New Necklace

This morning I put the finishing touches on a new necklace. This was a pattern in an old Bead & Button magazine. However, it's basically freeform and after a while I just did, whatever I thought would look good.  The base of the necklace is not as densely beaded as the one in the magazine, and I like it much better. It has a delicate and lacey look to it. I also used different size and colored fresh water pearls. I was very excited to find extremely tiny seashells to give it a "from the sea" look.  Which is so perfect for Hilton Head Island. Now I need a name for it. Any suggestions? I'm terrible at naming things I make.
