Set of Halloween Charms

PROJECT S2016
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Advanced
A set of brick stitch charms in classic Halloween figures will keep your style fresh all October long. By adding slim jump rings, these can easily become necklaces or even cute earrings.
Instructions
These charms are interchangeable with the chain necklace. This necklace measures approximately 16 inches. To modify the length, simply adjust the length of chain respectively. Please note these are advanced brick stitch patterns that require knowledge of increases and decreases. For tips, please see our video: Tips for Advanced Brick Stitch Patterns.
  1. Please watch our video, How To Do Brick Stitch Bead Weaving. Also please watch, How to Make Increases and Decreases in Brick Stitch.
  2. From what you learned in the videos above, choose a pattern to start and follow along to complete the pattern. Please see our Printer Friendly PDF for Full Color Beading Pattern. Note for the Bat, please use the smoke fireline, and for the others, use the crystal fireline.
  3. Tie off and weave in your threads.
  4. Open one jump ring and attach it to the appropriate seed beads at the top of the charm. Close the jump ring. Repeat for all patterns.
  5. Cut a 16 inch length of chain, and attach one jump ring to one side. Thread on the charm and attach another jump ring and a clasp to the other end of the chain.
