Name Quest Winner!!!

Thank you so much to everyone who entered their name suggestions either through this blog, through my facebook page or directly to me via e-mail.  Many of them included elements that I would have never conceived of if left to myself.  That's the beauty of this contest!  It expands all of our horizons.  All of the names were so great that I had a REALLY hard time deciding on the winning name.  But the decision had to be made . . .

So, without further adieu . . .(let the drumroll begin) . . . The new name of this bracelet is . . .  Crimson's Crystal !!!.  Congratulations Amanda!  She will be receiving her choice of 25% off anything in my shop or the free PDF version of the band pattern for her personal use.  Be sure to look for it at my etsy shop soon!

Name Quest - One Week To Go!

Okay. . I've finished the bracelet.  Here it is!!  I love the Satin Silk Delicas -  I used them in the buckle portion exclusively and more sparingly in the band.  They shimmer so beautifully!  This one is like the Swirly Buckle Bracelet but in a little different color scheme.

It is more evocative of evening-wear -  more shimmery and decadent while the band is more subdued.  It finishes with a copper swirl that fits around a red, faceted crystal.

Maybe the above description will help get everyones imaginations going.  Because remember, the "Name Quest" still goes on . . . for one more week!  Your last chance to comment and enter the contest is Sunday, May 29, 2011 (by 11:59 p.m. PST). 

So brainstorm and let me know your name - amazing, funny, descriptive, catchy, etcetera, etcetera. . . . I'm open to suggestions! Thank you so much to those who have already commented and entered this contest! So far the suggestions I have are: Jungle Buckle or Safari Swirl.

The winner gets their choice of a 25% DISCOUNT off my etsy shop OR a FREE peyote pattern (designed by me) for the band portion of this bracelet (in PDF format). 

I will announce the winner on Monday, May 30th.  So keep up the great work!  You can comment directly on this blog, e-mail me through the blog, or comment on my Facebook page!

Second Swirly Buckle Bracelet - Name Quest!!

So if anyone has looked at my Works In Progress page, you've probably already seen my newest version of the Swirly Buckle Bracelet.  But just in case you haven't, here is a picture:

The picture was when I first started it, but now I'm almost done, and will be posting the finished bracelet here in about a week (or less)!!  I'm pretty excited about it (as I always am when finishing a new project).  I'm going to make the buckle for it in white and khaki green I think - still toying with the idea of adding another color as well. :-)  Maybe the dark metallic that's already in the bracelet . . hmmmm.

But enough about me - What do you think?  I'm thinking of calling it the Swirly Safari Buckle Bracelet, or maybe just Safari Buckle Bracelet.  I'm open to witty, funny, descriptive - actually any and all name suggestions!!! 

The quest is on!  Just click on comments or send me an e-mail via the blog by clicking on the envelope.  I'll send the winner a prize - your choice of 25% off any item in my etsy shop or the free charted peyote pattern (my own original pattern) sent to you by PDF!!!
