Guess The Mystery Thing: Alien Pod Tassel Necklaces

Heads up, you guys - time for a brand new round of Guess The Mystery Thing!  (It's my jewelry giveaway guessing game, and anyone can play.)   Take a look at this fun upcycled necklace...



Love it or hate it, it does make a statement, doesn't it?

"Take me to your leader."  "I've eaten half the inhabitants of your puny town; I shall gestate for a week, then emerge as a replica of your beloved Aunt Agnes."  "In space, no one can help you accessorize."  

But I digress.  On to the game!  Your challenge: identify these black, alien-pod-like focal pieces.





What are these bizarro things?  I'll tell you right now, they are definitely out there.


First person to guess correctly will receive a fabulous prize!  (Namely, one of these nifty necklaces.  OR a groovy goodie bag of random crafty supplies.)

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), 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!!!  CHECK MY NEXT POST FOR THE EXCITING REVEAL...

  5. Automatic staple removers with the sleek new 2013 design.

  6. It is one of the connectors for the wire grid shelving squares. It makes them into cubes. That is my guess.

  7. Hmm, I have no clue...Maybe it is all of Barbie's melted down records made into a huge rock formation for her front yard. She is into up-cycling. Or strange seed pods from a newly discovered fruit from a tropical island you travel to in your dreams.

  8. Love the pink one. New-fangled floats for the toilet tank.

  9. connectors for metal grid storage shelves

  10. They really look like a connector and it is driving me crazy because when you reveal the secret I'll probably have to smack my forehead and say I should have guessed this one. Would love to win a bag of craft supplies. Thanks

  11. It is a connector. See, in your alien world, they connect their spatulate hands via these connectors and in so doing, become One. You know, sort of like "two heads are better than one?" With these, four heads are better than one... they become One. And they connected four friends. And they connected four friends. And so on... and so on... and so on...

  13. I am so clueless...but one of these days I'm going to guess correctly...and first! I don't even have a good guess on this one, but I do like tassle-i-ness of it!! Like that word?!!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Definitely. Definitely shelf connectors. Not even a question in my tiny-little-unskilled-at-guessing-mind. It helped that everyone else had already guessed it sure. But I knew. I KNEW.

  15. A lemon juicer part? Or maybe a floatation device for a very tiny pet.

  16. Barbie's venetian blind duster. Her blinds are fancy curly-cues, not like our boring vertical ones. She simply attaches the duster to her pink pole, adds some Endust, and away she goes!

    1. 5/19 ....Out there...not even close...hmmm..inside of a kite winder? Fishing pole reel? How about the insert for a roller for a rolling chair...push someone in the chair..and it goes "out there?"

    2. or part of a flying toy..how vague is that????

      Delete
  17. Yeah, okay, I'm jumping on the bandwagon too, connector things for shelving whatchamacallits... But, I was thinking they also look like those little twister things they use to hold toys in place while in the package, in place of the old fashioned, lol, twist ties...
    They could also be Jenga pieces from the future though...

  18. It's the top part of an ant bait, like the Raid ant baits. Either that or a roach motel...

  19. It's the paddlewheel from a miniature steamboat!

  20. I like the paddlewheel answer, but it is taken. So, how about a barstool for the smurfs, without the top. That would look pretty cool, I think. ajp2020@charter.net.

  21. They look like castors to me, the wheels on furniture broken apart. Hmm ...

    ReplyDelete
  22. They look like the connector pieces to the wire bookshelves to me! :-)

  23. Not really alien - I think they're the Sentinels aka Squiddies from "The Matrix" movies.

    1. Locks for tensioning rope/bungee cords on tents and other outdoor gear. Allsock@gmail.com

  24. I'd take a guess but I can't see them clearly enough. Not anything due to the images themselves. I just need new glasses.

    They kinda resemble those black nuts that I can never remember the name of, though. Buckeyes?

  25. At first I thought dart or arrow fletching (the plastic substitute for feathers) but it looks too thick to be that.

    Card stand? Like for business card holding?

    Has someone guessed correct yet?

    1. Those things that hold pieces on board games? XD

  26. EASY! They are the new flying-robot-attack-spaceships from STAR WARS Episode VII...
    They bump into each other and crack lame jokes as they lay waste to entire civilizations
