July Blog Carnival - Do you name your pieces

The topic of the month for the Starving Artists Blog Carnival is "do you name your pieces".  I have seen so many beautiful creations by jewellery artisians that have some stunning names ... sadly, mine are not that original although I do plan to change this.  I have written previously about some of the bead patterns I have created, in future these patterns will be allocated names.

I apply the creative process to my actual work, so this is going to extend to the pattern, piece or design I make.  No more of the "obvious", ie - when I created the pattern for this cuff ... I bet you can guess the name!

If you guessed water yep - that's how original I got!

So, here are a couple that are in the works - this one is a part of a series of patterns I have created called "watching you"

Another series I have created consists of geometric shapes - this one (at this stage) is called reflections.

Last but not least is my floral series.  This one is the botanical name for one of my favourite flowers - the Peony and is called Paeoniaceae

Thought for the Week

Women are Angels.
And when someone breaks our wings,
we simply continue to fly..........on a broomstick.
We are flexible like that
