#722007 Grandmas Salt Beads Recipe - Instruction

Grandma’s Salt Beads


Note:  This was written in 1955.


My grandmother had long strands of pastel colored beads to match each dress. She made them of salt, scented with perfume. When long beads again made fashion news, I searched and found the original recipe in grandma’s fine Spencerian script. Following her recipe, I made a strand of pink beads, scented with Yankee Clover, and a rope of pale lilac, perfumed with Old Spice.


First time I wore a rope of salt beads to my club, I was in the bead business, as all the women wanted at least one strand of a special color.
