Name That Beadwork: Win a Kit of Beads and Findings from Artbeads!

May 7, 2012

Tila beads, Magatamas, and dagger beads. Can you tell me what all three of these have in common? They are all glass beads that were included in this month's Beadwork magazine challenge kit from Artbeads!

What would you name this ruffled herringbone stitch necklace?
The first thing I noticed when I opened this kit were the colors. Gorgeous, rich, jewel tones were evident in every bead and component, and I loved the metal chain and end caps. Since I haven't done a lot with Tila beads lately, I decided to make them the base for my necklace design.

After I used ladder stitch to make a chain of Tila beads, I started working herringbone stitch using a combination of seed beads, mostly from the kit, but threw in a handful of my favorite blue iris seed beads for contrast. The richly colored Magatamas were the perfect end to my fan of herringbone stitch, and then to add some structure and support to the beaded necklace, I stitched the whole thing to the mesh chain. A leaf-adorned s-clasp from my stash made good use of the end caps and provided the perfect finish for my necklace!

I have a confession to make: since I received the necklace back from the offices of Beadwork magazine, I've worn it every single day. It's just so comfortable and easy to wear!

Leave a comment on this blog with your ideas for a name for my herringbone stitch necklace, and you might win this kit of seed beads, glass beads, and jewelry making components from Artbeads!
Now it's your turn for a chance to win this kit of seed beads, chain, and jewelry making components from Artbeads! Come up with your best name for this necklace and leave it as a comment on this blog post. You'll have until Friday, June 8, 2012 to come up with a name and leave a comment. We'll choose the name that we like best, and the winner will receive their very own kit of seed beads, glass beads, and jewelry-making components from Artbeads. (Due to customs regulations, we can only open this giveaway up to residents of the United States.) Please make sure before you leave a comment that your Beading Daily profile is up to date, and includes a current email address so that we can contact you!

So what would you call this ruffled herringbone stitch necklace? We love to see your ideas!

Bead Happy,

Jennifer

Update: The winner chosen for this challenge was Diane Lyman, with the name Sun's Corona. Congratulations, Diane!

Hi, It is a beautiful necklace, I would call it Indian Summer.  But I see someone used that in a post.  That was the first thing that came to mind when I saw it.  So looking at it again and seeing the stitch and kind of beads, I would call it "Herry Magatama"  (Herry short for herringbone)

    Wonderful names, the readers and beaders of Beading Daily are so amazing. Good Luck to everyone,  I would hate to be the judge on this contest, good luck to the judges also.

    I am thrownig in my thoughts for a name also, the design and colors are so diverse I thought of many cultures this could incompass, so with that said I thought of something that would try and take in many cultures, decades or feel like more than one era.

     Myriad of Matriarchy

I would call this Sodona at Dusk because of the peach and clay colors combined with the muted blue color.  It has an artistic updated southwest style.  I would love to wear this.

I would call it Jeweled Jubilee --for the combination of gorgeous jewel-toned tilas and the time frame of the Queen's Jubilee.  It would be a lovely piece to wear to the celebrations!

I would call this Sedona at Dusk.  It has peach and adobe colors like the mountains with a muted blue for the sky at dusk.  Reminds me of a sunset there.  It also has an appealing artistic updated southwestern style.  I would love to win this!

I'd call it Desert Twilight. The tila beads remind me of sunset and the blue iris beads remind me of coming nightfall. The small gold beads are the stars starting to come out.

Gee, I'm not the only one who thought of Egypt and Cleopatra when I saw this necklace. I also thought of the fact that you said you've been wearing it daily...with great pride, I assume.  

So the first name that comes to mind is Cleopatra's Pride.  

I see many variations on that theme in the responses below; I think they're all good.

Sundance.  The colors made me think of the horse I wanted so badly as a child and never got.  The horse would be buckskin colored with black mane and tail.  I think the breed of horse is called a buckskin which is a golden tan.  Think of the color of an indian moccasin.  The beads in the necklace would coordinate beautifully with this horse.

I'd call this beautiful stunner "The Rise of the Amazonians". It not only looks like ornamentation I have seen in "specials" on the people living along the Amazon,but has a rather organic feel to the piece as well. Great job designing this gorgeous piece.

Herringbone is one of my favorite stitches...so versatile.

Thank you for letting us perticipate in naming your work!

“Nefertiti”

The exotic bead color selection immediately reminded me of the Egyptian queen.  The dark beads represent the Nile that slices and meanders through the desert sands (represented by the beige/gold beads on either side of the black seed beads.  The tila beads remind me of the metals the Egyptians used to make their jewelry, elegant yet simple.

That would be Aztecan, because of the colors. The Aztecan-indians used much of metal in their art-work

I woud name it Fit For The Princess. It's elegant, but not over the top and could be worn every day.
