Caterpillar emerging

When choosing the beads for Caterpillar bracelets, I felt a contrast in texture would be beneficial, and picked the yellow/pink/orange sparkly mix for the top beads in the pink bracelet. However, once I'd got going on it, I didn't think much of the twinkly fairy-light effect and reconsidered. Fortunately, my bead stash provided one or two alternatives, from which I chose a matte pinky toned replacement - a little safe, but more to my liking than the original idea.
Do you agree?
