This beadwork named "Rainbow Lei" was created by Laura Shea. It composed of individual and compound frame bead polyhedra and explores a color progression of the spectrum. The lei consists of individual dodecahedra, truncated icosahedra, and twenty-five 'Eureka' beads. The 'Eureka' beads each have an underlying truncated icosahedron serving as the matrix for twelve dodecahedra growing from the pentagonal faces of the truncated icosahedron. A chain of dodecahedra form the pentagonal loop and bar toggle. The single-needle thread path through each polyhedron is a continuous spiral.
