While I was working on a Crochet Challenge project, I made a couple of prototypes.

 


They're crocheted with Perle Cotton and wrapped-loop beads (top) or plastic lemon beads.

These are just beautiful, and very well crafted!  Impressive Grin Grin Grin

How did you attach the beads? Are they worked in to the the crochet as you go, or did you attach them after the fact?

Thanks for your encouraging comments! (I'll have to remember the lemon-to-lemon lesson.) Cheesy

The beads are strung on thread first. I'm not fond of string beads and first tried inserting the beads as I worked. This wasn't hard and had an interesting effect, but turned out to be a serious flow-interruption. The flower beads I made with wrapped loops and the lemon beads are plastic with large holes. (I wanted the beads to move some.) Instructions are on the Crochet Challenge board. You can easily adjust them to whatever you have on hand. Cheesy
