Nothing nightmarish about this beauty! I love the colors and the crackled, mosaic look of it as well as those incredible end-cappy swirls! The bead is so beautiful on its own, that all I wanted to do was create a long necklace strand on which to showcase it.
I tried several times to add some darker blue into the mix (I have lots of lovely turquoise!), but every time I did it somehow took away from the calm, zen-like feel that the softer hues were creating. So, I stuck with the light and bright look and I am so very happy with how it turned out.
