My current design project has optional beading along the edging. I have lots of choices for bead and yarn combos. I would like some input on which of the choices is best. Click on the pictures to view larger.

First is Dark Peach Lined Crystal AB with Xie bamboo yarn from SWTC.

Next is Silver Lined Crystal AB with Xie.

These are a Silver Lined Matte Purple with the Xie.

Green with Iris (or AB) Finish  with Xie.

The next yarn is Silver Lined Light Blush AB beads with Marici in Impressionist Sunrise by The Unique Sheep.

Then Dark Peach Lined Crystal AB with the Impressionist Sunrise.

Silver Lined Light Sapphire with Impressionist Sunrise.

And last but not least, Shell Pink Luster with Impressionist Sunrise.

I need one bead choice for each of the two yarns. I would like to have one combo with more contrast and one subtle combo. Please comment and let me know which choices you prefer. Thanks for your help.

All of the beads except for the purple and green came from earthfaire.com. The green and purple beads are from cartwheelsbeadshop.com.

    I like the Sapphire beads with the Impressionist Sunrise

    • I really like that combo too. I am still deciding which direction to work the Gradience. If I decide to start with the peach at the top and the blue at the bottom I will use the Sapphire.
