Verdure Florescence Necklace

I love making lentil flowers and sticking them on flat necklaces, I've done them in all colors and variations by now but I especially love combining them with gold wire, a jewelry making discipline I'm not fairly practiced in but absolutely adore.
This necklace is a herringbone stitch using two different sizes of beads, 6 and 8's...I tried using three sizes but it curves too much and it's hard to keep round. I also love the peridot cabochons...I bought a few a while back and enjoy using them in different designs, in fact, I love all sorts of cabochons but since bead embroidery isn't something I often indulge in, I find them hard to incorporate in general. I love how this came out though, even if I couldn't quite catch it on camera..
