I have returned

Well, my last two weeks were sort of restful. Even though I was still working in the studio, the psychological relief of having my Etsy shop closed was nice. But I am ready to be back. I've reopened on Etsy, with a few changes. Also some new designs, with more to come. I have some blue diamonds on the way, and I really hope to have something new and different ready for the end of the week. So stay tuned. Until then, I have this new eternity ring finished just today to share. I'm not sure what to call these new eternity bands. It is easier for me to remember a design when talking to someone about them if they use the name. A description like "it was a white metal with small diamonds" all around doesn't really tell me exactly what they are talking about. But a name for each thing really helps me to identify just what piece they mean. What should I name this?

And what about the other two new ones? There is one with 5 diamonds all in a row, and then one (soon to be a set of three) with six diamonds spaced asymmetrically around the band. I think I will call that one the scattered band? No? Diamond scatters? Constellation bands? Coming up with names is the hardest thing to do, without sound pretentious and/or ridiculous. Help!

Welcome back! I'm glad you're triumphing over those terrible nightmares.

this one looks very fluid. maybe the name could be the diamond water ring. or something?

@Kelly Reece Thanks! I haven't quite gotten over the nightmares just yet. I had a crazy dream the other night that I was trying to deliver something and I had to fly/drive to the airport, and there were huge planes dropping big herds of shopping carts (?!?) down on the road with huge parachutes. It was like frogger.

@ Jennifer That's a great suggestion! My bestfriend think it looks lacy or victoriany.

I think you should mix the two and call it Victorian Rain or Victorian raindrops. It totally reminds me of both. Like that scene in pride & prejudice when Elizabeth and mr. Darcy finally kiss, that is what this ring is. I love it, of course I love everything you make so what's new?

-Jenn (who bought the ceylon three stone ring and is hassling you for more, but can't make up her mind cos everytime she does you put something new out!)

Hi Jenn!

I totally took your advice and named it the Victorian Water ring. hehehehe.

Thanks to everyone for helping me come up with something!
