My business has always been a little bipolar. I love making intricate, fancy, sparkling designs in wire, but I also love making geeky, colorful chainmaille stuff. And, I've wanted to teach wire wrapping for many years.
When I officially quit my day job (but I'm still doing it, ugh... it's so hard to keep doing a job you know you're done with... nearly there) I decided that my bipolar business needed to split to serve its two different customer bases. So I brainstormed a new name for the new business with my creative son's help, and we came up with the name Incurvata... basically Latin for "to bend." Or something like it. My glassworks will land there, too.
So I've been hard at work getting this site up to snuff so that customers can jump from here to the corresponding listing page on Etsy, as well as doing some groundwork marketing for the new venture. A logo is in the works, and I'm tinkering with a website, but the new Incurvata Etsy shop and Facebook page are both live. Gradually, the "fancy" wirework will disappear from YGM's feeds (except Instagram, everything goes to Instagram).
This site is really close to being link-ready (please let me know if you find any bad/dead links), and the next step after that will be listing a TON of new stuff. Keep an eye on both Facebook pages or Instagram for listings for awesome new shinies, including the pendant above, which is my new favorite thing ever.
