DIY: Brick-stitch Technique ~

Brick-stitch is hot right now! Single rows, multiple rows, varieties of bead types - we're seeing people beading around shapes to make incredibly rich designs. With all of this beady creativity happening we are really excited about our new Hammertone Stitch-around Hoops and Teardrops. 

The hoops come in two sizes and have a bead accent at the loop. They are fabulous for embellishing on the outside and the inside.

The teardrops are an update of a classic TierraCast shape. Also available in two sizes, the elongated loop at the top allows for easy attachment to bails or ear wires, with room for adding embellishments on the inside of the teardrops as well.
