Green bead necklace

A while back, they had these bracelets at Target with big green beads and little chinese coins as spacers.  I liked the little coins and cut the bracelet apart to get them, and then had no idea what to do with the beads.  They are a strange green color, unlike any of my other green beads.

Today I was looking at a different dubious purchase, a small packet of reject beads that I got on clearance.  As sometimes happens when you have glass beads in a little baggie, there was glass dust in the bag which made the beads look dusty and ugly. I have seen it often enough to know that these are real bargains - the glass dust cleans off easily, and the beads look great once you can see them.  So, I had this 50 cent bag of little glass beads, and I was trying to figure out what to do with them, and I looked at the green beads, and it hit me.
I couldn't get it to lie neatly in the scanner, but basically it is four strands of these purplish little beads held together with the big green beads.  The purple and green are both off in the same way, and it really works.  Sometimes I surprise myself.
