Design Idea of the Week - Tasty Treat

A classic summer tradition is ice-cream, whether it's eaten plain in a cone or as an elaborate sundae so this week's design idea draws inspiration from the yummy colours of these cool tasty treats.

How about a scoop of rich vanilla bean ice cream (soy of course) drizzled with thick ribbons of caramel sauce to start with? Indulge without the calories with BeadsByStephanie's focal lentil. Wire the focal with some copper wire, then hang the provided acccent beads from the bottom from large to small to make a trail of 'ice cream' drips for a real statement pendant!

Midgetgembead's delicious creamy beads continue the theme, so link a few of these hot caramel drenched delights with some more copper wire:

And of course, no ice-cream is complete without a sprinkling of nuts and hundreds & thousands, so link a few of these crunchy looking, cream beads from helbels in between your other beads:

And for a bit of pizazz, the cherry on top: sals25 has come up with some cute sweetie style beads, and the red ones would make a lovely pair of cherry inspired earrings, whilst the yellow and orange beads can be used as spacers in the necklace to represent Smarties or M&Ms, and pick up the colours in the beads above:

Enjoy this tasty treat, and thanks for looking!
