DIY Brickstitch Beading: Christmas Parol Earring Pattern Sat, 30 Nov 2013 09:00:13 GMT

Today, we’re going to make a popular Christmas ornament found in Asia, particularly the Philippines – the Christmas Parol Earrings! Also called Lanterns, Parols are big stars made of paper and bamboo. They are believed to be the Star of Bethlehem which guided the 3 kings with its long tail of rays as they travel to Jerusalem to witness the birth of Christ. Hanging a Christmas Parol signifies that Christmas season is coming.

Brick stitch, aptly named for the way the beads sit like bricks in a wall, has to be one of my favorite all time stitches. After building my bead vocabulary with lots of techniques, I still rely on brick stitch in its many forms for most of my signature designs. Brick-stitched beadwork is sturdy. Unlike the fluidity of a strip of peyote, a strip of brick will hold its shape. Brick stitch allows for architectural shapes that remain stiff, yet will roll up in one direction to make tubes, bails, etc.

These earrings are done using a combination of two drop and single brick stitch. You will be starting in the center of the earring. Start by stringing 4 beads. You will do a ladder stitch, creating 9 rows of two beads in each row. Next you will work your way up.

Going Round in Circles with Circular Brick Stitch Thu, 18 Jul 2013 07:00:00 GMT

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.

The very first thing I learned to bead was a pair of brick stitch earrings. I learned from thin book that I have since lost track of, but I got hooked and made every pattern in multiple colors. I’m starting to see them in retail stores, and thought it would be fun to create a cute design and share the tutorial. I hope you enjoy making them for yourself or a quick gift!
