Rainbow Sherbet

Standard

IMG_3731Anyone remember ice cream trucks?
Cups of rainbow sherbet?
Flat wooden spoons?

That’s what this necklace reminds me of.  Running after the truck, coins clutched tightly in hand.  It’s 34 degrees today, probably not a good day for sherbet.

Bead crochet, with an extra beaded bead as a focal.  Another tick off the Unfinished Project list.  Another piece completed.  Feels sooo good!

I made this using circular slip stitch, size 6 beads, 6 around.  It has a nice weight; not too heavy, not to light.  The beads themselves are a mix of finishes – color lined, matte, opaque; all swirled together.  Brass end caps and clasp complete the piece.

  1. Oh, yes, ice cream trucks – fond childhood memories. AND my Mom made so many crochet bead necklaces back in the day. Still love them – knowing made with love by her hands. Thanks for the memories and lovely necklace.
