If you follow our Facebook page, you will have seen the rainbow box I made for my daughter-in-law a week or so ago. She’s a nurse and I made the 3D figure by Thread A Bead, but I wanted a way to gift it that she could treasure, so I designed this box.
Since then, I have been working on a way to use the rainbow in a wearable form and this brooch is the first to be finished. I used Miyuki Delica beads and worked it in brick stitch. It could be worked in peyote if you’re a whizz with increases and decreases, although I am also still working on a peyote version. There has been a lot of experimenting with different colour combinations and cloud sizes!
Full pattern is not currently not available for new beaders.
