Momentary flashing lights Answered

what is the easiest/simplest method of making a flashing light (preferably a small string of LED's or a piece of EL tape) connected to a momentary push switch? no timer or any other complication just lights that will flash on and off until the button is released.
i want to make a flashing indicator light and switch small enough to mount on a ring that i can wear on my pointing finger so that the button hits the back of my hand as i straighten my finger to point and the light flashes only until i curl my finger to release the switch.

Try a $0.50 dimmer of ebay. They have a flickering/strobe option

Or do the same on Fleabuy...
Plus there is still the option to salvage a cheap LED flashlight, most come with high, low, flash....
