Create your own rainbows
The colors of the rainbow, in order, are always eye-catching. The vibrant
colors can make any beaded piece something special.
For a softer look, you can make a pastel version of the rainbow. To separate the bead colors in your rainbow designs, look for accent beads that will not detract from the colors you want to feature. Clear beads separate the colors without breaking the flow. Clear beads with an aurora borealis finish can help mirror the rainbow effect. Conversely, you can use rainbow-colored accent beads to set off larger clear or frosted white focal beads.
A great color to use with your rainbow beads is white, since all of the colors in the rainbow come from white light. The rainbows you see in the sky occur when the white light from the sun passes through millions of raindrops. Each raindrop bends the light into the colors of the spectrum. Red is the least bent color, while violet is bent the most. Here on Earth, you can bend your own light using a prism. Or you can just enjoy the sparkle of the beads you incorporate into your rainbow designs.
I hope you will soon find a beautiful "rainbow connection" in your upcoming beading projects."Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection, the lovers, the dreamers, and me."
