I'm really inspired by wildflowers right now, and I am making jewelry that looks like old machines overtaken by vines and flowers.
I like to research kinds of flowers before naming each jewelry piece. I've found so many beautiful flowers, but their names are just terrible!
Would you be intrigued by a necklace named Milk Vetch? I wouldn't, and it's so sad because Milk Vetch is a really beautiful flower. Milk Vetch sounds like what happens to someone who is lactose intolerant.
Then there is Hepatica. A gorgeous flower, but the name sounds like a venereal disease.
I've been finding flowers with cooler sounding names, but they are still not right for jewelry. Like Rattlesnake Master. Not something you want to wear on your neck, but it would look great on a business card.
Yes, my name is Kristin, and I am a Rattlesnake Master! Here's my card.
