Guess The Mystery Thing: Five Petal Flowers

Heya!  Let's do a scroll-down version of the Guess The Mystery Thing game!  I'll show you some upcycled jewelry.  You'll try to guess the mysterious secret ingredient.  No peeking until you think you know the answer!

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.

BOOM!


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!
