Free Brick Stitch Seed Bead Patterns (7/16/2014)

2014 July 16

Brick Stitch is very different from other stitches. While most stitches go through other beads to attach the next row, in Brick Stitch you go under the thread on top of the last row. It takes a little getting used to, but it lends itself to increases and decreases. You’ve probably seen Native American earrings made with Brick Stitch.

My Favorite Hassle-free Brick Stitch Start Fri, 30 May 2014 06:00:00 GMT

I love using brick stitch for designing beaded jewelry, but I’m less than thrilled with the sometimes sloppy feel of beginning my brick stitch projects with ladder stitch. Unless I’m using cylinder beads for my first row, I always feel as though my brick stitch base made with ladder stitch just looks…well, messy with all the threads showing.

It’s been some time since we had a Basic Stitch post so here we are with a brick stitch tutorial!

I’m using Toho size 11 seed beads here.

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.
