Quick Trick Block Stack Necklace
Oh my trying to decide on a Dr. Seuss book! Laughing in the children's section at Borders...Great fun! This necklace was finished in the nick of time for Erin Prais-Hintz's March challenge based on the books of Dr. Seuss. The lighting in the picture is just awful I know. I'll try and get some better ones up tomorrow. The book I chose was "Fox In Socks." Don't ya just love the last page of the book!!!!! This just cracked me up because I realized that the good doctor wrote for the reader as well as the readee. Really do love the turquoise blue and red that always shows up in a Seuss book. In fact that is one of the first things I think of when I think of the books. I let myself have fun making these beads. I left the blocks all morphy with my finger indentations. I really had fun with the squashed rounds. The others are red and white glass and turquoise seed beads. The clasp is made up with another of those fabulous vintage buttons I found antiquing last fall.
