Name That Beadwork: Win a Wildly Bohemian Blackberry Bush Kit of Beads!

Nov 13, 2012

It's that time again! Time to look at what one of our wonderful editors over at Beadwork magazine has done with the Bead Challenge, come up with a name for that piece, and enter for a chance to win one of the bead kits used to make it!

This time, the kits were from Starman, and contained ten different sizes and varieties of Toho seed beads, plus a lovely assortment of pressed Czech glass beads. Beadwork editor Melinda Barta was up for the challenge, and this is what she created with this kit of beads:

"Cubic right-angle weave, spiral tubular herringbone, tubular peyote, flat peyote, stringing, picot - I may have used as many different stitches as the kit has different types of beads! I dove into this fun kit by starting with beaded beads made of the CzechMates Tiles and a variation of cubic right-angle weave. Once I realized I could link them with sections of tubular peyote, the front of the necklace fell right into place, as did the herringbone and strung straps."

So, what would you name this piece of bead-weaving? Come up with your best name (or names) and leave each one here as a separate comment. We'll leave comments open until December 31, 2012 at 11:59 p.m. CST, and then pick our favorite name. The person who suggested that name will win a free kit of beads like the one used to make Melinda's necklace! (Please note that due to customs regulations, we can only open this contest to those residing in the United States.)

Have fun, and Bead Happy!

Jennifer

Update: The winner of this challenge is Diana Lawless, with the name Beadbunny. Congratulations, Diana!

Meritage since the colors reminds me of wine grapes. Since this piece is combination of different beads and techniques as a meritage is wine from a marriage of grapes.

I would call the piece "Rubato" - It is a musical term that comes from the Italian "rubare" which means 'to steal'.  In music it is the idea of steeling time from one place in the music to use it somewhere else - the result is great freedom and expression in the performance.

"Rubato" describes how some of the thickness of the beadwork is stolen from one section and applied to another.

After reading how the tubular peyote bought the necklace together, I instantly thought of "File" (pronounced fee-lay).  It's used to bring all the different types of meat, seafood, and seasonings together for an indescribely good taste in New Orleans style gumbo.  Once you eat NO style gumbo you don't forget it and it is hard to describe and each time it's just a little different and just as good.
