Brick Stitch »
Type of item: Accessory
Style: Funky, Cute, Whimsical
Any metal round or oval disc bead or link, seed beads in 8, 11 and 15, fire line, ear wire
What was your inspiration?
I found a different tutorial and it was a style like this of an oval pendant and I have had these round bead frames that I never knew what to do with. So I found the tutorial on Fusion Beads I adapted it to fit my bead frames and I was so happy with how they turned out I made another pair in red. Just switching the color made a huge difference in them and I am proud that they are both easy ans fun to make.
What are you most proud of?
That I was able to adapt the tutorial to my materials that were slightly different and it came out right the first time!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Make sure to keep tight tension on the thread and watch how the beads are sitting and adjust tension and even add a smaller bead in to a odd gap if needed. If you are working with an oval there will be a few smaller gaps around the shorter curved section where you will need to add smaller beads to keep the flow.
