I've had these plastic fruit slices for awhile. I thought I knew what I was going to do with them, but then some unforeseen technical difficulties killed that dream. At first I was annoyed. But them I thought, fruit slices, you were meant for more. A few cabochons, rhinestones, and some industrial-strength glue later, and I had a trio of neckpieces worthy of a carnival outing.

Speaking of carnivals, I was watching TBS as I made these (as always) and that Amanda Bynes movie She's the Man was on. For those of you who've seen it, there's that scene where they're at the carnival (for those of you who haven't, don't worry; it's not that important). Everything was nice and clean and cheerful and candy-coated (well, everything except for the creepy kissing booth), and I thought, hey, this is the kind of carnival I'd want to go to, the kind I'm always alluding to in my blog and jewelry listings, as opposed to the dirty, seedy, nightmare-inducing kind that exists in real life.

But enough about the empty promises of movie magic. I'm really liking these necklaces. Especially because they gave me an excuse to pull out my bubble dresses.
