I plan to design a few more using metallic gold and silver crochet thread.  Easy method–string on the beads (the first two are 8mm, the last is 10mm). Thread the beads onto the crochet product.  I left the bulk of the thread connected to the open end rather than cutting it in order to not underestimate the length needed.  Crochet a single crochet loop to accommodate the bead size.  The loop should be snug but not too tight.  Close the loop with a single crochet on the starting single crochet and single crochet the bead with an additional stitch between the bead and the thread (alligator stitch).  Repeat until the length desired is achieved.   Weave in loose ends–I used a dab of adhesive on the end so it wouldn’t slip or be visible.  This bracelet can be adjustable by sliding the loop over the bead for the size needed.  Any type of bead or combination of beads could be used that will accommodate the thread passing through the bead hole.  These bracelets work up very fast.
