I want to make Ugly Jewelry

When I used to study goldsmithing one of my classmates was an older and very talented gentlemen. One day, as we were working in the school's workshop, he told me he wanted to make ugly jewelry. I laughed loudly, as there was no chance this man would be able to produce anything but beautiful jewelry. But then again, I told him we should set up an exhibition and call it "Ugly Exhibition" and I bet everyone would come to see the exhibtion, because of its name!
Ugly Jewelry really struck me as an excellent and catchy name for a jewelry business!
A couple of years later, when I opened my shop I named it "Ugly Jewelry". People who heard about it told me I was crazy and that I can't just call my shop like that. They said it would turn people off, they said it would bring me bad luck... but actually this name has proved itself to be an excellent choice, as the reversed psychology worked magic on people who saw my shop's sign and they all had to come inside it and see what it's all about! They sometimes were stunned, sometimes didn't quite understand it and mostly burst out in laughter!
But all of them had to come inside and see my jewelry. Many of those who saw my shop from the inside said it was magical. They loved the jewelry and bought it.
Thank god I was crazy enough not to listen to what everyone else told me...
