195 userpics! Wow, Merry Christmas from LJ. :D Now I won't have to pick and choose quite so much.

Sooooo. I know a ton of you on my f-list are fans of Bollywood movies and/or are part of that culture. I have seen a few of the movies, I enjoyed them mightily, and the costumer in me really enjoys the gorgeous costumes/jewelry/etc.

However, I know very little of the culture beyond that cursory exposure, and I need to name a new necklace something that represents it. It isn't as flashy as what I see the women wear, but it reminds of them powerfully nonetheless. If you've perused my Etsy store at all, you've seen how I name things. I'm thinking perhaps the name of a Queen or other famous elegant and powerful historical woman of the culture. Or whatever else you might suggest.

The colors are silver and a fiery orange that pales to almost white. (still need to get pics off the camera).

I think seeing the photos might definitely help when it comes to naming it, see what the colors trigger, you know?

Yes, I am working on that right now. :)

Oh, that's absolutely beautiful!

Which is funny, because all I kept thinking of was the word "suraiya," which is the name of a very, very old school Indian actress. It reminded me of "surya," the Sanskrit word for sun. Then, I looked up what the name "Suraiya" means and it means beautiful! LOL.

Oooooh, I like that! I wonder what "sunset" or "sunrise" are? Naming it something like "beautiful sunset" would work.

Although I might just go with Suraiya all alone. :)

Thank you. :) I've had that focal stone for months because I fell in love with it, but I just finally figured out what I wanted to do with it.

Thanks! I really like how it turned out. the stones were so big, for a long time I didn't know what to do with them.

Also, I just listed it in the Etsy store, more pics and such there. :)
