Americans are having a patriotic moment. Between the 2016 Presidential election, the united fight against terrorism and the anticipated 2016 Summer Olympics, patriotism is appearing in very fashionable places.
For his Spring ’16 collection, Marc Jacobs featured American flags throughout his collection in the form of apparel and flap handbags. And who are we to argue with Marc Jacobs?
Online retailers are getting on board too and realizing this trend means business. Kohls.com and Macys.com both have whole sections of their website devoted to Patriotic jewelry. Famed retailer Brighton Collectibles came out with a line of jewelry and jewelry components around the red, white and blue.
We are huge supporters of DIY designers and jewelry designs that sell on Etsy. We found these super cute flag earrings by The HappyEverythingElse Shop using Swarovski bicone beads:
And hey, even if you are not American or if you are but want to show your support for another country (thinking of the recent attacks in Paris), here is a great idea from NailsAlwaysPolished Blog. It features her creative design of a “destination manicure” using the flags of Italy, Germany, the USA and France. We would just recommend adding Swarovski Rhinestones!
At HarMan Beads, we are also getting into the patriotic spirit. Check out our new Swarovski Pave BeCharmed Beads, a super fun way to support your country, favorite soccer team, or even a token to remind you of that amazing vacation you just took!
