Want to help me choose some beads?

I just spent the most wonderful hour in my studio trying to decide on beads for some new Ribband kits for the Fall!  It's been great fun watching everyone choose beads and yarn for Juego and I was itching to do some yarn/bead play of my own!

A few of the colors were easy to decide on, but this grey teal is driving me crazy as there are SO MANY beads in my stash that look great on it! Want to help me choose?

Which Bead Combination Do You Like Best?
A- Transparent Aqua with gold lining and Valentinite Crystals
B- Emerald AB with silver lined square holes and Emerald Crystals
C- Silver AB with silver lined square holes and Montana Blue Crystals
D- Transparent AB and Valentinite Crystals
I had a fancy schmacy poll here... but it broke down after the first 24 hours... I will tell you that B was the clear winner before it reset itself!

Also, I instagram'd a version of this photo over the weekend... but want to see the after effects of late Sat night stash diving? My studio is kinda a mess right now!

Thanks so much for helping me out!!!!! (ETA- the poll broke, so I had to fix the post... sorry!)

  1. Hmmmm, I'm drooling over your stash. Most of those are my colors, so if you want someone to take some skeins off your hands, I'm your gal! Of course, I usually don't need to be able to grab yarn on a moment's notice like you probably do.

  2. I wish we could rank or vote for more than one. I liked B at first but then decided that it came on too strong and overwhelmed the delicate color of the yarn. I dislike D, I think it's too blah. I voted for A and C is my second choice.

    1. Ha! That's exactly the problem... I like more than one too, and I can only choose one, so it's only fair that the survey is set up that way too : )!

  3. I agree with Justine. A, certainly kept my eye but, I voted for C, because I like the blend. So - one each!

  6. Are they the cones of alpaca-silk lace yarn from Webs? I love their colours!

    1. Good eye! My supplier for the Ribbands isn't milling more, and I've had to switch over!

  7. I love your studio floor! Everyone needs one of those piles to go play in.
    Initially my choice was B and I still really like B; but that yarn seemed to say C to me.

  8. Maybe it sounds silly but it depends on the effect you want with the beads and the project involved. I would use each of the color combos for a different project. No help right?!
