I made these many years ago.   I used size 10 cotton thread and seed beads.

The pattern is at JPF Crochet
Seed Bead Necklace

This beaded bracelet was made from a kit.
I seem to have misplaced the pattern ... I made it quite a while ago.
I believe it is called Spiral Beaded Crochet
and instructions are available on line.
