Brick Stitch Seed Bead Patterns (4/15/2015)

2015 April 15

The Brick Stitch, also known as the Cheyenne Stitch or Comanche Stitch, is a bead weaving stitch of unknown origin in which individual beads are stacked upon each other much as bricks are stacked in a brick wall. The technique has been used by Native Americans and in Africa, the Middle East, and South America… This is an off-loom technique perfected by the Native Americans. It is a relative of another off-loom technique called Peyote stitch or Gourd Stitch. A Brick Stitch pattern can be worked as a Peyote Stitch Pattern if turned through 90 degrees. Wikipedia

For jewelry makers who want to go totally traditional with their animal-themed jewelry, this giraffe print is just the ticket. You’ll get plenty of photos and step-by-step directions for completing the bracelet, so don’t be scared to try it even if you don’t feel like you’ve mastered the brick stitch just yet.

To me, this pair speaks for summer and early fall fashion pairings with its yellow, brown, and red combination. Of course, you can swap out the colors for a different look for each season. I’d love to see pics if you use this pattern for your own beaded creations.

Complete two sections with a brick stitch square on each end and a seed bead scallop in the middle. Then connect the center with a row of 7 8/0s (or any other decorative touch you like). Decrease at each end to 6 10/0 triangles, and attach to clasp. Finish off any loose ends. Remember that it is easy to adjust the length (this one was 6.75”) by adding to the seed bead scallops or adding additional center or end rows.

Dainty Brick Stitch Earring Tutorial Thu, 25 Aug 2011 08:29:52 -0700

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!

I can’t remember why, but for some reason one of my daughters had wanted a little piggie, and I still have the graph, so I’m sharing him with you. Keep in mind, this is from when I first started beading, so it’s a very simple pattern of a piglet on a diamond-shaped background.  I think she used it as a decoration on top of a little box she had in her room. It’s done in brick stitch.
