Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

1. Thread your needle with about 4ft of C-Lon size AA thread. Go through the jump ring moving from front to back.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

2. Add two size 11/0 seed beads.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

3. Holding the beads and thread against the back of the ring, pass back through the ring going from back to front.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

4. With the needle and thread still at the front of the ring, go up through the 11/0 on the right.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

5. Pull tight so the 11/0 sits securely against the top edge of the ring.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

6. Go down into the 11/0 to the left passing behind the ring.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

7. Bring the needle through the ring to the front.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

8. Now pass up through the same 11/0.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

9. Moving counter clockwise string on one 11/0 seed bead. With this 11/0 held in line with the first two, bring the needle through the ring going from back to front.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

10. Bring the needle up through the 11/0 at the front of the ring. The new bead should fall into line next to the first two as the thread is pulled tight.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

11. Continue counter clockwise until there are a total of sixteen 11/0 seed beads attached to the ring. There should be a small space in between the first and last 11/0 bead.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

12. Pick up one Miyuki size 10/0 Triangle bead (TR10).

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

13. Go down into the first 11/0 to the left, passing behind the ring and through to the front. The TR10 should now be sitting across the space between the first and last 11/0.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

14. Pass up through (in front of the ring) the 11/0 that the thread is exiting.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

15. Turn and go back into the TR10 going from left to right.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

16. Add seven 11/0 seed beads.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

17. Pass through the TR10 again going from left to right.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

18. Pull tight to create a loop of 11/0 beads.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

19. Reinforce the loop by stringing through all the beads again and exiting the TR10 on the right side.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

20. Go down into the 11/0 bead to the right, passing behind and then through the ring.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

21. Pass up through the same 11/0.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

22. Repeat steps 20 and 21 on the next 11/0 to the right.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

23. Repeat again so that the thread is exiting the third 11/0 on the right side of the ring.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

24. Add two TR10 beads.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

25. Begin working in Brick Stitch by passing the needle under the thread connecting the third and fourth 11/0 beads.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

26. Go back up through the second TR10 bead (on the right).

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

27. Pull to secure and pick up another TR10.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

28. Pass under the thread connecting the fourth and fifth 11/0 beads.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

29. Go back up into the TR10.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

30. Continue to work in Brick Stitch as you move clockwise around the ring. Add one TR10 per connecting thread bridge until you have twelve TR10 beads.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

31. Pick up one more TR10 (for a total of 13) and add it passing under the thread connecting the the last two 11/0 beads.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

32. Go back up through the TR10 and pull to secure.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

33. The tension from the previous beads in this row will pull the 13th TR10 down and should give the earring a symmetrical look.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

34. Pick up two size 8/0 Triangle beads (TR8).

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

35. Begin working in Brick Stitch by passing under the thread connecting the first and second TR10 on the left side.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

36. Pass back up through the second TR8 bead (on left).

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

37. Add another TR8 and pass under the thread connecting the second and third TR10 beads in previous row.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

38. Pass up through the TR8 bead just added.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

39. Continue in brick stitch (going counter clockwise) adding one TR8 per thread bridge until thirteen TR8 beads have been added.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

40. Pick up one more TR8.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

41. Pass under the same thread bridge as the previous TR8 bead.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

42. Go back up through the fourteenth TR8 bead and pull to secure.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

43. String two 4mm Firepolish beads (FP).

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

44. Skip the first thread bridge and pass under the thread connecting the second and third TR8 beads.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

45. Go back up into the second FP bead on the right.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

46. Continue in Brick Stitch going clockwise around until there are thirteen FP beads.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

47. Flip the whole earring over so #13 FP (the one with the thread exiting it) is now on the right side.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

48. String on 30 of the 11/0 seed beads and go into the #7 FP bead.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

49. Come out of FP #6.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

50. String 30 more 11/0 beads and go into FP #12 passing behind the previous loop of seed beads.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

51. Come out of FP #11, passing behind the two previous loops of beads.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

52. String 30 of the 11/0 seed beads and go into FP #5.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

53. Come out of FP #4.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

54. String 30 seed beads and passing behind all the previous loops to go into FP #10.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

55. Come out of FP #9 and this time pass in front of all the previous loops.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

56. String 30 seed beads and go into FP #3.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

57. Come out of FP #2.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

58. String 30 seed beads and staying in front of the previous loops, go into FP #8.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

59. Come out of FP #7, staying at the front of the the other loops.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

60. String 30 seed beads and go into FP #1.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

61. This is the final loop of the fringe.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

62. Work thread down through the three rows of triangle beads to secure.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions

63. Loop around the ring going from back to front. Sew in and trim remaining thread.

Looplicity Brick Stitch Earring Instructions
