Name this pin please! and other new stuff

I was inspired by the general shape of a flower for this pin design while I laid in bed the other night thinking.The next morning I made this and realized it looked like a lily.

Then I turned it upside down and saw that it looked kind of like a heart.So the rather ridiculous name I gave it is Spiraling Lily Heart Flower Light Weight Aluminum Shawl Pin.
So- I am asking once again for help in naming this pin. If I chose your name then I will let you know and send you one of your very own. I'll be posting this on our FaceBook fanpage too.
This is another new Aluminum Shawl Pin that is taken from our sterling Silver Swirly Flower Earrings and Pendant design.This one is called
Another sort of new item in our Etsy shop is the Infinity Symbol Sterling Silver Pendant.We already had the earrings in our shop (thanks Mimi n Moe's Mom for that great idea!)
I also added the Colbalt Blue Glass Marble and Sterling Silver Wirewrapped Pendant to our shop to go with the matching earrings.
And now for some cute kid pictures-
Henry and Max tested for their orange belts in Taekwando about a week ago. They did great and it was incredibly cute.

I would call it something like Lyre pin or tulip pin, because it looks most like one of those to me.

Of course, since you have already though of lily and heart, adding two more options to the mix doesn't seem all that helpful. It is very beautiful, no matter, your Swirly Flower/ Heart/ Lyre Pin. Yeah, there's the name that will grab everyone's attention.

you know- I was originally thinking of a tulip when i came up withthe idea in my head and then nick said it looked like a lily so i looked up pictures of lilies and got distracted by the lily ide. And then I saw the lyre in there too but couldn't think of the word for it. so i think we are onto the same thoughts and i still have no idea but those are good ideas to throw into the mix.thanks Liz for taking the time to comment at all!

LOL! I was thinking "tulip" too! How about "Hanging Vines pin"???

Karate? Wow! They are getting so big!

Yay for the infinity pendant. I wear my earrings all the time, and get many compliments. I always send them your way!

See, I saw something completely different in it -- it looked to me like King Triton's scepter. (Little Mermaid version:

Also, sort of tulip-like, since I do love tulips.

The next time you experiment, can you toss the "daffodil" idea into the hopper and see what comes up? I don't know if your artistic method works that way, but I guess it can't hurt to ask, right?

I saw a tulip, too, but I also like the idea of an Unfurling Heart. Or, Unfurling Heart Bloom.

Well I sold the first one last night! the customer said it looked like a Lyre to her right away and that was partly why she bought it. We had a facebook fan (tracey) suggest spiraling Lyre. So I have temporarily changed the name to the ridiculous "Spiraling Lyre Tulip Heart Light Weight Aluminum Shawl Pin" but have not committed myself to anything yet. I'm hoping something a little more poetic will appear.thanks for all the great suggestions so far. keep them coming!

The more I look at it the more I think of a staff. I think of Charleston Heston as Moses when he parted the Red Sea!

LOL! Probably doesn't help much....
