Tryzub and American Flag Eternity bead design with an American flag on one face and a Ukrainian Tryzub on the other face with a red or blue rushnyk-style side accent.
The hole in this bead is 4MM and fits most Pandora, Troll, Chamilia, Biagi & other styles of European bracelets. This bead does not, however, represent any of these major brands.
A rushnyk is a traditional Slavic ritual cloth which is typically embroidered with various symbols and cryptograms of the ancient world, or simple patterns in traditional colors. They have been used throughout Eastern Europe in sacred rituals, religious services and ceremonial events such as weddings and funerals. Each region has its own designs and patterns with hidden meaning, passed down from generation to generation.
The flag of the United States is one of the nation’s most widely recognized symbols. Within the United States, flags are frequently displayed not only on public buildings but on private residences. The flag is a common motif on decals for car windows, and clothing ornaments such as badges and lapel pins. Throughout the world the flag has been used in public discourse to refer to the United States, not only as a nation, state, government, and set of policies, but also as a set of ideals.
