Name That Beadwork: Win a Kit of Vintage Beads!

Jan 31, 2012

Welcome to the new Beading Challenge blog here on Beading Daily! This is where you'll be able to come up with a name for my Challenge pieces in Beadwork magazine - and win a free beading kit!

Come up with a name for this beaded necklace, and you could win a free beading kit!

In the February/March Beadwork, we were supplied with a beautiful kit of vintage beads and components from A Grain of Sand. I've always had a thing for vintage beads, so I was all over this kit. I knew right away that I wanted to do something with the vintage tortoise colored rings, but I didn't know what. At first, I thought maybe I'd connect them with the matte green metal chain that was included in the kit, but couldn't figure out how to do it.

I looked at the seed beads that came with the kit. They were in my favorite colors of mustard yellow and transparent brown. Holding them up against the green and yellow striped seed beads, I had a flash of inspiration and dug out a bag of green cylinder beads that I've been hoarding in my stash. Eureka!

This beading kit includes vintage aluminum chain, vintage seed beads, a Miriam Haskell brass fan stamping and a beautiful Swarovski crystal clasp!
After I stitched and embellished the peyote stitch bands to connect the rings, I knew I needed a neck strap. For me, this is always the hardest part of designing a necklace. I was totally stumped until I started playing with the corrugated metal beads and the seed beads. What this piece needed was a simple multi-strand neck strap! I finished it with a hammered gold hook and eye clasp from my stash.

Now that I've done the beading, you get to do the naming! Come up with a name for this piece and leave it as a comment on this blog. You'll have until February 29, 2012 at midnight EST to leave your comment. After that, I'll enlist the help of Beadwork magazine editors Melinda Barta and Danielle Fox to choose the name that we like the best. (The winner will be notified by email, so make sure that you have an updated email in your Beading Daily account!)

The winner will receive the beading kit pictured here from A Grain of Sand that I used as the inspiration for this beaded necklace! (Unfortunately, due to customs regulations, we can only send this beading kit to winners who reside in the United States.)

Get your friends together, take a good look at this beaded necklace, and come up with your best names for this piece! You could win a free beading kit from A Grain of Sand!

Bead Happy,

Jennifer

WHY Goddess of the Sea? Because there is strength and order in the shape, but also random, flowing lines. Gives an impression of waves and sea weed with a touch of the 'super-natural'.

"E. imbricata's Rescue"   after the scientific name of the tortoise that inspired the toroiseshell rings and the fact that the seed bead strands attached to the rings look like life savers.  The sea turtle is an endangered species so it would seem appropriate that they need some life saving efforts.

i would call it ,"Triquetra".

a triquetra is the name of three sided celtic knot that mimics the triangular shape of the centerpiece of the necklace and is reminiscent of the tortoise color rings you have used.  even though the piece doesn't have only three rings, the center design work does form the shape of a triangle which in the triquetra can mean a number of different, while related things.

for example:

mother, father, child

mind, body, spirit

creator, sustainer, destroyer

thought, feeling, emotion or

the goddess bridgit who is associated with art, healing and metalsmithing.

anyway, that's what it just reminded me of and i had to do a little research to remember the meaning so that i could explain it better.  

good luck with your name hunt!

I think "Green River" or "Forest River" would be the right name for this piece. It flows like a slow green-yellow forest river, by mossy banks and sludgy shallows, into two deep dark pool lakes surrounded by green grass and lovely little flowers. Like a day in a summer forest.

"Crop Circles" comes to mind, as the colors are very earthy and the design is simple and complex at the same time.  I also get the feeling of 'ancient-ness' from the tortious shell, and of course tortious' and crop circles have both been around since before us, so why not!

Beading kit naming idea:

Since it came from "A Grain of Sand" - consider calling it The Sands of Time.  

The multistrand necklace reminds me of sand flowing down through one of those vintage hourglasses, marking the passing of time.  Each component is vintange which ties into the idea of the passing of time, marked by the passing of grains of sand (or in this case, vintage seed beads).  It is by connecting the beads/components and connecting with those elements that we connect with the past.  This goes beyond the "beader" to the wearer of the piece.  In this way, we are all connected to each other- rather like the beads in the strand

Like Sands Through the Hourglass

The earthy seed beads pour down through the hourglass shape. The name also reminds us where this great kit came from. And for those who are old enough to remember this phrase brings us back to an era before tortoise shell and folding fans were vintage.

This Day Lilly is strong. It has the tones of the earth to the flourish of color in its bloom just like Day Lillies. Strong and beautiful.

It has the ultimate virtue for any woman and her wardrobe. It goes with nearly everything!!  =)

The colors and bands remind me of St Patrick's Day. The first thing that popped into my head was Leprachan's Gold. Strange how things can strike us like that. Besides - who knows what's in that elf stash? LOL

This necklace reminds me of fertile ground with grasses springing forth with new froth.  So I would name it - Spring Reawakening!

"Spring rings" or "Daisy chain" There are lots of greens and yellows in this piece, which reminds me of spring and summer, also, the yellow is a daisy- like color, there are ring- like chains, which is gorgeous and a bit exaggerated.

It reminds me of the desert in the Big Bend in Texas.

I would call it "Grass and Stones in the Desert Wind" or just "Desert in the Wind".

The necklace has a loose, joyful quality that reminds me of handmade tribal adornments -- like something a 19th-century traveler might have brought home from a long sail to strange and exotic places.  The colors are earthy, with just a touch of the sea... and then there's that lovely simulated tortoiseshell.

So I would name it "Galapagos Passage."

I would name the necklace, Ireland Rings because the colors remind me of the Ireland countryside in the morning when the sun just begins to shine on the lush green grass. There is a yellowish glimmer kind of sparkle. The rings remind me of the crop circles I saw with the glimmers.

Looks like a desert piece to me... how about Sahara Harness... sort of reminds me of a harness that a horse rigged up for a parade or circus might wear...Pretty... and I love the colors.  Know I am a little after the time but didn't get it until now...Hope you will still consider it.   Thanks.  Lovely piece.
