Beaded Irish Flag

Irish flag made of green white and orange beads.

Tell everyone you are Irish all year long with this Beaded Irish Flag Key Chain.  Friends and family will all want one to  show their Irish pride. If you do beading, you probably have most of the supplies already and it is easy enough to get a new beader started.

Trivia:

The green represents Irish nationalism; the orange, Ireland’s Protestant minority, and the Orange Order; the white, lasting peace between the two. Source: Irish Central – Do you know the story behind the Irish flag?
