Collections: Rainbows

Rainbow Candy Chain Necklace by The Sage's Cupboard

I subbed in some cat’s eyes for yellow, and used white seed beads to make little daisy chain clouds between each set of colored beads. The connections are done with abalone blue lined crystal seed beads - purple looked just a little too over-the top.

And, for even more cheery color, I created this fun collection of ArtFire picks:
