Brick Stitch. 3D Tutorial

Rate this item
(1 Vote)

Brick stitch looks very much like peyote, only turned sideways. The way it is stitched, however, is quite different. Brick Stitch is a handy stitch to know because it is somewhat stiffer than peyote, making it a good choice for earrings and small pins. it also handles irregular shapes somewhat better than peyote.

Materials:

  • Beads;
  • Beading thread;
  • Needle.

Brick Stitch. Beading Tutorial. Step 1 

You need to create a base row for your beadwork (create a bead "ladder").

String on two beads, pull the thread into a circle so the beads sit side-by-side.

Go back down through the bead №1 and up through the №2. (1)

Add bead №3 to yor thread, go back up through the №2, and back down through the bead №3 again. (2)

Add another bead, go through the bead before, and then back through the new bead again. Keep repeating this process until you have added bead №6. (3)

When you finish a row, make sure you are coming out of the top of the last bead.  (If you're coming out the bottom, you can simply turn your ladder over so that the thread is coming out of the top.)

Add two beads №7,8 and take your thread underneath of the thread joining the №6 and №5 beads in your first row and up through the bead №8. (4)

Thread on one more new bead (№9) and go under the thread joining the top of the next two beads (№5,4) in your first row. Come back up through the new bead. Continue adding beads this way until you come to the end of your row. (5,6)
