Guess the Mystery Thing: A Brooding, Industrial Pendant.

Yipee!  Time for another Guess the Mystery Thing challenge!  Guess correctly and you could win one of these jewels - if you like them, that is.  I do - although it's not my typical style of upcycled jewelry.

I am mostly known for giddy gewgaws, usually made from neon-pink plastic or some kind of candy colored  recyclable.  But I can be dark!  I can be tortured!  Check out this brooding pendant:



And this one:



What, oh what, are those industrial looking octagons?  I wonder if anyone knows?




Notice the use of depressing props, to indicate I am a tortured artiste, filled with angst, ennui and weltschmerz.  Perhaps I mean weltanschauung.  Anyway, I am full to the brim with those.

Or not.


Hee.


Leave your guess in the comments.  There will be two winners: first correct guess and one random guess.  If nobody gets it, there will be two random winners.  So even if you're stumped, guess anyway, you could still win.  (The crazier the guess, the better!)  This giveaway is open to anyone, anywhere.  (You don't even have to be a follower of the blog, although I would lurve it if you were!) 

The one and only rule: 

1.  If your email isn't available in one click from an online profile, be sure to include your email address with your guess.


Okay, here goes.  Ready?  Set!  Guess the Mystery Thing!

UPDATE: THIS CHALLENGE IS NOW CLOSED.  THANKS FOR PLAYING, EVERYBODY!  REVEAL COMING SOON.

  1. It's a Beyblade battle ring--a part of a Beyblade. Right? My boys are extremely certainly and can show me theirs! ;)

  2. Angst, Weltschmerz und Weltanschauung? Heck, lass, you sound like my 13 year old German self!! I have decided that I shall not volunteer a guess right now, as mein Weltschmerz haelt mich davon ab, mich an Spielen zu beteiligen, die der generellen Erheiterung dienen. HA!! :D x

  3. I don't know if there are dollar store generic Beyblades, so to clarify, it's the part of a child's spinning battling toy, the ring that goes around the outside of it.

  4. I'm not sure, but I think it might be the thing that goes around a light switch before you snap the light plate on. Or something from the electrical section. Hmmm...I wish I knew teh proper names!

    PS: I love your props. The bullet and Hemingway are ultra "brooding"....but the monkeys take the edge off :)

  5. Some sort of ring used in medieval times to exact disciplinary action upon uber angsty teenagers... I honestly have no idea what these are but the necklaces are GORGEOUS! Bonus points for not misspelling it "midevil"? *winkwink nudgenudge* :D Anyway, beautiful work, as always.

  7. That's an essential part of a T-fighter! I mean, just look at the shape!

    .oO(Should I say that I am visiting the WGT for years now... mh... lets say since I am seventeen or so. I love a lot of the "Weltschmerz"> music ;))

  11. Whine. Now I want to win because I LOVE the monkey bead. Ummmm, it is part of an oil filter, yeah, an oil filter for filtering coconut oil. That's right, an oil filter for extracting coconut oil from coconuts... for monkeys. Did I win?
    (My clever brain isn't with me tonight. I left it at work.)
    Those monkey beads are super cute. Did they help you make the jewelery?

  12. Okay, you most definitely took those off of my sister's uncle's cousin's next door neighbor's time machine.

  13. I once tried to fix a small electric kitchen unit (I don't know its proper names) and when I was done with it, I had a screw and something that looked like this left over. Somehow the unit was working without it (before it fell completely apart 2 days later...) so I believe it's an special item designed by men to confuse women who try to deal with electricity on their own!

  14. These are awesome! Love them!
    This is my guess: An evil, mad genius designed some small robots to keep him company. He made them to be as "human" like as possible, including having bowel movements. This part is the b.m.!

  16. Is it something from a bike? Or is it something you got from the dentist to hold your fake teeth when you sleep at night?

  18. It is a defibresisting cappitellic martelibator for use in electrical devices to stop the current from travelling through a resistor and entering a capacitor. Easy.

  19. It's the missing part from the TARDIS that forces it to continue looking like a 1960's police phone box.

  20. You certainly stole a device that links firemen's pipes together , and now there's a flood in your neighbourhood ...

  21. A spinal disc from a robot that traveled through time and landed in your backyard.

  22. You know the copper pipe people in the incontinence commercials? I think one of them lost these in a wardrobe malfunction.

  23. I'm guessing, dear tortured soul, that they are plastic holders so bullets won't bump against each other... you gave us a clue? Anyway, I do like the pendants... whatever they are.

  24. I love your stuff and have never actually commented to tell you so, so.......I love your stuff! There I said it!! I think the "dark" pendent is a small head gasket???

  31. It's part of one of those Bionicles...no wait, they're called Hero Factory now.

  32. It looks like the winding core from a giant clockwork steampunk scarab discovered in the temple of Anubis in the late 1800's. Luckily you have dissembled it into component pieces else it could have been used as a terrible weapon and taken over the world x
