Thinking about things to go with white (input?)

Thinking about doing the Matrix again in white. Maybe a foot longer, a couple inches wider and it could be a really nice holiday wrap. But I'll be darned if I can find the right bead color to go with white. Needs to be size 6, white or off white with some pearly colors seems like it would be great, but I can't find what I have in mind.
Here's a possibility Size 6 2-Tone Silver Lined Pale Green & Tanzanite Round Japanese Seed Bead, from Fusion Beads. The purple blue and green blue shimmeriness (made up word) remind me of a clean snow field on a bright sunny day after a big storm. It gets nice and cold and there's all this sparkle to the snow that has all these colors in it.
Any thoughts about how it would look on knitpicks Bare merino/silk?

  1. I'm just beginning to experiment with beads. Fire Mountain Gems has an amazing aray of beads. I'm waiting on an order, frosted amethyst and blue/turquoise with brown centers. A friend introduced me to the bead spinner that loads a needle with seed beads. I've been going crazy with it. I'll be posting the results on my blog. Wish me luck.
