Cubic Right Angle Weave Rope

I've been having in mind for quite some time to try to create a cubic right angle weave rope following the instructions Nancy Dale provides in a free tutorial she wrote on her blog. The specific post can be located here. I highly recommend anyone, who haven't already, to read it :)

This project was actually really fun to play with. Especially creating the bead-soup! I chose a couple of colors that I really thought looked well together, then I added some more in different sizes and shapes of beads. I basically used 15/0's, 11/0's, 8/0's, 6/0's, triangles, hex cut beads, 3mm firepolished Czech glass beads, 8mm firepolished Czech glass beads, 4mm Swarovski bicones, tear drop beads, blue goldstone chips and dyed freshwater pearls.
The rope I created is about 80cm (31.5") and only goes one time around the head, but can be knotted etc. as I discovered when I was playing around with it :P

Nice combination of colors!

I borrowed a library book on RAW, and I've been trying to figure out what to do with my seed bead mixes.

Thanks for the suggestion!
