TOHO Treasure Brick Stitch Triangle Necklace with Tassel
designed byCynthia Kimura
Approximate Size24 Inches
I love brick stitch and I love tassels! This necklace features both.
Brick stitch is a fun way to create all kinds of shapes and patterns in your jewelry designs. Cynthia created a geometric look with a decreasing brick stitch. The point of the focal was the perfect place to dangle a tassel. Once you learn the brick stitch, you can come up with endless variations for this look. See more inspiration for small brick stitch pieces and even some peyote stitch projects in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
Continue to the next row of brick stitch with a decreasing stitch. Follow the color pattern as outlined in fig. 2 of the PDF diagram, using the raspberry TOHO Treasures, TOHO Treasure 11/0 inside-color crystal/opque yellow-lined seed beads, and TOHO Treasure 11/0 inside-color luster crystal/hot pink-lined seed beads.
Use the color pattern shown in fig. 3 of the PDF Diagram to complete your brick stitch focal. When you've added the last row of two raspberry seed beads, add another raspberry seed bead to the thread. Bring your thread through the other seed bead in the last row and back up through the first seed bead in this row. Go back through the added seed bead. Add three raspberry seed beads to the thread, followed by the large red tassel with silver cap, and three more raspberry seed bads. Bring your thread back through the first seed bead in the loop and weave into the brick stitch to secure the thread.
Attach a nine-inch length of silver-plated 2mm petite rollo chain to each end seed bead on the first row of your brick stitch focal (the longest row) using a sterling silver 4.20mm open jump ring for each. The jump ring should fit through the stringing hole of the seed bead.
