Basic Brick StitchA brick stitch is similar to a peyote stitch, but turned sideways. This technique is a bit stiffer than peyote, making it ideal for use in earring designs and small pins. A brick stitch is called such because of the off-set rows made by the beads, resembling a brick wall. The beginning of a brick stitch is made by sewing a series of beads that lay side-by-side, in a technique called the ladder stitch. Layers are added to this base row by sewing through the stitches holding the layer below together. The result is an off-set pattern, or basic brick stitch. First, create a ladder stitch for the base row. Make sure your thread is exiting out of the top of your last bead. If not, simply rotate your pattern so it is.
