We here at Artbeads want to wish you all a happy Veteran’s Day. Not many people may realize the history behind this special day, and what is so special about its November 11th date. It started with WWI. Known as “the Great War,” it officially ended with the Treaty of Versailles signing on June 28, 1919 in France. However, fighting had stopped months before between Germany and the allied nations. This cessation was enacted on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day, of the eleventh month. This is why we celebrate and pay tribute to our veterans on this special day every year. This day is dedicated to veterans joining together with citizens in a shared cause for finding world peace.
We want to help you celebrate by sharing with you some of our favorite jewelry and craft ideas with a patriotic theme. Take a look to get free step-by-step instructions, including a list of products used, to make your own. Our ideas are free for you to discover and replicate, so choose your favorite to design or get inspired to make your own interpretation. Maybe your effort to spread the word on your wrist, neck or ears will be just enough to inspire someone else to share the same desire.
