I've covered patriotic jewelry before (see links below) but I just had to include this crop of really fun 4th of July beaded earrings tutorials.  There is still time to whip up a pair before you head of for a street party or bbq!  Also note that in many cases, you could adapt these designs by substituting the color for other country flag inspired creations.

Shayna over at Prima Bead designed the above pair of flag earrings from crystal bicones (tutorial no longer available)!  This is easy enough for beginners because all you have to know is how to wire wrap or form loops.

Beading enthusiasts can bring out their favorite thread and needle for the American Beauty brick stitch and loop fringe pair below. It's by Marjory Dalgarn of Living with 3 Moon Babies.

Want more of a fringe?  Then check out  the Independence earrings tutorial by Bead Dancing (tutorial no longer available)

This smaller pair (tutorial no longer available) will suit those who prefer a daintier pair. It's from About Beadwork's archives.
