Anyone Want to Win One of my Crazy Necklaces?

Here's one of my crazy necklaces. I made this one for a very dear friend's birthday. She loves green, so of course I had to make her a green necklace. Lately, I've been packaging them in "ribbon bags" that I make, which I think are kinda sweet.
I need a name for my creations. I tell everyone "they're what you get when you combine a box of beads and a couple of glasses of wine." So I'm thinking perhaps it should have "bead" and "wine" in the name. Yes, I've already thought of BeadWine Creations, or BeadWine Jewelry. But that's just too darned ordinary. I want something more unique and catchy. Maybe I should ask you all for your suggestions, and offer a custom-made necklace for whoever comes up with something I like. I guess the next question is: "Would anyone want one?" I don't sell them, I just give them away - sometimes I include one when I send a swap out. Or for a friend, like this one. Here are a few more I've made...

So - how about it? Anyone got any brilliant ideas for my crazy jewelry? If you do, and you're interested in a free necklace, please leave a post here on my blog with your crazy name suggestion, and I'll send a necklace in the colors of your choice for the crazy name I like the best. Let's say...crazy names will be accepted through January 25. Wow - I think I just created my very first giveaway!
