Some designs are simply pure genius.  Take this clever "crossed" chain and bead bangle tutorial over on GioGio & Co.  The bracelet looks like the chains have crossed but they haven't.  It is a very easy technique which is accomplished stringing beads then 2 chain links row by row. Alternating the bead position is the key.

how to make cross chain and bead bracelet

The Italian tutorial also shows how to quickly do the stringing the easy way using a plastic bottle as a form.

It is important to figure out the bangle size before you begin.  Make a fist with fingers extended as if you are about to slip on a bangle.  Then measure the widest part of your hand which is at the knuckles. Once you've got that length, string the first row with bead and chains close together to that measurement.
