Could anyone tell me what this is called?
I'm curious what this stuff is called? Gold leafing like stuff, the fancy squiggly stuff, theres a word for it but I have no Idea what it is, or what to search for.
By the way this is a section from a painting by Mucha.

Art Nouveau Squiggly Things?
I think you are awesome, and I wish you the best in your endeavors, but I am tired of repeating myself, I am very busy with my new baby, and I am no longer a regular participant here, so please do not contact me to ask for advice on your career or education. All of the advice that I have to offer can already be found in the following links. Thank you.

That might not get you much in a search, but "art nouveau ornament" should.
BTW, Mucha's pattern books have been reprinted, I think by Dover.
EDIT: Yup, here you go.

Aha!! the word just came to me, its filigree, I don't think its the actual term for that type of squiggly stuff when done on art, but used to define jewelery and embroidery and squiggly pattern stuff, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Filigree
Thanks seedling and elwell , art nouveau and ornament were good searches with some good reference, much appreciated.
