Necklace, "I Love Stripes". Multicolored Bullseye glass canes, 0.925 sterling silver; fused, assembled. Fused multicolored glass rods have been arranged in triangular and rectangular patterns. These groups of fused glass rods are set within twenty-one sterling silver mounts. Each mount, with the exception of the two back mount/clasp settings, are connected to one another by four double-eye silver pins. A silver clasp connects the necklace together, and a small rectangular mount with fused glass canes designates the clasp from the front. Silver safety hooks on either side of the clasp/mount components secure the clasp when it is in a closed position.
