Two Row or Peyote Start Two Drop Bead Technique Tutorial Brick Stitch Base Row

Base Row Technique For Brick Stitch Beading

Brick stitch must have a foundation to build from.  There are several ways to create a base row, also known as a foundation row, with beads.  In this tutorial, you will see how to create a Two Row or/also known as a Peyote Start Base Row with a two drop bead technique to create the first row of your bead pattern.  Beaders who are most familiar with the peyote stitch may find this technique more comfortable to use for their base rows.  This beading technique can be done with just about any type and size of seed bead.  However, disk beads, beads with multiple holes, and triangular beads are not recommended with this stitch.  Tube shaped beads, annular shaped beads (like Miyuki Delicas), barrel beads, cylinder shaped beads, crow beads, pony beads, and cube beads work well with the back stitch.

You can watch the following video or scroll down to see the individual slides of how to create a Two Row or Peyote Start base row for brick stitch beading with the single bead technique.
