We should not strive to invent icons different to the ones used in MediaWiki. Please have a look at those icons first:

(I guess the latter one is "more current".)
I doubt it makes sense to design dedicated icons for "add [qualifier|reference|statement]". A generic "add" icon should be sufficient as long as it is ensured that the context can be identified by the user.

Nice, could you please choose those who are fitting best?

There my be a need for create new ones for those:

  • add qualifier
  • add reference
  • add statement

  • edit = Edit
  • save = Check
  • remove = Remove
  • cancel = Would prefer Close over Cancel
  • add = Add (May also be a new icon of "Edit" with a "+" sign (compare to "EditLock"))

For being used in Wikibase, it might be nice if the icons were a bit bolder. Anyway, I would just give it a try.

Unassigning myself while this is subject to discussion or investigation.
