There are so many ways to incorporate cute little brick stitch patterns into your jewelry designs. With our findings kit, you will have the perfect components to easily add your next brick stitch piece to fun jewelry like these earrings. Cheri made these earrings with the findings kit, and she had plenty of findings left over to make other fun looks. Take a look at the related tutorials below to see what else she made and make sure to watch this Artbeads Cafe episode to learn more about the findings kit.
Create your brick stitch flower focal using the PDF Diagram below. You will be increasing and decreasing the stitch throughout the rows. Start with a ladder stitch near the bottom of the shape (row 1 on the PDF Diagram) and work your way up. The row numbers and arrows on the diagram indicate which direction you are stitching for each row. Then, weave your thread (or use your tail) back to row 1 and add rows 13-15 (if you have your PDF Diagram printed out, turn it upside down once you're ready to work on these rows).
Nice choice! All or most of the products needed for this project are shown below with quantities. Sometimes we sell out of components and aren’t able to order more from the manufacturer (we know, it is very disappointing to us, too). Use the opportunity to mix up the design and make it yours by substituting similar products or altering the entire color scheme—it’s up to you!
