You now have 3 layers of brick stitches. For the 4th layer we are stepping 2 seed beads down to have that effect of gradually narrowing the circle and creating half circles, but we’re going to show it on Part 2. We hope the steps and pictures are clear enough for you guys to follow. Watch out for Part 2 to complete the earrings, but we do have a detailed PDF copy already available at DIYLessons.org, which includes arrows to guide you how to weave and a short tutorial how to create the earring hoops, in case you don’t have one similar to what was used in the tutorial.

Brick stitch is a simple way to make complex beaded pieces with irregular edges. It’s best friends with peyote stitch – the beads align the same way, but brick stitch gives you a lot of options for making unusual pieces or adding extra detail to peyote pieces. This tutorial doesn’t make a finished piece – it’s just a variety of useful methods. Do a bit of sample making before starting on a real project, brick stitch is a little finicky.

I’ve been busy this week photographing, pricing, organizing and tweaking all things having to do with my shop, and I am happy to say that I finally have some new items listed! Who knew how much work is/was involved in opening and running an Etsy shop – not me! This whole process is a new learning curve for me, and the more time I spend observing and analyzing things the more confident I feel in the progress that I make. I plan on making updates to my shop and blog all this week, so make sure to stick around!

Of all the variations that can be worked with brick stitch, circular brick stitch is one of my favorites for making unique components and even beaded mandalas for things like bracelets, earrings, pendants, and even delicate beaded necklaces. Circular brick stitch, in contrast to tubular brick stitch, implies that the beadwork is created so that it creates a flat circle instead of a three-dimensional hollow tube.

But in order to not stay completely idle I decided to make some simple brick stitch earrings. I find it I am less inclined to worry about my colour choices and patterns with these pieces and the fact that they are so quick and easy to make, makes creating them very satisfactory which in turn makes me feel a little less useless.

These small brick stitch earrings were made to combine with the below necklace. They are easy to do, using the brick stitch technique, but I like how this technique look like. The necklace below is a reinvention of one I made time ago, but I think look better with the Jasper poppy beads in between the beaded beads.
