My newest ornament! This one is pretty big - each fish is about 1" long. My goal was to make a somewhat abstracted fish bowl, if you will, complete with water above, plants in the middle, and rocks below.
|Goldfish and beaded "water".|
The story behind this design: my sister wanted me to do something with a couple articulated fish she still wanted, but not as pendants. I was literally going to make a fish bowl to fill with beads and fish as the design when she mentioned she didn't like fish bowls, and something less defined would be nice.
|Angel fish and beaded "seaweed".|
This was my solution - and I like it better than my original idea, too! I used wire crochet to lock in the colored beads and monofilament (fishing line) to hang the fish. I'm hoping the little white beads look like bubbles - I couldn't resist!
|Blue fish and beaded "pebbles".|
