My cousin Nancy wanted me to make her a July 4th necklace so I bought a LOT of red, white and blue beads. I am doing a craft show next weekend and thought I would make up some flag/patriotic earrings. This is the first pair. The top portion is brick stitch with size 11 blue and white seed beads - the bottom fringe is size 11 red and white seed beads. Very festive!
