Right off the bat, I’m going to say that I fell in love with the idea of making this bracelet. I’ve been using my Rick’s Beading Loom a lot lately so when the idea of making an American flag bracelet came up, I was so excited. However, the bright true colors of the American flag are not necessarily colors that I would wear often. Instead, I decided to pick more muted colors – colors of a worn vintage flag. And oh my gosh, it turned out amazing!
I really love the idea of wearing this bracelet with jeans and a white tee-shirt – it just feels so classically American!
Here’s some shots of the bracelet in process:
I think the grey FireLine thread adds to the worn look.
Of course, once the vintage flag was made, I had to make a classic version. I think it turned out just as amazing.
Which color way do you prefer?
Happy beading – Lindsay!
