Aurora Borealis.....no I'm not talking about the solar flares or the spectacular displays in the sky! I'm taking the A-Z Blog Challenge and I'm very excited to have my A-Z theme, be related to beads. So to start things off, I'm going to talk a little bit about Aurora Borealis - the simply gorgeous finish you will find on some beads.
Aurora Borealis - or simply known in the bead world as "AB" - is the finish that give beads an iridescent, rainbow-like effect.
|Amybeads - "Aqua-descent" (actually one of the few times I ever named a piece!)|
Also known as 'iris', 'luster', or 'rainbow', there doesn't appear to be an exact science to creating the effect...but the effect can be very dramatic...
...or very subtle...
Whichever you choose it adds a wonderful bit of extra zing to beading projects!
Thanks for stopping by - I am looking forward to exploring beads and my bead world from A-Z!
