Color Block Beaded Necklace

I've been so busy cranking out orders for my etsy shop, I rarely have time to make something special for myself. My Europe trip is slowly approaching, and calls for some a new punchy accessory to take abroad.

When I received an email from Fusion Beads for 30% all wood beads, I jumped to the opportunity for a great deal (when do I not?!). Here is my piece - a chunky color block wood bead necklace. Let me know if anyone is interested in a full tutorial!
