Hi everyone! I wasn’t feeling okay yesterday. I was suppose to finish a beaded earring and have the steps posted today but nope, couldn’t do it. My gastritis is attacking again and it hurts really bad…I’m feeling a little better now. I’m on meds but still couldn’t do much work 🙁 Because of this I might have to skip my beaded earring for awhile and hope to fill your day with something interesting, the fishy tail tutorial as our Wire Jewelry Tutorial today!
I love fish 🙂 It’s my favorite dish. I like it more than meat and chicken. It’s amazing our friend Linda Jones of WireWorkers Guild came up with fun designs of wire fishes 🙂
You can use your wire fishes as charms on key chains, pendants or earrings.
Some of Linda’s wire fishes she used as decorations. Let’s see how we can create the wire fish.
The fish’s body is composed of a wire frame.
Another wire is used to create the fins.
Using a bead, wrap and create an eye and then make lots of loops to cover the frame that will look like scales.
Voila! You have a cute little fish!
Look at how many variations you can make!
Try it yourself! Visit Linda’s “A Fishy Tail” tutorial for the complete and detailed steps. Have fun cooking your wire fishes 🙂
