I love using coloured wires with clear crystal beads. The wire shows the colour through beautifully and then I love to set them off with really sparkly Swarovski crystals. These are crackle beads - I need to get some more decent thick wire to use with the rest of my crystal beads. Below is pink and gold based.
Also used some gorgeous tropical 'fruity' beads to make a scrummy charm bracelet plus some earrings. Here's the bracelet.
