Help meri choose beads.

If you’re here, you probably know that I’ve decided to knit the Shipwreck shawl, shown below. (More pictures available by following the link.)

I have ordered the yarn shown below, which is Hand Maiden Sea Silk (70% silk, 30% seacell; the seacell seemed oddly appropriate for the project).

The shawl calls for 5,000 size 8/0 beads. I need help choosing which beads to use. Thanks to a suggestion from Deidre, I’ve narrowed it down to iris beads, which I love. But now, the hard choice: color.

Here’s where you come in.

Let me know which one of these you would go with. Since there are going to be 5,000 of the things, you can choose up to 2 different colors, if you think they’ll mix and match well.

I know which ones (yes, there are two) I’m leaning towards, but I also know I have a lot of artistic, creative, visually-aware friends out there, so give a girl a hand, will ya? :)  

Option A
