Name these beads

Here are some of the beads that I've made in the past few days.

I'm completely stumped as to what I should call these blue beads, so I thought I'd ask you!

If you can think of a suitable name for them then please post it in my comments section and I'll pick my favourite at some point tomorrow afternoon. You can post as many name suggestions as you like and the person who provides the name I eventually choose will 'win' some of my beads.

Happy name-thinking!

I LOVE these beads & the lovely layered effect you've captured. Strato-Spheres?

I can spell so the hyphen is deliberate :-)

May I make an amendment? It goes against the grain to bend spelling rules, but how about Strata-Spheres?

Laura said...

I like it, Jennifer - with either spelling! :o)

"Corduroy", "Cor-du-roi", or "Cord of the King". These beads just make me think of corduroy fabric. You could also go with "Cord-on Bleu"!
