Pattern Details

Peyote Traditionally Brick Stitch Beaded Earrings Back in 1992, I learned my first beading stitch - Brick Stitch. I loved it, I could do ANYTHING in it! I learned from a teacher who didn't do peyote stitch well. Since the normal grid is the same for brick as for peyote, I didn't need to learn it either! But then.... I started making the flat round triangles... and it occurred to me that I could make a traditional diamond earring in peyote stitch. Not only could it be done, but it could be done FASTER and with less thread. This tutorial is geared for a very specific group of beaders. You should get to know regular flat peyote a little first then DIVE IN!!! People that love brick stitch and have issues with peyote stitch. It's for all those beaders out there who turn a peyote graph 1/4 turn sideways and brick stitch it. I have included 30 patterns to try it with (1 in the tutorial and 29 more in a separate document) AND blanks for you to color in for your own designs! 13 & 21 pages to print OR Save paper and ink - Read your pattern on your favorite tablet or e-reader. I keep all my tutorials on my iPad so I can have them with me all the time. I often beaded from my laptop on the table next to where I bead before I had the iPad. All my tutorials and patterns are designed for you to use to create beadwork. I give my permission for you to make and sell things made from my patterns and tutorials. I will never charge more for a tutorial giving permission to sell things made from my stuff. I think it's such a rip off to do that. If you wish to teach my patterns or projects, please contact me and we will work out something. This is a pattern for electronic delivery only. This is for your personal use. You may make items and sell them but please do not share or sell my tutorial. No Refunds

I have been beading and designing for over 26 years and teaching beading for about 25 years. I especially love Japanese seed beads in size 11 and size 15. I was not a delica fan until 2010. They finally have a place in my bead world. I especially love teaching other people about beading. I love the feel and the colors of beads. They sparkle and entrance you. They are very addicting. Stitch I need to learn more about is Ndebele. I will when I have a project that "needs" it. I can do it but don't feel proficient with it yet, also more about sculptural peyote. I have a program where IF you inspire me (suggest) a pattern (that I don't already have) and that I can make and put for sale, you get it FREE and then I make money from them selling to other people. Aside from beads, I also crochet and embroider. I teach locally and that brings me the most joy! Find me surrounded by beads and beaders and you will see a very happy me!
