How To Name Your Jewelry Creations

Splash of Intention

"Splash of Intention"

Last week I had burning plans to create some space and organize my beading insanity work space. I could have sworn the cabinet that I talked about using was still sitting in the garage. I swear it was there a few weeks ago. It only took 5 minutes searching and my husband and I suddenly realizing that we gave it to my brother and his wife 6 months ago.

Oops!

I’ve done that with small stuff, like a favorite worn-out sweater that I gave to Goodwill, but misplaced furniture is a first for me. We did end up finding a solution, but I’ll catch you up on that in a future post, after it’s in my hands and I can take pictures to share.

I did get to work on something this week that needed to get done for the ecommerce site. I worked on naming my jewelry. Yes, I named them. I had been throwing around the idea to use themes to describe the pieces. “Element Goddess” sounds much more enticing than “multistrand bead necklace with lampwork bead” – that stuff will be in the description.

What made the process fun was my son getting involved. The kid is very creative and when I said “Do you want to help me name my jewelry?” he was all in. Some very fun and funky names were thrown around, “Comet Trail” and “Emerald Fantasy” are just a few. Throw in an online thesaurus and we were on a roll. You’d be amazed (or maybe not) what comes out of a 14 year old boys head. We named all the pieces that are completed and will be photographed soon. Naming them will make keeping track of inventory so much more fun.

    I love the idea of naming your jewelry…that makes it individual and unique. Have you thought about selling at jewelry markets? They are like a flea market but are all jewelry.

  • Catherine, the writer and motivator

    I am anxious to look at all the jewelry! They are so amazing. What are you going to do when you sell out in the first week?

    I’m glad I am not the only one who gives something away and then goes looking for it six months later.

    I’m thinking of those lawn chairs. Do you muse that they will go out into their backyard this summer and think, “Where is that set of four lawn chairs I had last year…?” Uh, you left them out for Goodwill and all the neighbors couldn’t figure out why…

  • I actually like Comet Trail and Emerald Fantasy – are you using those? (Is my country-hillbilly-unsophisticated hickness showing?)

    I am glad you came up with an alternative for storage. Can’t wait to see the pictures!!!

    How cute, he seems like a fun kid!
