I also made a gemstone flower using a faceted black onyx center with the same coated labradorite beads and one that uses a rounder center bead of faceted opaque red garnet. It looks a bit like a low grade ruby in this picture - but it is garnet. It is surrounded by hematite rondelles.
All of the flowers use a technique that is based on the herringbone weave. The first wrap around the stone is used to frame the stone and the second holds the beads. Ending the wires is a little tricky though - and on the two flowers above - you may not be able to tell that I folded the base wire up behind the flower to hold the wraps in place and end the flower neatly. It is less of a problem with the ones that have the wrap loop finish - like in the first picture.
