The basic brick stitch edge or Sunshine edge is a beautiful way to finish a beaded bezel. Also known as the raw edge or basic edge, this technique uses the base stitch for the brick stitch pattern. Begin first by creating a beaded bezel.
Once you have finished your beaded bezel, use an adhesive such as Gemtac to attach a second piece of backing to the back side of the bezel. The backing can be any kind of fabric or material that will not fray when cut, such as bead backing. We chose to use a textured felt. Let dry completely before beading.
Cut a length of thread approximately a little longer than arm's length. We used Nymo D thread. The amount you need will depend on the size of your piece. Thread one beading needle and tie a secure knot at the end of the thread.
Nice choice! All or most of the products needed for this project are shown below with quantities. Sometimes we sell out of components and aren’t able to order more from the manufacturer (we know, it is very disappointing to us, too). Use the opportunity to mix up the design and make it yours by substituting similar products or altering the entire color scheme—it’s up to you!
