A Note on Bead Sizes and Brands:

The size and brand of bead you use may affect the final look of the brick stitch bead pattern.  Miyuki Delicas and Toho beads look the best and have a classy feel for brick stitch jewelry.  I prefer the Perler Mini Beads for my bead work.  They brick stitch really well and have a fun and perky look.  Their size also makes for great brick stitch beaded ornaments and key chains dangles.  (My fave to bead.)

Brick Stitch Beading Tip:


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.
