  1. Maybe it is the time of year but my first thought was "new orleans mardi gras'. All that purple and gold. Love it.

  2. Carribean Reef. These colors transport me to the tropics, the clear blue of the sea, the colorful fish and hint of treasure among the reefs.

  3. Beautiful! My immediate reaction was--oooohh "Arabian Nights" -- it looks so lush. Makes me want to run my fingers through it. CJ

  4. The turquoise is a colour of healing, purple is connected to crown and spirituality, copper is also healing. I think, given this, maye Kali would be good.

  5. Looks yummy, I think tropical treasure is what it first brought to mind.

  6. My choice is "Alera" – ethereal, luminescent glowing light in the land of fantasies and fairies.

  9. Beverly, I just finished reading your newsletter. You do such a wonderful job of sharing so much information with us...thank you.

    I think the bead soup above reminds me of a desert evening sky....

  10. "Cleopatra's jewel box". The colors remind me of an Ancient Egyptian exhibit I saw this Summer. Stunning!

  11. Another gorgeous soup, Beverly! I can visualise a voluptuous belly dancer, copper and turquoise jewellery shimmering with every movement. My suggestion is "Belly dance".

  12. Ooooooo...cool colors remind of the Rings of Saturn

  13. I still haven't finished all the wonderful notes in your newsletter, but I just had to tell you about my gut reaction to your bead soup. I instantly thought of "Monet's Garden." The colors remind me of the lush flowers and the colors in his paintings. Even his "waterlilies" remind me of this -- because in most of his water lily paintings, they weren't green, but lavender and blue.

  14. The first thing I thought of when I saw that is they are all of my favorites. So my vote is "All My Favorites."

  15. Serenity Garden.
    The colors are soft and tranquil. Love them.

  16. Oooh purple and turquoise deliciousness - you know this makes me want to dive right in and swim around in it!!! And what excellent suggestions all. This immediately conjured "turkish delight" or "istanbul nights" for me but I think having read the comments I prefer Barbara's "belly dance" (great name!) or maybe "dance of the veils" - definitely something a touch exotic. It's beautiful. You've cooked up your magic again! :)

  17. This bead soup for me turns into a Persian garden. In the garden is a princess. She's wearing beautiful gold jewelry: head band, necklace with turquoise, bracelets, earrings, and rings. She's wearing a flowing garment of lavender and turquoise with some copper accents. She is beautiful. This bead soup is beautifully a Persian Princess.

  18. Hey Beverly the first thing that pop up in my head was Gipsy Blue...does that ring a bell for you with these colors? Hope you find a good one. See you around my friend.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Wow! Gorgeous colors! For me it resembles something ancient and oriental, like Samarkand treasures.

    ReplyDelete
  20. "Inca Gold" is the first thing that came to my mind. But I have to admit I really like "Belly Dance"!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Love the new soup - I am thinking "Persia" - don't know why but that popped into my head when I saw the photo.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Beautiful mix! “Sunken Treasure” I immediately thought about water, with the depth of watery blues, bright green blues and deep purples. The gold and coppery treasures remind me of lost pirate booty. Thank you adding A Bit about Photography in your latest newsletter; great tips and I’ll definitely try the mosaic exercise. Sheila M.L.

  23. Pharoh's Treasure...the colors are VERY reminiscent of the beautiful jewelry of the ancient Egyptians...beautiful mix!

  24. It reminds me of Playa del Carmen in the Yucatan for some reason. So my name idea is "Mayan Mystery". Love the turquoise and purple together!

    ReplyDelete
  25. It reminds me of a beautiful night sky. "Galaxy"

    ReplyDelete
  26. Purple Passion. It popped into my head.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Beverly, your trunk show will be on Saturday and Sunday, February 20 and February 21? I'm confused with dates...

    ReplyDelete
  28. Beautiful colorway! First thoughts include arabian nights, turkish treasures, but I'm favoring "Sultana's Treasure"

    ReplyDelete
  29. Golden Desert Sunrise...golden purples with hints of the perfectly blue aqua and turquoise day that will be coming...

    ReplyDelete
  30. "A Fairy Godmother's Stash". I don't know. Just feels right;)

    ReplyDelete
  31. May i suggest "Heather" or "Bruyère" as we call it in french, because it reminds me so much the lands we have here in western coasts, like in Ireland.
    Good luck to everyone, these beads are so gorgeous.
    Thank you to share your treasuries and your know-how with us dear Beverly.

  32. I immediately thought of "Atlantis" - the mixture just reminds me of a hidden city of treasures just waiting for someone's creativity to unlock its true potential. :D

    ReplyDelete
  33. Pride if Kashmir? Kashmir Silk ...Silk of Kashmir.... Kashmiri Dream ....Trade Route to India .... Silk Route ....Silk Road .... Incense .... Frankincense Road ....

    Sorry I got carried away :-)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I also thought of sunken treasure and Atlantis came to mind. I go with Mel. Love the new mix.

    ReplyDelete
  35. it looks like "gilded sea" to me!

    ReplyDelete
  36. "passion flower"
    It has the same colors of that lovely bloom I've seen in Hawaii ....
    and the feel of warm soft air and a slight salt taste to it

    ReplyDelete
  37. The color combination has a real exuberant, exhilarating feeling to it for me and the first work that came to mind was "Thrills".

    Really great collection Beverly!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Lots of good suggestions already have been posted, but I'll add mine anyway. I like A Maiden's Treasure Chest -- copper, not gold, and bright cheerful colors -- and Dancing Across The Milky Way. The only suggestion I did not care for was Northern Lights because, in my experience, most auroras predominate in light greens, whites, and reds.

    ReplyDelete
  39. My favorite colors. I'm not sure if this has to do with yesterday's game or marde gras, but my suggestion is "Orleans." Beautiful!!!

    ReplyDelete
  40. As I was walking at lunch, I decided I liked Scherezade's Treasures.

  41. I don't know exactly why, but it feels very Moroccan to me but still more evening-ish sooooo - "Moroccan Moonbeams" is my suggestion!

    ReplyDelete
  42. So many ideas that popped in my head are already taken. How about "treasure chest"? Or decadent desire....? Beautiful colors and so very very rich.

    ReplyDelete
  43. The first thing that I thought of was "Treasure Chest", or "Jewels of the Sea". The colors are awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Cleopatra came to mind - whatever you end up calling it - it's stunning!

  45. The turquoise blues and coppery browns remind me of the sea, and the purples are very regal looking - like a princess' bedroom. How about "Thalassa" or "Amphitrite"?

    ReplyDelete
  46. It looks like "aztec treasure to me LOL. Turquoise and copper.

    As always, a wonderful mix

    ReplyDelete
  47. i just want to touch the fabrics. hold them to my cheeks and feel the textures against my bare skin. the cold beads too. i want to take in their colour.

    ReplyDelete
  48. oooo...that translucent turquoise is just luscious. I think of a Moroccan wedding - a celebration of culture and color!

    ReplyDelete
  49. The colours instantly reminded me of fairy floss or cotton candy as it is called in the US... so the name I choose is "Fairy Floss Dreams".

    Thanks for the opportunity to win this gorgeous bead soup!
