Somewhere Over the Rainbow

Some simple therapeutic stranding of necklaces has been required this week.  I delved into my gemstone collection and sorted out colours to make a rainbow necklace.  I am ashamed to say that I forgot what colours were in a rainbow and had to look it up. Red, Orange,Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet.

I selected gemstones to represent these colours, Rhodolite Garnet (Red), Carnelian (Orange), Citrine (Yellow), Peridot (Green), Sky Apatite (Blue), Iolite (Indigo), Amethyst (Violet).  Just working with all those rainbow colours really lifted my spirits.

Now I just need a pair of ruby slippers and all will be right with my World!

Richard Of York Gave Battle In Vane - Red Orange Yellow Green Blue Indigo Violet. When I was ever asked what my favourite colour was, I always said the rainbow. We drove through a rainbow on the motorway once too.

The necklaclace is beautiful, Simone!I think it means something that you chose this kind of craft to lift yourself up a bit. They say that gemstones have therapeutic power upon us, so, no wonder you needed to touch them and have them around you this week!
