Certainly, beadheads can be used in construction of larger saltwater style flies. Several styles come to mind like Tinker Mackerel, Peanut Bunker (Menhaden; Pogie), the various small baitfish grouped into a category called "silversides" (of which baby pogies are a member.) Sliders and divers and crabs; attempts have been made to string beads to imitate segmented worms- though they become more like a conventional lure than a fly dressing at that level.
Use your imagination and let's all see where you go with it. Good Luck!
