Brick Stitch Rosy Topaz Earrings

Brick Stitch Design Idea...This design is really simple...basically a decreasing brick stitch!


I played around with several different bead combos before finally ending up with this one.

I made these earrings as a gift for a friend without knowing if the color was compatible with her fashion tastes. It was!

Here are the components and a few notes:

BASE: 9 - Gold-lined Crystal 4mm cubes. (Toho) Ladder Stitch

NEXT ROW: 8 - 6mm round beads (rocaille) from Kintaro Bead Mix (Toho). Decrease. Brick Stitch
TRIANGLE : 28- Transparent Rainbow Smoky Topaz 4mm cubes (Toho). Decrease. Brick Stitch.

THREAD: Fireline "Crystal" .006. (Probably should use .008, a bit lighter thread. But .006 is ok.)

Note: All the beads in this design are stitched so holes are perpendicular to the base (facing top of pic), EXCEPT last bead at very top...can you see?? It goes parallel to base so you can put a jump ring in it.

And, yes, these are clip earring findings, my friend's preference. But you could just as easily use hooks.

Background: A lace camisole I have yet to alter!
