For years I had been frustrated with circular brick stitch because I thought that there was a certain number of beads that I had to put on for each round and my pendants never ended up looking right. Eventually, I learned that there is a way you can “read” your thread and tell how many beads you need to add. When I finally figured out the tricks to this stitch, I became excited with all the possibilities! You can create any size pendant you'd like with any beads you have sitting around! This is a great project for left over bead stashes!
I cannot tell you exactly how many beads to put on each round because I have found that the sizes of the beads vary slightly with different manufacturers (for instance my Toho 11/0's are a slightly different size then my Miyuki 11/0's). Usually, this does not cause a problem with most beading stitches, but it does change the number of beads you'll need in each round with the circular brick stitch. Therefore, I will teach you how to know how many beads you need and the tricks to creating a stunning beaded pendant!
