  1. @wickyv35 It's called Wildfire Thermal Bonded Beading Thread .008 Inch – Black- 50 Yds.
    SKU# XCR-8936. WildFire beading thread is extra strong and durable. It's available on Beadaholique's website. You can find a list and links for supplies in this video in the video description underneath the video.

  2. You did this video in a very informative manner, so that even beginners could understand it well. However, as a long time beader, I just have one wish – that I could make my stitches go as quickly as you did in completeing rows two and three! LOL

  3. @gladys1620 You will end a circular brick stitch the same way you end any other bead weaving project – yes, essentially tying a knot, working your end into your bead work, tying another knot, working the thread back in, etc. We have a video titled "How to Tie Off and Add New Thread in Bead Weaving" that you can check out and use as a reference.

  4. @MyH2oh When you have finished the woven piece, tie off and weave in your threads, which you can see how to do in this video: How to Tie Off and Add New Thread in Bead Weaving. Then thread your beading needle with a new length of fireline. Go through a few beads near the top of your piece, coming out at the center of the top edge, and leave a tail at the end of your thread.

  5. @Beadaholique Bring your needle through the loop of the clasp or earring wire and then back through the next few beads along the top of your woven piece. Weaving your thread through the beads, bring it back around through the clasp again to reinforce it. Then tie off and weave in your thread, and the thread tail you began with.

  6. Thank you so much for your tutorials…they are super. Very very informative and done with clarity so that anyone can easily follow and learn the technique. I look forward to any new videos you make. Thanks again. 🙂

  7. I must be really dumb because I am not following how to do this…..I have never beaded before but I am just not getting how to do the ladder part at the beginning…..help….

  8. The beginning is actually the trickiest part. It might help if you watch our video on how to do the ladder stitch: "How to Do Ladder Stitch Bead Weaving". Then once you have 3 beads ladder stitched together, you are going to create an arch with your thread by going from the first bead and passing through the last bead in your row of 3.

  9. Now is where most people have trouble, you are going to use your fingers to manipulate the beads so that the first and last bead get pulled together to create a circle and make sure to keep their threads on the outside. It might take you doing this step 5 or 6 times until you get it, I know I had trouble with this first part too in the beginning.

  10. I used to do this but forgot over the years. I can't seem to keep all three beads with holes facing out like yours. Going through them pulls them around.

  11. Without seeing what you are doing, I can't tell for certain what is happening but my guess is that you are somehow looping your thread around and that is what is causing them to turn on their side. You go into the beads from the top down, loop under your thread bridge, and then go from the bottom up back through the bead. It could also be that your initial row is not straight and that is causing a snowball effect.

  12. For the first couple beads, you really need to coax them in place with your fingers, they will want to move around.

  13. I couldn't see what you were doing in parts because the camera was showing your hand but not the work behind it. One of the confusing things about starting the second row is also that putting two beads on and going through the one furthest from me left the one behind it sort of dangling and I wasn't sure how or where to secure it. If I could see if done from above I would see exactly where to put everything. Can do it around a focal fine but starting with the 3 beads really throws me off.

  14. I might try this again with delicas and see if that works since they don't roll around as much as the Czech ones do.

  15. Awesome to show very clear but didn't show how it ends like to knot the thread. Wonderful to have captions here. I will let you know after I try this

  16. I finally got the right project after 3rd attempt on first row. I use different beads to experiment first before buy right size of beads. Not bad for first time. I need to practice some more with right size of beads. Thank you.

  17. Check out our video "How to Tie Off and Add New Thread in Bead Weaving" to learn how to end your bead weaving projects.

  18. Beautiful, i am just upload my first VDO of my creation you can find me by typing

    Have a wonderful day

  19. Can sewing thread be used with the same effect? I can't find the bonded beading thread in my area. Also, could you please show how to plan and create a design using the brick stitch if you don't have one already? Also, thank you for your wonderful tutorials!

    PS. What size beads are you using and are they the glass beads? I bought some VERY tiny ones because I'm making intricate designs, but I'm unsure about their size. Thanks again!

  20. The beads used in this video are size 11/0 Czech beads which are approximately 2mm. I hope this information helps 🙂

  21. Sewing thread can be used, it just is not going to be as strong and it might stretch a bit. I would experiment with it first before doing your entire project, just to make sure it holds its shape and can stand the wear. Thank you for the suggestion on planning out a pattern/design, I can add it to our requests list. We get quite a few requests and try to get to as many as possible, but we can not promise.

  24. took me 2 hrs because of stopping and going back to see exactly where you are placing your needle , myb beads have turned around several times ughhhhh!!!

  25. I've spent 2 days searching the web for circular brick stitch tutorials that do NOT have a center bead or a ring in them somewhere. Your's is the only one I've found. Thanks so much!
