Ajdjss Guild Challenge "Red, White, and Blue"

The Ajdjss Guild was presented with a challenge in honor of the 4th of July, the birthday of the U.S., by "Emily of Exquisite Studios". The Challenge-" Create an item in all red, all white , and/or all blue." You could enter an item in each or all of the categories. But, of course, being human and imperfect, a few of our guild members made an item with all 3 colors. Oh well, what else is new??? LOL
So, because of this imperfection, we now have a 4th category for items of all 3 colors. One thing you can say about the Ajdjss Guild we may be imperfect but we sure are flexible!
We have 31 entries in all--yep, we do. Each is a winner on it's own. Congrats are in order for all of you who participated in this challenge--just pat yourselves on your right shoulder for a job well done. :o)
Okay, let's get serious. Below you will find the entries for each category with the studio name.
Look carefully at each entry in each category and pick the item that you favor the most. You will have 4 favorites that you will post in your comment at the end of this article with each studio name.
Yes, I know, this is a very difficult decision for us-- all and why you ask? Because we are just one hell of a fabulous talented group of artisans--WooHoo!!!

Okay, let the games begin--or rather let the vote begin.

"For the Love of Green"

In honor of St. Patrick's Day we are having a "treasure hunt" to find the "pot of gold" at the end of the rainbow. Actually it's a pot of earrings at the end of the rainbow--

Now , how do you go about finding it?

Well, you have to read each clue that I have provided below and locate only 12 green items that fit 12 of the clues.

All the studios (and then some) with the items are listed below. Just click on the studio to be taken to the front page where the green item to answer your clue will be found.

When you have all 12 items you are to place a comment below stating that you have found the items and the studios that you found them in. Then you will contact me through my studio to list all 12 items. Do not list the items below--hey, after all that work you don't need to share--it's okay not to share here!

REMEMBER: there are 20 clues listed but you need to find only 12 of the "pieces of green treasure!

There will be 3 winners of a pair of "green earrings" each. This "green" hunt will continue through midnight of St. Patrick's Day.

All correct entries will be put on a separate sheet of paper and then placed in a bowl--3 of the papers will be taken out at random to find the 3 winners. Good luck and have fun.

Here are your Clues:

1. It's green but really chunky...

2. It's got swirls of green...

3. It's a tiger iron heart...

4. It's emerald but not an isle...

5. It's a frog but it's not green...
