Whats in a name I hear you ask ~ in my opinion lots ~ way back when (2005) I was choosing a name for my business I wanted something that wasn't my name ~ I envy people who have chic and sassy names ~ mine isn't quite that ~ don't get me wrong I adore my husband and I chose to take his name but its not something I would choose as a business name. So after endless searching I chose gemheaven ~ I was thorough when choosing my name ~ I checked the internet and domains ~ at the time gemheaven.com although not available was not being used and I kinda hoped one day I could get it.
So gemheaven was born and I have loved the fact over the last five years people have come to know and recognise my branding. Looking around my studio I have boxes, labels, business cards etc etc all with my logo and name. So I hear you all ask what is my point ....??
Well a little like a cat marking his territory I am letting you know there is only one gemheaven jewellery ~ whatever the person I found yesterday with the same name website (apart from a little hyphen) who lives in the next county to me ~ I would like you to change your name to something else ~ your business is new and unknown on the internet!
I really can't understand how someone thinks they can set up a business in the same name selling jewellery without really the ethics of it being called into question but I would like to think its just something that happened without any thought.
To my wonderful friends from all over the world I thank you for all your continued support of my little piece of the internet.
