Stars & Stripes Forever

I made this flag by gluing broken and tarnished chains into a 5x7 shadowbox frame. The "stars" are the backs of earrings that I had used in other similar projects. In addition to gluing with E6000 glue, I used tiny straight pins to stick the stars to the back of the shadowbox.

Not sure if you'll be able to see, but one of the "stripes" has "Dot" engraved on it.  So I thought I'd share a picture of Dot, my inspiration and certainly one of the most patriotic people I ever knew.
