And this other necklace, and this ring:
Oh, and some earrings, too.
What on earth is the original source for these delicate, delightful fleurs? I will say, this is kind of a strange one - I'm not sure anyone will get it unless they have actually seen this item in person. Good luck, everyone.
Reminder: we are playing on the honor system, dearies. Noooooo peeking until you have a guess. Only then may you scroll.
Ready? Think you know it?
Aaaand the answer is...tada!
The world's most ornamental iPhone case. From the dollar store!!! (The 99 Cents Only store, to be exact.) They are made of silicone. Can you believe how pretty they are? They come in a bunch of yummy colors. With some careful cutting, I harvested three different size roses from each case.
Cool, eh? I am partial to the ring, although it's such a strange green and goes with nothing I own. But it looks spectacular on.
Here's a tip on using silicone items in jewelry making. Learned this the hard way! Do not use a sharp object to poke a hole for jump rings. Over time, the poked hole will split, and your piece will fissure/disintegrate/fail spectacularly. (This won't happen for about a year - you will be lulled into thinking you made a wonderful jewel - then RIIIIIP!) So what to do? You can't melt a hole - they make fireproof potholders out of this stuff. Answer: punch a smooth-edged hole with a leather punch.
That's what I did with the earrings above, as well as this dangly necklace:
So now I want to hear what you guys thought it was...anybody get this one? What was your guess?
