You could use only red and white beads (30 of each). There are also some translucent beads that are very pretty.
If you want to make a smaller version for a neckerchief slide or SWAPS, use 12 of each color bead (or 18 red and white) and a 5" chenille. Attach a PVC ring or safety pin using hot glue or a 2" piece of thin wire.
