All the craft that’s fit to make.

Stone Fish June 8, 2008

I first saw Christi Friesen’s work in Bead & Button June 2004. Her work is so distinctive and beautiful. I loved her instructions in Bead & Button and set out to make my own fish. I used semi-precious stone beads in my fish and a fiber optic bead for the eye. Some of the fish ended up prettier than others. The jade fish above is probably my favorite. I ended up making a giraffe too, with glass pearls and red glass beads, but I didn’t get a picture of it before it left the house. (I’m really not very good at remembering to take pictures before I give someone a gift.)
