You can use the brick stitch to create almost any shape you want. All it takes is clever increases and decreases on the stitch. We like to use TOHO Treasure seed beads with this stitch, as they line up nicely and are very consistent. The colors are outstanding, too. See more inspiration for small brick stitch pieces and even some peyote stitch projects in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
