Got Fish?

One of my favorite lampwork bead styles has always been the fish. It was my good friend Bindy Lambell who taught me early on that when a bead is going awry, make a fish. "Oh $h*t!!! Flat fish!!!" was her philosophy and it worked for me. It was a great way to save a bead that had some cool colors or textures going on.

But there comes a time when you strive to make a fish just to make a fish. It's your goal from the beginning. This Calypso bead was like that for me. I just love his colors. And his metallic fins are mesmerizing.

Pretty cool looking fish, eh? He's on Etsy along with matching spacers to be made into ????
