I don't know if it's the flash, but the gold looks very washed out. Did you go straight over the white with it? Even if going for a light colour, over black or brown I've heard gives a nice result with depth in.
As for the sword, well, I think that the gold sword is a little too much gold in one spot. Being a very bright silver with gold edging on the blade might be a bit better I think (again over a black base).
