were meant to find. Though this temporary name helped me launch my fledgling venture, ultimately, a proper name seemed to be in order- something that truly represented what we are about, what we offer and describes my relationship to the stones --the foundation for all this wonderful creativity! With the amazing assistance and guidance of my very talented branding consultants, my journey with Whispering Stones Jewelry has begun.
And what a ride it has been so far! As any small business owner, I've tackled my share of the mundane, but as an artist, I have totally reveled in the dance with the stones! In my first ever trip to the Tucson gem show this year, I returned with treasures that have made their way into intention pendants, grounding strands, anklets, earrings and our latest offering, bracelets. All are just waiting to appear at Atlanta's plethora of festivals, gatherings, holiday shows and celebrations while they are consistently displayed on Etsy. And as I have worked my way through rebranding and launching a new website (once again with an amazing consultant), I have learned even more about the variety, breadth and depth of my stone companions on this journey. I can't wait to share these stones with you---either in person, through the website in my stone stories, or in this blog. They are the stars of the show--waiting to nurture, encourage, soothe and support you.
