Come to learn the Brick Stitch with Ruth Ann Kowalski @ the Community Center from noon to 2:00 PM

We will be making earrings to learn brick stitch in the round. Below is a list of supplies. We will be using Jill Weisman' directions for this project which calls for delicas. But you can use seed beads. Different sizes add a little dimension. You could also use  a hoop earring in place of the ring. Below is a link to the downloadable pdf instructions and Jill Weisman's Youtube video. Also a couple other variations.
