I would have preferred a more dramatic surface - even classic black would be more exciting - this white seems dull

The colors are not so vivid, a modification of the saturation probably will get a better photo for this challenge.

This could do with some darker shadows to give more depth.

This is a fun subject but the lighting is very drab. A high key white background would work better to make the colors sing. To do that, simply set your EV mode to a + setting and it will overexpose the white background, reducing the shadow that makes it appear grey. Try a few + stops up until you achieve a good balance--you don't want to overexpose the beads in the process. The grey background drabs down the colors of the beads. Also, try to create a seamless background to avoid the line bisecting the frame. For a subject this small, a piece of white paper taped to a vertical surface with a portion of it resting on the table works fine.

Quality of the pic could be much better.
Putting much more light would also make this pic better and more 'neon'

This meets the challenge but it doesn't seem to hold any particular interest for me beyond that.
