Not the hard , tasteless grocery store type
I love sweet juicy homegrown tomatoes,vine ripe and still warm from the sun !
Due to an unusually cold and wet spring , my plants were late going into the garden this year.
I'll have to wait for those wonderful huge beefsteak varieties .
But , I'm finally able to harvest a few little cherry tomatoes.
The sunny shades of fruits on the vine inspired me this week .
I made up a blend of "ripening tomato " colored clay.
I enjoyed those sweet delicious tomatoes and I enjoyed making beads to match !
Beads made ,photos taken, next step ... list in my shop.
But, what to name this series ???
"Ripe Tomato Bead Set" "Homegrown Tomato Pendant" ????
Somehow those names don't bring to mind glamorous jewelry creations .
How important is a name for any piece of jewelry ???
I'm not really sure how much the name affects the buyer.
If I named beads "Victorian" something or other, and a potential buyer wanted to use them for a funky modern creation,
would the name throw them off ?
How much are you influenced by the names of things ?
I do worry about it . Maybe I shouldn't even name my beads .
But, I do. And believe me, I struggle to come up with decent descriptive titles.
I decided to call this week's series "Jungle Rhythm "
It sounded much more glamorous than any tomato name I could think of .
The colors do remind me of steamy jungle foliage and bright tropical flowers .
I hope the name evokes an exotic and unique color blend that will spark people's imaginations.
Dear readers, please keep my secret ...
my beads did not start off in some Gorgeous imaginary Jungle,
the inspiration began in my humble little vegetable garden !
this week give a little thought to how much names influence you
Bead Happy !
