Opinions Needed

So I'm going to be registering a company name with the State of Washington in the next few days.

I was going to register "Tahoma Beadworks", but since I do more than just beading, I need help picking a name, although I do like the 'beadworks' word. I called myself 'Ross Valley Beadworks' when I was in California.

That's where you come in. I need opinions on the following names:

Tahoma Beadworks

Tahoma Beadworx

Tahoma Beads & Crafts

Tahoma Beads-n-Crafts

  2. I quite like Tahoma Beadworks myself.

    Failing that, something, short, sweet and playful? Can you play on the word "beads" in some way?

    My friend who makes clothes has the trade name Moneyspider, which I think is quite neat.

  3. What about Tahoma Craftwerks?I like Tahoma Beadworks if you man from the list though.

    I like Tahoma Beadworks.
    Though you could call yourself the Crafty Mama. Hee hee.


  5. I like #1 and/or #3. I like straight forward spelling myself.

  6. I like Tahoma Beadworks. It has a nice ring to it, sounds professional and to the point.
    My opinion anyway ;-)

  7. OK good, b/c I was leaning towards Tahoma Beadworks too. I just wanted to make sure others agreed!

    Axe, I can't access your blog today for some reason.

  8. How about Tahoma Kraftwerk in honour of the German band?

    Or knock off the capitalisation and have tahoma beadworks

  9. I wasn't a fan of Kraftwerk, although I do like that genre of music.....

    BTW, Tahoma is Mt. Rainier's real name.

  11. jojo - you are tahoma beadworks - that's the name we've come to know and love

  12. Excellent. Thank you all for your opinions! I just wanted to make sure that I was making the right choice and I was!


  13. I love Tahoma Beadworks... how about something like:
    Tahoma Beadworks and more
    Tahoma (it's not just) Beadworks Tahoma Beadworks etc.

  14. Hey there Chefsgirl! Glad to see you here!!! :D

  15. I like Tahoma Beadworx. I like different spellings of names. To me is gives a kick.

  16. Joanne,

    I am glad you went with Beadworks rather than Beadworx. The later is fun, but a little amatuerish when compared to the work I've seen on your web pages.

    Good luck!
