Naming Finished Work – Blog It!

Most bead makers name their beads for selling online.  I’ll admit when I first started selling I thought the concept was curious.  I now realize a name can evoke an emotion and helps the buyer understand what you might have been thinking when creating the beads.  Or perhaps it was just the song you were listening to? 

How do you name your finished work?  Blog it!

    I have “always” named my beads that I am selling. I am not sure if it was from the many I bought on eBay and figured it was protocol, that you had to name your beads. I know I used to see some seller’s who numbered their sets and I thought “hmmm how generic and ordinary…not special and unique”.

    Name that Bead! Or set…

    It’s not that easy, at least for me!

    Well, I posted about this–mostly asking questions. I wonder where the line is when it comes to drawn / painted media versus crafts and scupltural / glass / clay art?

    Mincot – OMG – why do you ask such complicated questions?

    I name everything & write stupid stories sometimes too ~

    Name that Bead – it’s the “zen” ting to do.

    Naming work? Well sometimes it just “comes to me” something to do with the colors or feel the piece gives me. Sometimes I just wing it!

    Hi! I name them too…or rather the bead announces its name to me. 🙂
