Herringbone with Toho triangles

I owe a 20-something male a necklace, sort of. He broke one I made for him when he was a teen, just wore it out. He asked me to fix it, and make it longer, but I no longer have one of the beads, so I made him something different instead. I was looking through my beads for something that looked like it might appeal, and I picked these Toho 11 triangles, and then went looking for some little blue beads. Triangles are used 6 around, usually, in herringbone ropes. I was curious to see what it looked like with 4 — and then added a blue bead between each stitch. I rather like it. It’s got a bit of a flattened profile, but I think it looks best twisted, like below.
