1. A light-emitting structure, comprising:

  • a plurality of light-emitting diodes each having an anode and a cathode and each configured to emit a respective color of light;

    a plurality of resistive members spaced over at least one of said anode and said cathode of each of said diodes wherein each of said resistive members has a different resistance;

    at least one conductive contact carried on each of said resistive members; and

    a conductive wire coupled through a contact to a respective one of the resistive members of each of said diodes to thereby form an interconnected string of diodes that will each carry a respective current when a voltage is applied to said wire.
