Guess The Mystery Thing: Emerald Green Pendants

Hiya!  There's still time for one more round of Guess The Mystery Thing in 2012 - shall we play?  (For the uninitiated, it's my guessing game giveaway, and everyone in the world is invited.)  Please peep these interesting upcycled necklaces:








What are those big, curvy, emerald green focal pieces?



I can't be sure, but I think this one might be a toughie.  Hint: they are not from any type of hardware or home improvement store.


First person to guess correctly will receive a fabulous prize!  (Namely, your choice of one of these purty necklaces.)



How it works: leave your guess in the comments.  There'll be two winners: first correct guess and a random winner.  That's right, I said random winner - so even if you don't know (or think someone else already got it), enter anyway, you could still win.  If your guess is funny, it might make my Most Creative Honor Roll.



This giveaway is open to anyone, anywhere.  C'mon, join in!


THE ONE AND ONLY RULE

1. UNLESS YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS IS ONE CLICK AWAY IN AN ONLINE PROFILE, PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS WITH YOUR GUESS.

Ready?  Set!  Guess the Mystery Thing!




UPDATE: THIS CHALLENGE IS NOW CLOSED - THANKS FOR PLAYING, EVERYBODY!

The challenge: identify the mysterious secret ingredient in these upcycled jewels.
