For those of you living in the U.S., the Fourth of July is almost upon us! If red, white, and blue are your thing, be sure to stitch up this "American eagle" bracelet (above) by Becky Antas. If you're looking for a more subtle way to show your patriotic spirit, check out the following free jewelry patterns from our archives!
"Canyons and clouds" necklace, by Jane Danley Cruz, features the 2013 Bead&Button Show commemorative bead, which was made by Frank Scott and inspired by the Grand Canyon. It doesn't get more American than that! And even though the Show is over, you can still pick up a 2013 bead here.
Play up just one of the colors of the day with Tea Benduhn's "Red herring flower" necklace. It's a great project if you have a special button you've been meaning to use!
Don't limit this star ornament to the December holidays! Work up Jane Reichhold's "A star is born" in each color of the flag. Then, hang them in your windows or on your front porch.
If you prefer to wear your stars on your sleeve, go for "See the stars" bracelet by Gloria Simpson. The design is versatile enough to wear all year long!
