Manuel, do you have experience with designing icons? If not, it may be 
hard at first (for example I acknowledge I am not good at this), there 
are a loot of things to take care, from the metaphor to the style 
(strokes, palette, gradients, lighting, shadows) and technical details 
(pixel alignment, simplified versions for small size) and so.

I strongly recommend you to study the SVGs from 
/usr/share/icons/Mist/scalable/ to get a good understanding of this set 
look and feel.

Have a look at those guidelines to learn a bit: 
https://fedorahosted.org/echo-icon-theme/wiki/Guidelines - sure, they 
are for Echo, not for Mist, but will probably help with some insight.

Another wonderfur resource is jimmac's blog: 

...and don't get scared by what i said above, open Inkscape, give a try 
and show what you got :p
