What's In a Name? Maybe a Free Beading Kit!

Oct 31, 2011

The piece: a twisted herringbone rope accented with two lush tassels of fringe and a crystal flower centerpiece. Come up with the best name for this piece of beadwork, and you win the beading kit pictured below courtesy of Red Panda Beads!
Sometimes I think that naming my beading projects is the hardest part of the whole process. (See my previous blog about naming your beadwork and where you can get ideas for names!) A good name can be really important for a piece of beadwork. It can convey so much about the inspiration for the piece or maybe something about the beadweaving or jewelry-making techniques you used or even the colors of your seed beads.

Do you enjoy finding names for your beadwork? How about someone else's beadwork? Here's your chance to name a piece of beadwork and win a beading kit from Beadwork magazine!

This piece was my first-ever challenge piece for Beadwork magazine. The kit was supplied by Red Panda Beads, and it was quite a kit for my first challenge! There was a wide selection of cylinder beads, some drop beads, triangle beads, cube beads, a lovely gold floral clasp, a bracelet finding, a pendant and a spool of Spider Wire beading thread. I was completely overwhelmed by it all and had no idea where to start.

My first idea was to make a bead-embroidered cuff bracelet with all those yummy beads. The textures and colors would have been amazing - but sadly, I didn't have nearly enough time to do it. I began to think about that beautiful crystal and enamel pendant and a new idea began to form. It turned out to be the Longest Twisted Herringbone Rope in the Entire World because it felt like it actually got shorter the longer I worked on it!

Do you love a good challenge? Here's one for you! Let's name this piece of beadwork!

This was an amazing beading kit to work with. It included several colors of Delica beads, seed beads, drop beads, long Magatamas, findings, and a spool of Spider Wire beading thread!
Here's how it works: Take a good look at this piece of beadwork and come up with a name for it. Leave your name as a comment on this blog post. You'll have until Wednesday, November 30th to come up with a name. If you come up with more than one name, you can leave another comment with it! After November 30th, we'll close the comments on this blog post and choose from the names suggested. The person who suggests the name we choose will win a beading kit, courtesy of Red Panda Beads that includes everything you see here. (Unfortunately due to customs regulations, we can only send this prize to residents of the U.S.)

So put on your thinking caps and grab a cup of tea. Come up with the best name you can think of (or two or three names!), post them here as comments on the blog, and you just might win this big beading kit! (Free beads - who doesn't love free beads?)

Bead Happy,

Jennifer

This kit is definitely fit for a Snow Princess. So I think "Snow Princess" should be it's name.

Mystic Slide popped into my head when I saw this necklace.  It can see it on a 1920s flapper girl dancing away with it swinging to the music.  Very nice piece and what a great collection of beads (wow!).  Christine Wilson

I love the necklace. It reminds me of old fashioned daffidils blooming through late winter frosts and ruffled poet shirts. The name that came to my mind is Poeticus.

The floral focal is very delicate and feminine, and its simplicity makes me think of oriental artwork while the design is basically a western Boa.  This made my first thought be "East meets West".   I also think that the tassels and flower add a Victorian feel so perhaps this is more "Go West Young Lady, Go West" .

I'd call it Daisy Duster. The color reminds me of daisies, plus it has a 1920's flapper feel, like F. Scott Fitzgerald's Daisy Buchanan. A duster is both a 1920's long coat and a a feather duster, and this reminds me of both. So there you go! Daisy Duster!

Hi.  As soon as I saw it I remembered a poem I once wrote to a spider and this lovely necklace was made using spider wire, the  name would be: Arabesque to an Arachnid.  I live in Canada but I have friends who live in the States.  One of them would be willing to accept the prize on my behalf and mail it to me-if you like the name.  If this is not acceptable, I understand - you can still use the name.

When I look at the necklace with this in mind, I see two shrubs set at the entrance to the path, and a lovely fountain at which to sit and enjoy the day.

I like the name "Champaign Bubbles" because that is what the fringe looks like. I also like "Golden Delight" or Golden Surprise" since you were not sure what you were going to make at first. Whatever you decide to name it, it is a beautiful piece!

on Nov 15, 2011 2:38 AM

Another idea is "The Proposal" with the champaigne bubble tassles and the center piece representing the engagement ring. The twisted rope represents the couple joining their lives together.

Or you could name it "The Romance".
