New Poll

Normally, a finished piece of jewelry tells me its name. When that doesn't happen, I go through my extensive library of Greek and Celtic mythology, sci-fi and fantasy (yes, I speak Elvish...wanna make something of it?) and come up with something.

This necklace is giving me a hard time for some reason. I found some references to hummingbirds in Mayan mythology, but I don't think that Huitzlcoatl is really an inviting name for a piece of jewelry.

So, thanks to Erin from Tesori Trovati for giving me a link to a hummingbird site - including poetry about hummingbirds (who knew?)! This sparked a few ideas in my mushy brain, but now I can't decide which one I like best so I'm running another poll. Please help me decide on one of those OR if you hate them all, feel free to post your ideas in the comments.

Why not just call it the Hummingbird necklace? That would be my preference over the names in the poll.

So glad that my mad need to search GoodSearch and Google was an inspiration to you! Sometimes when I am presented with someone else's challenge I have no problem whatsoever diving in and making all sorts of ridiculously uninvited suggestions. Glad that I didn't wear out my welcome KJ!
Enjoy the day!

That is a beautiful necklace and a great focal. I think that I would like a name with hummingbird in the title such as hummingbird nectar, hummingbird delight, or hummingbird garden.

It was fun to do a little research about hummingbirds!
