And Again

Even though I have already made up my mind about this one (I like it), I still think it's a good idea to make it again using different beads. Different finishes, different types of colours (inasmuch as "different" may not be all that different from another shade of muted <something>).
Still, this was useful.

Although pretty in the photograph (there's the shiny) I don't care for the transparent pinch beads in real life quite as much as the matte finish in the first version. You get a reflective and colourful effect, but the slightly strange effect of the surfaces of the pinch beads in this design is mostly lost, although you can sort of see it in the dark beaded bead in the front of the picture on the right, and then again in the one four away.

So the next time I go shopping for pinch beads (and I have in mind an experiment in structure rather than colour) I know what sort of finish will help me reach a conclusion about which versions I like better.
