Wish List: Fish Beads

As the end of the school year is fast approaching, many of us are turning to thoughts of summer vacation, and summer jewelry. Fish beads are fantastic for warm weather designs, beachy themes, and souvenir jewelry. The symbol of the fish can represent many different things, such as the salmon’s ability to find its way home, or the simple beauty of the ocean. Here are just a few of my favorites.

Orange Carved Bone Fish Beads

Ceramic Blue Koi Beads

Astral Pink Swarovski Fish Bead

Recycled Glass Fish Beads

Do you have a favorite fish to inspire jewelry designs?
