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!


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.

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.

  1. Sorry to hear you’re not feeling well, but hope you’ll be feeling good soon. Just wanted you to know how much I enjoyed the fish tutorial this morning….I’m not much on wire wrapping but this inspired me.

  2. Thank you Louise Traylor, Esther L Haskell and Ali for your kind words :) Yes, I’m feeling a little better now. I’m still on medication and has to eat in small portions. Making jewelries help to forget stomach pains. :)
