Sample by Kate Richbourg and Emily Miller

Looking across the high desert of the American Southwest, the morning earth is still damp from the rain of passing clouds. Look up and you might discover a rainbow reaching across the horizon…life is beautiful, isn’t it? Nature is letting you know a day like today is very special. You feel like you could float away! In Rainbow Float Away, each section can be made with random abandon or laser precision…it’s up to you!

Project Map

Please note, the larger Picture Jasper beads used here are no longer available. You could replace them with..
-A different Picture Jasper Shape
-A Czech Rectangle ...see how Janice uses this shape in her version of the Soft Flex Float!
-A larger Czech Glass shaped bead such as Leaves, Flowers, or Nautilus

The true beauty of this 5-strand design is that you can be random with varying lengths or make something very symmetrical and it all looks great! Kate and Emily begin each strand by cutting 5 lengths of Soft Flex 24 inches each. The finished length is approximately 17-18 inches.
