What's in a name?

Some designs just scream out for a name. something other than Byzantine links and rings. Simple. Appropriate. But it doesn't evoke what the piece really looks like. I've been calling once such piece I made Byzantine Scallops. Appropriate, but not evocative. At a recent show, a little girl came up to me and told me I made pretty Seahorse Bubbles. I looked at her in puzzlement until she pointed out the aforementioned earrings. So, do I keep the name Byzantine Scallops or rename them to Seahorse Bubbles? I'd love your opinion and here's a picture of them. Tell me what you think.

    I think that Seahorse Bubbles is just perfect. But should you not have made them in mirror image? Maybe you can turn one of them the other way on the earwire?

    You know Anne, I didn't even think of that. It should be easy enough to flip one as you suggest. I want to take a better picture of it anyway. :)
