Ready? Check out the pretty red bauble...
The Mystery Thing is that five-petal, open-edge flower. Hmm, yes...gosh, it does look familiar. What is that thing?
Got your guess in mind? Great. Now scroll down to see the answer.
Here it comes...
A trumpet flower from a broken hummingbird feeder! Found it in the 'free' box at a yard sale. I love the free box. There's often something wonderful to be transformed or repurposed.
For the bracelet above, I cut off part of the flower to create a low-profile focal piece. Here's an alternate style, using the full length of the trumpet:
Pretty cute, eh? I shall wear it in the garden. I fully expect to attract hummingbirds.
So. Did you guess right - or were you way off base? Do tell!
That is so cool, Michelle and I would have never guessed what it was.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Shannon! Maybe you didn't know this one...but I am certain your guess would have been crazy awesome.Delete
I finally guessed one!! I have that same hummingbird feeder and I just cleaned it and put it away for the winter, otherwise I might not have recognized it. Very pretty!ReplyDelete
Very clever !!! I wouldn't have guessed, anyway , but it is a great idea , as usual !!!ReplyDelete
I was completely clueless and just gave up. Glad you filled us in right away on this one because I don't like being stumped for long. Lovely!!ReplyDelete
I would never have guessed what that was - but the flowers look gorgeous in jewellery - as do all of your creations!ReplyDelete
I did not guess but I am, as always, impressed!ReplyDelete
it looked familiar, but I thought it was from a xmas ornament. What is the bracelet base?ReplyDelete
Hope you have a wonderful week!
