A Note on Bead Sizes and Brands:

The size and brand of bead you use may affect the final look of the pattern.  Miyuki Delicas and Toho beads look the best and have a classy feel.  While on the pricey side, they are well worth the cost in how easy they are to bead and the beauty of the finished beadwork.  For the larger patterns, to make earrings, I suggest using size 11 or 15 Delicas.  I prefer the Perler Mini Beads for my beadwork.  Along with a low price tag, they brick stitch really well and have a fun and whimsical look.  They are also great for beaders who don't see well or young beaders who might have trouble with tiny beads.  Their size also makes for great brick stitch beaded ornaments and key chains dangles.  (My fave to bead.)

Brick Stitch Beading Tips:

For your base row, start with the row that has the most beads.  Then, brick stitch up the pattern.  Once the top portion is complete, move your thread down to the base row and brick stitch the bottom portion of the pattern.  This pattern can be beaded with brick stitch, peyote, and gourd stitch beading techniques.  Print out the pattern and decide which row will be your base row.  Then, number each row of the pattern so it is easier to follow and track your progress.  This allows you to personalize how you brick stitch your pattern a little more.
