My blogging journey all began because I had a love for making jewelry, which you can read about > here <
I opened my Etsy Shop on September 4th, 2013 and by the end of December I started thinking I might reach more jewelry lovers through writing about my creative process on a blog. I tried really hard to keep my topics about jewelry in one way or another, such as; The Journey To Find My Passion, Beach Findings, A Beautiful Collaboration, and Back To Basics (to name a few). But I have always been a writer at heart, and it was simply impossible for me not to write about other things that were on my mind. Things of a much more personal nature, like He Saved Me From Myself, which was also a prompt from another blogger. I wanted to be part of this wonderful WordPress community and interact with other bloggers, share inspiration and pain and wisdom and laughter… these are all things I seek and discover every day in the blogosphere.
I am no longer here, writing, to boost my views or sales on my Etsy shop.
I am a writer. I am a blogger.
The word Contortum describes my mind just as nicely as it describes the process of my jewelry design,
Contortum is a Latin word defined as “involved, intricate, obscure, tangled/complicated”
For these purposes I suppose “designs” could be interpreted as writing…
So my blog means Involved, Intricate, Obscure, Tangled, Complicated Writing.
I think that’s kind of fitting actually!
*This is not to say that I am abandoning the Contortum Designs Etsy Shop. I am, however, less focused on it. I am not producing new pieces as frequently as I was and I am not planning on picking up the pace in the near future. I am still accepting custom orders, please contact me if you are interested in that.
