I am loving so many of the flower name entries that I have received and am inspired to use many of your suggestions for future designs.
I found three of the entries very intriguing for the general design. And yes, Christine, I love “Bella Noir” for the specific bobby that was shown. I was looking for a more general name that could be used with any color combination. And I was looking for a feminine name that was visually close to the design. I perused the internet via my own search and your links and I came up with these three finalists…
~The Lenten Rose~
entered by Heidi O.
entered by Debbie A.
entered by Monica B.
This was very hard to choose and I slept on it but the same winner keeps coming to mind…Debbie Arnold who entered the Camelia!
I love the tight, rounded, overlapping features of the Camelia. And visually, when I put the photos side by side, the Camelia jumps out as the closest flower to my design. Congratulations Debbie! And thank you for naming my newest flower design! You can choose up to two colors in the photo below and I will tat this new design for you and create a bobby pin with a pearl center. I can also make a brooch. Contact info is at the bottom of this post.
Because the choice was so difficult, there are runner-ups in this contest. Yay!
Heidi O., thank you for the Lenten Rose. Monica B., thank you for the Gardenia. In the future I will be working to create more accurate representations of both of these flowers. And Christine B., I looooove your enthusiasm and must admit that Bella Noir is a beautiful name for the black and silver flower. The three of you will each get their own Bobby in a smaller size (2 layers instead of 4) in up to two colors.
So-Debbie, Heidi, Monica and Christine, please choose a primary color and secondary color by number or letter from the photo above and send the information in a Facebook message or comment below, or to my email address: email@example.com.
Thank you to all the ladies who participated! You can many more hair accessories in this section of my Etsy shop. This was so much fun. Stay tuned for the next Give-away and more Snappy Tatter happenings!
Live, Love Tat!
