If you were color-blind and someone dumped red and green beads in front of you,
requesting that you make a necklace of alternating colors, could you do it?
Here's the answer:
I took Barb's beads and applied the Vischeck Photoshop color filters for 3 types of color blindness. I think many of us are under the impression that color blindness means that you only see in monochrome, this is obviously a misconception as illustrated:

Some interesting statistics to ponder:
1 in 12 people have some sort of color deficiency.
About 8% of men and 0.4% of women in the US.

0.38% of women are deuteranomalous
(around 95% of all color deficient women).

0.005% of the population are totally colour blind.

0.003% of the population has tritanopia.

Protanomaly occurs in about 1% of males.

Deuteranomaly occurs in about 5% of males.
It's the most common color deficiency.

Protanopia occurs in about 1% of males.

Deuteranopia occurs in about 1% of males.

Perhaps the challenge title shoud be "Monochrome Vision"
