Hello. My Name is ......

Noticed recently that there are quite a number of sellers who named their jewelry after a person's name. Sometimes there is a correlation between the product and its name but sometimes it doesn't or not explained. Do you think it's more personal to own a piece of jewelry with a name? Does it add to its personality?

I recently just named my very first pair of earrings... Her name is Alice.

Here.. come and meet my other friends, Sophie, Amy and Carrie.... :)

I definitely think a name on a piece of jewelry or collection adds a touch of character and it allows for a subtle connection between the artist and his/her client. ;)

i like the names... it makes the jewelry seem more personal and cuter for some reason. ;)

Names add a touch of cool. Hmm, maybe I could name my quilts. : )

It's difficult to come up with unique names for every item but giving them real names gives you an endless inventory of ideas. Great idea.

Ooh I love Amy!! I give all my pieces unique names, but never people names. I worry that if someone has a negative association with a certain name, it might turn them off an item? I don't know how often that would happen, and I definitely wouldn't do that personally, but I wonder.

A lot of businesses do that. There is a "christie" pant and Victorias Secret, and a girl that I went to school with did an intership at roxy and all thier clothes were "named" too. I think names are fun, but I don't think it makes the item more personal.
