Starving Jewelry Artist Carnival Blog.... " Do You Name Your Pieces?"

Well the simple answer to that question is NO!  I DO NOT name jewellery pieces...  Unless they are going into a show.. or being sold on Etsy....  And then it's usually my husband that names them, However long ago when I did large fused plates I did name everything... I would spend longer figurng out the name then I spent slaving over the plates!


This is called Xray fish.... there is actually a dichro fish behind the copper skeleton which doesn't really show up.


The fused Mozaic turltle was done for a show I did in a gallery in Saskatchewan... the show was called "Broken Glass" and was all large fused mozaic plates... This one is originally called ' The Turtle'


Etsy gets cute 'original' names like winter tree... spring tree,  Jelly in Green Lagoon.... 

 I would  much rather  make a piece to fit a title than to have to figure out titles for my own work!

Wonderful fused glass plates, do you still make them?
I do tend to name all my pieces and it can somtimes take ages or I do make something to fit a theme I am working with that then becomes the name, simple!

Re still making fused glass plates... not often... I did do one for an art auction this winter, but we were away so I don't know what it sold for!

I see the turtle, but it took a second look to get it. Nice work.

Those plates are so beautiful, they don't need names - they speak for themselves.

Nice to have a hubby who cooperates!
