If you like working with a small hook and fine yarn or thread, then beaded crochet might be a specialty area of crochet that you want to try. Basically, the beads are first strung onto the yarn or thread, then worked into the crochet, one by one. Alternatively, you can still add beads once you've started the project by pulling a yarn loop through the bead hole using a very small crochet hook or a wire and then slipping your crochet hook into the loop and completing the stitch.
Beads are often used when creating crocheted jewelry or evening bags, but the possibilities are endless! Just search "bead crochet" and all sorts of demonstrations, instructions and resources pop up.
