With all the rain, I was feeling bored, and decided to play with my beads. I noticed that I had a lot of larger beads that were sitting unused for years, and I thought they might look nice strung. I don't normally do stringing - stringing is to beadwork what salads are to cooking; it's not about the technique, it's the ingredients.
I have had these little fish beads forever. There are only seven of them, and the store where I bought them doesn't even sell them any more, so I either needed to come up with a design that would be good enough with those few fish, or get rid of them (never my first choice). Once I developed the pattern for the necklace, I saw that I only needed three of the fish! I decided the rest would go well on a bracelet.
