This pretty bead crochet necklace is made with colorful glass beads in colors reminiscent of cotton candy. Looking at it reminds me of delightful trips to the carnival with my family and friends when I was a child. Even as a teenager, I secretly adored cotton candy, and would buy it at every opportunity.
These days, I’m into organic food and a healthy lifestyle; the thought of eating cotton candy doesn’t hold quite the same appeal that it did for me back then. But I haven’t stopped loving vibrant pinks and blues, like the cotton candy colors I remember so fondly.
My wardrobe consists almost entirely of basic pieces in neutral colors and black. I rely on pretty jewelry and accessories for touches of color — so this necklace is just what I need to introduce a bit of brightness into some of my ensembles. The extra sparkle is a nice touch, too.
If these colors wouldn’t work well into your wardrobe, you can crochet your necklace in other colors; just substitute several different beads or bead mixes in colors that you’d like to work with. You can significantly change the whole look of the necklace just by choosing different beads.
