Help me name this necklace for a contest...

I'm scratching my head trying to name this necklace for a contest that I would like to enter. Could you help? This necklace features hand-made copper wire swirls, with Leopardskin and Poppy Jasper. I'm entering it in the Blockhead Radio Artisan's Challenge, that I heard about on RoseWorks Jewelry's blog. I've decided to get my mind off of the economy, and on to having fun with my craft, so I'll be entering contests and playing around, getting to know other crafters and enjoying myself. Personally, I've been a little blue due to lack of sales, and I know this is almost a universal feeling out there in the handcrafted arena. I also know that a little positive energy transfused into my business will stimulate my creativity and my spirits.

That's where YOU come in. I thought I'd have a contest to name this necklace, the first I've entered into any public contest. I will post when it's up for vote. The winning name will be posted on my Etsy site, my blog, and will receive a free pair of earrings made with the same materials as the necklace set you are naming, complete with the handmade ear wires and copper swirls!

I'll look through the entries on Tuesday after noon US Eastern time and choose a winner. I'd like to get the contest entry in by Tuesday evening. Thanks in advance for your participation!

It's a sweet set. I just love copper. Hope you do well in the contest. I'm terrible at coming up with names for my own stuff. The only thing that struck me was Curly Leopard.

I was thinking along the lines of "Twirling Dervish" or something like that, but wasn't quite sure. Leopardskin jasper was sacred in the middle Americas during the pre-European era, but I still got nothin'. So I thought I'd throw it out for everyone else to comment.

Scotland and africa swirled together, or "swirldly wordly"

"Rocky Shoreline"
It reminds me of lichen or algae, that live of stones by the beach. And "Lovely Lichen" doesn't sound too appealing...

Beautiful set! Good luck with the contests.

How about "Swirling Jasper Dreams."

The first thing that struck me were the warm tones that this necklace evokes, with the reds and copper. So what came to mind was "Indian Summer", which is the warm Autumn weather that occurs after the first frost, usually September or early October up here in my neck of the woods. Good luck with the contest, it is a beautiful necklace!

The swirls of copper remind me of a labyrinth so I'm going to suggest "Leopards Labyrinth" as the name for this necklace. It really is a beautiful necklace and seems to be infused with some wonderful energy.
