Congratulations to Georgana Gersabeck of Berkley, Michigan who proposed the name “Aurora” for Elise Winters’ new colorway. When she saw Elise’s bead strands she said, “I immediately felt I was looking at the Northern lights.”
Elise sent this me this message on Sunday:
” Your deadline has passed and I checked in to gather the last minute submissions. There were so many great suggestions. And I was very impressed with the depth of thought that people put into their submissions. I loved the Wikepedia research, the poetry and the humor (extra-orchid- ary). It was hard to make a choice. There were quite a few contenters – Fiesta & Calypso capture energy, Sorbet, mango, saffron, melonberry played to my love of luscious juicy FOOD!
I add my thanks to everyone who participated in the “Name That Colorway” Challenge. The names were all very evocative – I could visualize the beautiful inspirations behind each one. It was fun to see the many different ways you can interpret one set of colors.
