About this design:

I decided to use only the two colors and let the shapes and Aurora Borealis finish do the talking. The spiral beads are Czech Glass (and I love them; those were my last 3) with an AB finish, as are the pink drop beads. I added some sterling silver rounds to tie the whole design together.
