You've found me, here at Blue Sand Studio. You see that I'm an artist: I make jewelry, I sell it on Etsy, I paint, I live in Florida. But why Blue Sand Studio? Why not just call my site after my name?
Here was my thought process. I'm in the business of creating jewelry and selling it. But I also make artist books, Artist trading cards, paintings, and use all kinds of mixed media. What might I make in the future? Who knows. That was my first thought: don't pick a name that restricts me to one thing.
Why not use my own name then? Because I'm an artist, and my work gets done in a studio. It's a physical place, but also metaphorically, it's a place where I can plan and think about many things. I can introduce other artists on my blog through artist interviews (such as these interviews with Kecia Deveney and Jenni Adkins Horne). I can review books (check out what I thought of Poemcrazy). I can inspire you with my surroundings.
But I always want you to know that I'm an artist, I embrace others' art, and I want to promote myself and others. To me, that means studio -- a place where I can create art and others embrace art.
Why Blue Sand? I wanted something that reflected my beach roots in Florida.
I first thought of "Silver Sand," which would reflect my use of silver in my jewelry. I rejected that because Silver Sand as a google search gives you tons of links to hotels, and I didn't want to restrict it to just jewelry. I chose "Blue Sand," because blue is my favorite color. Dumb, but that's how I got it. There you have the evolution of my business name, Blue Sand Studio.
Care to tell me the origin of your blog or business name?
