Chinese Lion Dance Costume Brick Stitch Bead Pattern

This Chinese Lion bead pattern is inspired by the dance costume used in cultural celebrations. In Hawaii, we're lucky to see these fierce but good fortune Lions throughout the year - to ring in the new year, at weddings, store openings, birthday parties, etc. It's always exciting to watch the energized dance performance and feel the vibration of the drums.

This is a slightly bigger design for me but I like it because it can still be used as earrings components without appearing too huge. I tend to go for small, dainty pieces so I often create miniature size beadwork. I usually turn my larger designs into bag charms. I'm trying to step out of my comfort zone and experiment with bigger pieces and, it's quite fun!

Here are the details:
Technique: Brick Stitch
Approximate Size: 2.8 cm wide x 2.8 cm tall
Bead Count: 240 Delica beads
Bead Colors: 7
