If you're of a certain generation, you'll remember a cartoon zebra saying this about Beachnut gum. It was a real novelty in it's day; the only gum in the U.S. with striped sticks. If you've been following the blog, you'll know that stripes are a favorite theme in many of my creations this year. As I near the finish line of this project, it's yet another chance to show a how to use this motif creatively. The center and silver ring near the edge are costume jewelry findings; an earring and a broach with the post/pin back cut off. Striping peeks out from the outer edge of the silver ring. Over the black, textured clay border, sterling silver gallery wire frames the rim.
