Annnnd we're back - with the answer to this week's Guess The Mystery Thing challenge. My readers have been trying their darndest to identify the mysterious secret ingredient in these upcycled earrings:
What are those little neon dangles? Think you know it? Did anyone guess? Read on for the fun reveal.
Normally I post my Honor Roll Of Most Creative (Totally Wrong) Guesses. A favorite part of my blog! This time I have to be brief, so I will just point you to the comments in the game - you can see all the cleverness for yourselves.
Okay, here goes.
Lots of excellent guesses - some really smart ones! I am so impressed because I thought I had disguised my Mystery Thing quite well.
Nope! A whole bunch of you got the answer. How on earth?
I hang my head, abashed.
Here ya go!
Cocktail sword handles.
How I did it: I trimmed away all the bits I didn't want with wire cutters - it worked really well, and made very clean cuts. Then I used a thin metal skewer heated over flame, and melted a hole in each one. From there it was easy to make them into dangly little earrings with small connecting jump rings.
Winners, winners! Huge congrats to Divya, the first to get the answer. Yay, D, so excited you won. And our lovely second runner up, chosen by random.org: Candice. Woot woot and wootie-toot-toot to you two. Be sure to look for my email, coming soon.
Thanks for playing, my dears! I'll be back when I can with some more je ne sais quoi.
