Dragon Dance

Episode Notes


Project Info:

Level: Intermediate

Estimated time: 4-6 Hours

Project and Sample by Kate Richbourg

Years ago, Linnea made Circular Brick Stitch super popular with her "The Dancer" Earring Collection. Now we have a gorgeous update from Kate, inspired in part by the work of Beadshop Design Team member Danielle Wickes.
Using vintage I Ching coins, Little Shadows, and a cool collection of metal components, Kate’s earrings remind us of the festive ceremonial Chinese Dragon Dance…these could be your lucky earrings!

Please Note: This project is older and uses many components we no longer have available to us. Please check through our Metal Bead and Tribal & Trade Collections to find replacements you love! We no longer carry 3mm Melons, which Kate used a single bead of at the bottom of each earring dangle. We think you can just replace each with a single 3mm Fire Polish, Seed Bead, or Shadow...you do you!
