This tutorial will show you how to create the word “Diva” in beads using the brick stitch technique. The artist uses two shades of delica beads, which are an extremely uniform, straight-sided variety of seed bead. These special traits help delicas fit very close together and to naturally form straight lines. Their large holes and thin walls also create an advantage in projects where a needle and thread passes through each bead more than once. They are a wonderful choice for projects that require extra precision, such as one using the brick stitch technique!
