Neon Brick Stitch Earrings
Designed by: Dee Wingrove-Smith
Choose your three 8mm neon beads and using 1 wingspan of nymo to match the size 11 seed beads, thread your needle and pass it through the first 8mm bead leaving a 6cm tail.
As per Steps 4-6, you start your second row with 2 seed beads and this time you pass your needle under the thread you can see between the seed beads on the base row. Then continue to add seed beads one at a time, if you find yourself with a large gap, then you can add a second seed bead using the same thread gap and then continue on a normal.
Finish your second round as per Step 7. Move your needle to the tail thread and weave through the beads a few times, knotting if you feel the need, and then trim close to the beads. Leave this first bead for now. Repeat Steps 1-8 for two more 8mm beaded beads, but also weave in your working thread on the second two 8mm beaded beads.
Repeat the joining process creating a picot and then joining to the third 8mm beaded bead. Once this is completed, weave back up through all three beaded bead units, locate the centre 2 seed beads on the outer edge, pick up one size 8 seed bead and weave down the second centre seed bead, reinforce the thread path once more and then weave through some sb’s in your brick stitched row and knot off and trim your thread.
