Name That Beadwork: Win a Kit of Seed Beads and Brass Findings

Mar 1, 2013

After a long, cold winter, I always look forward to wearing my bright, colorful spring skirts, and this spring, I think I may have made the perfect beaded necklace to go with them, thanks to this month's Beadwork magazine challenge kit!

I really wanted to challenge myself with this kit, and use as many of the beads and jewelry-making components in it as possible. I was already working on some beaded flowers for another big project, so I made a couple of smaller beaded flowers as practice for this piece, using the seed beads in the kit. I had fun playing around with the arrangement of the Lucite flower beads and the brass findings, and before I knew it, I had a very Marie Antoinette-style bead embroidered necklace on my beading board!

The kit for this project was supplied by Eclectic, Etc., and included a spool of brass jewelry stringing wire, brass crimps, a simple but beautiful brass hook and eye clasp, assorted brass findings and filigree beads, ceramic beads, Lucite flowers, and some lovely seed beads. And you can win your very own kit!

All you have to do is come up with a name for my necklace, and post it here as a comment before April 30, 2013 at 12:00 midnight CST. After that, we'll choose which name we like the best, and the winner will receive a kit of beads as pictured here! (Please note: due to customs regulations, we can only open this contest to residents of the United States.)

What would you name this necklace? Leave a comment (or two or three!) and you might win this beading kit!

Bead Happy,

Jennifer

Update: The winner chosen for this naming challenge was Lisa Gay, with the name Grape Juice Smile. Congratulations, Lisa!

I'd call it "Violetas Madrileñas" - the necklace instantly reminded me of a shop called "La Violeta" I visited when staying in Madrid a couple of years ago. It sells candy that tastes like violets and the design of the necklace reminded me of the shop's decorations. Also, the design could be seen as inspired by the Moors' (Spanish-Arab population) culture and designs which can often be seen around Spain - however traditionally they'd chose red and black instead of purple. So, this is why I chose the name. (Concerning the contest - I am not a resident of the US so I am aware that I am not eligible to enter).

I would call this piece "Ostara", which is the Pagan or pre-Christian word/name associated with the first day of spring and the vernal/spring equinox.  Different cultures celebrate Ostara nowadays and sometimes the celebrations last for several days.  I think the spirit in which you created this necklace, looking forward to spring arriving at last and being able to revel in the colors of the season, correlates perfectly with what Ostara is all about.

I realize that this will probably kill my chances to win, but I read through each and every entry through mine here. All of the names are so good but one really popped out at me by pipin9602 submission:  "High Spirited Hydrangea". I think that name captures the essence of the piece precisely. Anyway, that is just my opinion.

From the poem:

“Build thee more stately mansions, O my soul,

As the swift seasons roll!

Leave thy low-vaulted past!

Let each new temple, nobler than the last,

Shut thee from heaven with a dome more vast,

Till thou at length art free,

Leaving thine outgrown shell by life's unresting sea!”
