"Riverbed" Freeform Brick Stitch Beading Tutorial #5400 Freeform stitching is kind of like painting with beads! There are no rules, just tips and tricks to make it easier. With the freeform brick stitch technique, you can create absolutely stunning bracelets by incorporating all different types and colors of beads! With this pattern I will show you how to complete several rows of freeform brick stitch, then you will be able to complete the rest of your bracelet on your own. Because it is a freeform project, there is no specific pattern for the layout and bead placement. I will show you which types and sizes of beads I am using and my bead layout for the first several rows. You do not need to use the same beads that I am using. My goal is to show you how to brick stitch and what happens when you incorporate small and large beads into a freeform design. That way, you will understand how the freeform brick stitch works and be able to use whatever beads you'd like in your own bracelet. With over 65 high resolution full color photos and easy to follow step by step directions, you'll be creating your own stunning freeform bracelets in no time! Happy beading!
