While wandering around somewhere or other, I came across these lovely little fishies, and knew I had to do something with them. They weren’t my usual type of bead, being a fired ceramic, but what the h*ll. Time for something completely different.
I remembered Nevermore and thought perhaps a similar technique might work.
So, it was into the bead boxes to see which colors and sizes worked with Cleo and Clara and Clovis. What’s that? Doesn’t everyone name their fish beads? Of course they do!
The end result is a lovely spiral of seaside and mist colors in various bead sizes (15°, 11°, 8° and 6°) as the focal. The spiral comes in and goes out, just like the tide. The necklace is strands of milky white beads sealed with a slide clasp.
