Default As to the proper naming of beads

Ok so I go out and make some blue striated barrel beads with subtle hints of teal greens and stronger blues then name them "Saragasso Seas" because that's what they remind me of right?

So looking at them I decide they would look good in green also.
I then go back to mix up the colors and make the beads.

After that I go into the bathroom and spot a bar of Irish Spring soap sitting in the soap dish and compare it to the beads.

Hence the new name for the bead set is .........

"Irish Spring" LOL I could not have done that on a bet LOL They look exactly like a bar of Irish Spring Soap striations and all.

I will post a photo later LOL

At least I have sense enough to chronicle the alchemy involved.
It sure beats not doing that and wondering a year from now just
how I make them.

Ask me how I know. LOL
