Next time I will add beads to all the strands - this looks like a spiral, and while it would make a nice bracelet, I am hoping to get the look of a bead crocheted piece.

Kumihimo with beads........
Since I already had the bobbins loaded (leftover from my first project) I decided to add beads to the mix. I used two different colors; size 6/0 seed beads; and I added them to 4 of the eight strands. I read somewhere that you should figure on 10 beads per inch of braid, so I loaded on 70 beads per strand thinking I would get enough length for a bracelet, but I ended up with a length of beaded braid that is about 10" long.
