I tried a quick wire wrap using two wires (following the free tutorial for a wire bead frame that I posted yesterday) and adding beads to the frame. It looks nice - as you can see from the picture BUT it really wasn't very easy to do and the bead will spin inside the wrap. So - I'll post my preferred method of achieving this look in the near future.
Of course, if the bead were round, the spinning part wouldn't matter. I still think there are easier methods though.
Happy Independence Day!
