It’s no secret that I’m an admirer of rainbows. And I understand that one of the reasons rainbows are special is that we don’t get to witness them every single day.
But some days, you’re in need of a bit of rainbow. We all have days that can use a bit of colour, happiness, and magic. And sometimes, you simply can’t wait for a rainbow to appear in the sky. If so, you might need to create your own magic.
To do so: carefully select and collect beads in all the colours of the rainbow. Add a pot of gold in the form of different necklace-related supplies. Perhaps add some stars from a far-away galaxy.
Then, start creating colourful orchestrated strings. I’ve always loved the colourfulness and intricate textures of African beaded jewellery. They inspired the look & feel of this necklace.
Go on, until you have a beautiful, colourful, happy rainbow!
The awesome thing about this rainbow, is that it will follow me wherever I go.
And whenever I feel I could use a little colour, I can simply open my closet to get it out.
Who else could use a little rainbow disco in their life?

This is adorable! I am just a teenager and have been reading your blog for about thirty minutes but it’s so awesome! I love that everything seems so youthful and fun. I’ve never enjoyed how children want to grow up faster

That’s awesome! I feel the same way. I remember as a little girl not wanting to grow up, it just didn’t seem as fun to me as being a kid haha.

This means so much to me that you say this! Sometimes it feels like I am the only kid who is not in a rush to get a job and make my own mark in the world. I know this isn’t true and I also know I’ll get there someday but for now it seems very true. I also think your butterfly cloche is very cool by the way

One of my favourite quotes is “We don’t stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing.”. I think the art of life is about maintaining a certain level of lightness and playfulness even though circumstances become more serious. :)
