Bead Naming Contest

Apologies for not having written anything in a while, a long while. I've been on vacation. I've started firing beads again only the last few days. I've come up with a few bead combinations. I am planning on making this one a permanent part of my glaze collection that I'm slowly putting together.

However, I am at a loss for what to call this glaze and thought I would hold a small contest and ask for help in naming this particular glaze.

So this contest is going to continue until I see something that I really like, and if I like YOUR suggestion, I will contact you and send you some thank you beads (at no cost to you of course) ... so leave an email addy in your comment.

This glaze is brushed over a terracotta clay, and goes transparent in spots, though the bead is completely covered with glaze. Have fun! And hey, thanks!

These were all great suggestions. I've had a hard time deciding, but in the end, I think I liked the rhyme factor in the first one: Cantaloupe Smoke.

At some point I may end up using the others and if/when I do, I'll get in touch and send off some free beads.

Eileen B -- please email me with your address and I will send you your beads. Thanks so much!
