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!

 

Wire Jewelry Tutorial

 

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.

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.
