Doesn’t this necklace look good enough to eat? I think so. It just reminds me of light, happy summer days, when you got to leap about in the sprinkler and eat popsicles for breakfast.
Hmmm. It’s supposed to be 109 today. Popsicles for breakfast sounds like a pretty good idea.
The pattern is from the December 2011 issue of Bead & Button magazine. It’s a modified herringbone which doesn’t present the usual angle when the pattern is stitched. There’s some tricky, but fun needle work to get the direction to change once the drops are added.
It’s made as two separate pieces. One red. One yellow, then they’re combined into a whole necklace. That was the most difficult part for me. I had a terrible time getting the two halves woven together. I kept missing either one of the overs, or one of the unders, getting a glitch – usually right in the middle. Thankfully, Prince Charming came to the rescue, and helped me weave the pieces together. He’s really good at things like that.
