new year, new name: welcome to harvest moon

This is a quick heads up to let you know that I’ve changed the name of my online shop, and therefore of this blog. From now on, I’m Harvest Moon Jewellery.

Why the change of name? Well, the main reason is that I wanted an English language name. Since setting up nearly three years ago, I’ve found that most of my Etsy shop customers are in the UK and USA, so it seemed sensible to switch to something they could more readily understand and identify with. The French just don’t seem to ‘do’ online shopping so much, and those who do shop with me tend to do so via A Little Market, which is a French language online shopping platform. I’ll be keeping my old name, La Petite Maison Bijoux, for that.

So, as I was changing anyway, I thought I’d try to find a name that better reflects and represents the jewellery that I’m making now, which is somewhat different from my designs of three years ago. After a lot of thought, and an awful lot of searching to find a suitable name that wasn’t already taken on Etsy and various social media platforms, I came up with Harvest Moon. It captures the natural and mythological side of what I make, and has associations with silver. Plus there’s a nod to Neil Young, which is never a bad thing.

It’ll be business as usual with my making, and here on the blog, so I hope you’ll stick with me in my new guise.

  1. I love the new name. I love the old name by the way but I can certainly see your logic and any excuse to listen to Neil Young is reason enough. A rose by any other name …. your products are so beautiful and getting more and more exciting to an old bag in the Cantal. I will remain loyal and I am sure the new name will draw many more devotees.
