I originally wanted 'Silver Lining' for my shop name because of two things:
1. It is a metaphor for optimism, which is something we all need
2. More importantly, it’s in a quote from Harry Potter. (By Ginny, who isn’t really my favourite character, but nevermind that for now)
But so did about a thousand others, it seems. And so it became Arajera, which was suggested by a friend.
Arajera is a play on my name and the Tagalog word alajera, which means jeweler. I’m far from being one now, but who knows? I might just make good on the name.
