Two blogs in a day? How can that be?? Well, I had a great day at the torch, five-and-a-half hours, to be precise. The result is a full kiln (sometimes, making sculptural stuff can be problematic - if I only made spacers, my kiln wouldn't fill up so fast!)

...and now I'm scared!

....what am I going to call them all???

You see, every week, I have 'special' names. There were the funny sounding names in America (Muddlety springs to mind :o), the Chinese proverbs, the Vulcan words (oh yes!), the Crowded House song titles.....whatever next?

And then there's all the roses and butterflies - they have 'real' names, first names, because they're, well, they're individuals, aren't they??? Some of them, I know immediately what they're called, but others can be harder. And this week, there's one very, very special bead that'll need a female first name. It's blue and teal, and related to water, and that's all I'm saying.

Sooooooo..........what shall all the beadies this week be named after? OH suggested the periodic table...any more for any more? And what about tht very, very special bead?? Which shall remain anonymous for now :o)


  1. Greek names for Nymphs? It was that water related one that inspired me!

    Usually I go for the first thing that comes to mind. For example that golden beauty in the photo (is that the one that I own?) should be Texas but it whispered a different name to me!

  2. Zarya ... Mythology: Zarya is a water priestess and protector of warriors.
