|One of my earlier 2-Fish designs|
My working title for the design was "One Fish, Two Fish." Rather than fully encapsulating the core bead as in my other fish designs, these pendants allow the beauty of the central stone to shine through and become part of the design.
They're built with right angle weave, my second-most favorite (can you say that?) bead weaving stitch and what I think of as 'bead sketching' - drawing the fishy details with beads (size 15s).

Two of my students brought fish to show off from previous classes. And they let me take pictures to share!
|I love how Vala used orange thread with her cream beads for the body!|
|Is it just me, or does Vala's little fish look terribly sad in this picture?|
|Linda rocks my original Catch of the Day design, finishing it with a herringbone chain|
I also managed to snap a single pic of their works-in-progress from the class. I waited too long and the other two students had managed to slip away before I thought to pull out my camera. As it was, I had to snatch Linda's WIP out of her bag as she tried to pack. I am so bad!
