Pappi The Fish – day 56

Posted on Feb 25, 2011 in 365 Paper Bead Creations | 7 comments

Something whimsical today, is Pappi the Fish.  I wanted to call her Wanda but I already have a Wanda fish waiting to be adorned with paper beads.  The findings for this project is a line called bead critters usually made up of top and bottom and you provide the bead for the body.


You thread the findings and the bead using a head pin and basic wire wrapped technique.


I had fun making this, fish in Asian culture is also good luck or at least this kind of fish 🙂


With this in mind I am wishing everybody good luck in whatever projects you are doing, I know I could wishes of luck myself 🙂
