Labeling items in pops brine

Hi everyone. I have been learning so much from everyone I just have to give a shout out "thank you" to all of you. I do have a Question though. I smoked 25 lbs of bacon awhile back and my friends and family loved it. Needless to say it's almost gone. I did a dry cure but want to try pops brine this time. A few people want to supply me with their own pork bellies to do. Is there a way to label them in the bucket while they are brining so I can keep track of who gave me what?

Stick them with plastic colored toothpicks. Or the swords they put in tropical drinks.

Just don't initial too close to the sampling end! :-)  (I call it smoker shrinkage on all meat smoked for others)!
