These block beads were begging for brick stitch!!
Royal blue cats eye beads between diamond shapes.

In action

full shot
Thought about using these beads with white thread (so you can see what I am doing) in a tutorial if enough people would find it useful.   Smiley

My camera ROCKS!!! In this tute, I am all up in there!!  Even a non beader will become one after seeing how easy and clear THIS is:

Finished size bracelet 7 1/2 inches
Materials used:
310 cube beads (these are a little larger than usual seed bead)
4- 6 mm beads
beading thread (I used white dandyline from beadalon for tutorial, but I would advise using like color thread with bead choices, for your stitches will show)
clasp
bead needle
12 seed beads

String two "block" beads, and needle back thru first bead.  Leave a 6 inch tail to connect clasp later.

Pull thread taut, beads should park side by side.  Notice the thread on the top, that is where you will be needling next.  String on two more beads and then insert needle in that top stitch.

Needle thru thread....pull taut


You then needle back thru second bead, pull thread taut. String one bead, needle thru same stitch as before, then needle up thru bead.

add another bead, then needle back thru thread, then up thru bead.

You should have three beads wide, notice the two stitches on top.

Each time you start a row, remember to string two beads for first stitch.  String two beads, needle thru first stitch......

add two more beads, needle thru thread...

Needle back thru second bead.  String on next bead, needle thru stitch, then back up thru bead.

add another last bead of row, it shares same stitch as previous stitch.

Remember two beads for first stitch each row, string on two beads, needle back thru first stitch, then up second bead.

Not showing all pics of each bead, but continue across same as before.

In pattern I did 8 beads wide at the widest point.  Time to decrease and this is how that is done.  Each row still starts with 2 beads on thread.  BUT you needle thru the second stitch, skip the first stitch.  When you do this, it "parks" the beads to the left.  When I reduce, my first set of two beads has a separation problem near the bottom of them.  So I use THIS little trick to avoid that:  I call this "going around the block"  You do this by needling back down first bead, then take it back up second beads like this.....  


needle back down first bead of row, then back up thru second bead.

 (GAB complete with no more paralel parking problems).

continue across as before.  You shoul now have 7 beads wide.


Continue up next row, do not forget to skip the first stitch and 2 beads on thread AND to GAB (go around block) with those first 2 beads each row.  It makes alot of difference!!


Here I am, the last row of diamond, do not worry about GAB with last two, you will be threading back thru here when you add the big bead.

Add on your 6 mm bead and 2 more block beads.

Needle back thru 6 mm bead and thru second bead (opposite of where you started)  You may need to fiddle with the two top new beads to park them in place.  Then GAB and back up thru big bead then out thru first bead above big bead.

You will then repeat the steps before.  I did have to rethread my needle to finish.  To start and stop each thread, I GAB a few blocks to secure.  For 7 1/2 inch (including clasp) I beaded 5 diamonds long.

Thread 3 seeds, clasp of choice, then 3 more seeds.  Needle back thru opposite bead of where you started, GAB as many times as possible thru seeds and clasps to secure.

I needle down my diamonds and thru my big beads (I get all secure happy, you do not wand this to break) to "bury" any tails.  2 birds with one stone kinda thing.  lol
I used black thread for mine, will all the "cruising" with thread I do  GABbing, the white thread shows.
