Happy Fish Things

About this design:

I've been home sick most of this week with sinus trouble. In between naps and meds, I had time to create with beads I recently received from Jana at HappyFishThings (Etsy).


Czech glass cream saucers. Czech lustre verde bellflowers (LB). Crazy lace agate (LB). Czech beachglass saucer (LB). Czech rondelles cherrychip (LB). Parawire.

    Great work! Illness has not adversely affected your creativity.
    (when I’m not feeling well, I get cranky, nothing looks right, I get frustrated…)

    Thanks ladies!
    When I placed the order, I thought the leaves would be mine. I think I’ve fallen for the long dangly simplicity of the cherrychip. They look great with red and rust and maroon.
