I started doing the spiral rope weave with Czech size 6 seeds beads. The only materials needed for this project are beads of contrasting color, thread, beading needle and small scissors. For the seed beads, the colors I chose were pink ceylon and off white. I still haven't decided if I want to make a clasped necklace or a lariat. For now, I would continue weaving the beads until I make up my mind. What's nice about this project is that I can keep adding thread to it until I am fine with the length of the necklace.
Here's a closer look at what I am doing right now:
