Swatches and muffins

In case you hadn't noticed, I love to bake.
I'm making buttermilk dried cherry muffins right now.
I'm also thinking I  like my pattern, but maybe these aren't the right beads:

The sample is very small, I know.  I'm thinking maybe I want to use matte beads, so they look like sea glass.
I need votes . . . .
What about these? http://www.fusionbeads.com/shop/product/27565/
and these


  1. Hi, big reader here, few comments! I think the beads you have are perfect - noticeable but subtle. Classy.

  2. Thanks! Even though this one is slow going, it's loads of fun. I really love all these beads, but I'm not sure if I'm quite getting the effect I want. I have some lovely purple I want to make a flowers shawl from, I might use those dark sparkly ones there . . .
