What is the background on your business name?
I called my hand made jewelry shop on Etsy "Casual Goddess" because I
specialize in casual jewelry for everyday wear. All my jewelry is really

more. Even the smallest pendant can be an eye catching conversation
piece. It really is great when you hear people are talking about your
