This month's subject is "do you name your creations?"
Yes, I used to. But due to a few reasons not anymore.
Here some of my "older" creations:
This one I named African Queen. I normally come up with a name
after the piece is finished. I look at it and the first name popping
up in my mind is the one. ;)
I mostly wrote the name within in the picture. Around that time
I heard that a lot of artists' pictures were more or less stolen and
used for other purposes. I simply wanted to make it more difficult.
Removing a written name from a picture is a lot of hassle. :)
This one reminded me of a wonderful summer party on a big lawn
with lots of big white pavillons.
This bracelet was called moana. I had a phase when I used
only Hawaiian names. Moana means ocean.
I am a sci-fi fan. I do love Beadles' moonfocals.
The first sci fi book ever I read when I was 12 yrs or so
was called "Andromeda".
The clasp reminded me of a tribal shield
of an African tribe
Can't you just see a flower fairy wearing this?
This one was called "The Woods of the Edhel", edhel is
a word from one of Tolkien's languages meaning "elves".
I am "Lord of Rings" fan after all :)
There are a few reasons why I don't name all of my creations
anymore and never write the name in the pics.
- Pictures with names are rarely taken into Etsy treasuries or
the front page.
- I changed the way I take photos and often work on
old photos to improve them especially the lighting and
It is a real pain for me to get rid of a name in a pic
pixel by pixel.
- I have been designing for 6 years now and sometimes I had
simply troubles to come up with a name which is a shame.
A few years back a friend of mine wrote a few books about
wire-techniques and I named about 80% of her creations
in one of them which was great fun.
