Beading Project

A while back I decided to round out my jewelry/beading repertoire by learning the brick stitch.  I gathered together my size 11 seed beads and other supplies, picked a pattern and got started. 
I'm just a little over half way done.
3600 beads will be used to finish it and since each bead takes two stitches to complete, 7200 stitches.  Beginner project...HA, what was I thinking???


  1. WOW, this is looking stunning. I admore anyone who can do beadwork, I've tried a few small projects in the past and it's just so time consuming and fiddly. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the design too!

  2. Oh my goodness! I'd be going batty! Don't sneeze or get the hiccups. How long did that take to get where you are? It looks like hours and days of work.

  3. That is gorgeous! I'm like that too. I always want to launch into something a bit more complex. Well If I'm going to put the time into it I want ti to be something I'm excited about! You are doing a great job.
