Nature Findings Rainbow Necklace


You can’t catch a rainbow in a bottle, but you can make a rainbow from bottles full of the colorful things you’ve caught. At least that’s what Apto Art Designs did with this remarkable necklace featuring a red piece of coral, an orange crawfish claw, a yellow feather, a green basil caspia sprig, a blue feather, and a purple flower sprig.

I’ve always loved rainbows. I think it is because they are not tangible, and are rare. They have a mysterious charm to them. Well this necklace shows that appreciation. I put a colorful piece of nature in each little bottle, attached a cork to each, and strung all six on a tarnished silver chain.
