Patriotic necklace

I have been wanting to make a necklace in patriotic colors for a while, and I just realized that I had the beads I needed to do it.
I started out just making a bracelet, but I liked it so much, I decided to extend it.  The base is a 2-needle right angle weave done with silver-lined E beads.  After that I wove a diagonal string of blue seed beads and red E beads, then decided to weave it on the back too.  The diagonals on the front and back ran toghter, and making it look like I wound a spiral around the base.  I might have to do this again, using just red seed beads over the silver base, as a candy cane look for Christmas.
