When I was in first grade, there was this blurb in our science book about how neon lights are made. I can't tell you anything about the science bit, but I still remember the way that pink flamingo leapt off the page. I've been fascinated by all things neon ever since. Not that that comes as any surprise, especially given this latest bright crop of neckwear.

I made the Fruit Treat and eponymous Bursting with Fruit Juice Flavor Corsage necklaces from Mod Podge-glazed remnants of a tropical Mike & Ikes box. (My but that was a wordy sentence; try saying that five times fast!) I'm really getting into this cardboard-as-jewelry thing. As a matter of fact, I have big plans for a pair of fruit wedge-shaped tissue boxes . . .
