To what mysterious surface are those flower beads attached? Think you know? Did anybody guess? Read on to find out!
First, Mich's Honor Roll Of Most Creative (Totally Wrong) Guesses:
Shannon: Barbie's belts?
Handmade Cuties: Big toothy gums from someone's skeleton.
Sakura: Popsicle sticks for homemade blood pops, made with boogers and blood, resulting in the white and flat gray color.
Amy: Orthodontia from the cast of The Planet of the Apes!

What the heck is it? Well...it's an 8-foot-long panel of vinyl siding for mobile homes. The little raised loops are ventilation holes punched into the vinyl. Bought it at Home Depot. I cut a small section of the vented part to create my cha-cha jewelry.
Yes, I am exactly that strange.
Originally, I thought I'd do a full cha-cha bangle going all the way around the wrist, with a long skinny piece like this:
But the siding turned out to be really stiff, imagine that! In the end I used small snippets and kind of love the resulting jewels.
Winners, winners! The very first person to guess it, and the top prize winner this week: Lisa W! Our lovely second runner up, chosen by random.org: Nancy! Congratulations to you both - check for my email coming soon.
Thanks as always for playing along, you wonderful people...see you again soon, I hope.
