Wire Jewelry Tutorial: A fishy tail tutorial!

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.

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.
