I Don't Think So...


The beaded bezel covers too much and since the cab back wasn't flat (has a slight curve), I also had to net it a bit...and I don't like it.
Next move is to drill a couple of small holes and sew it on...then I can just outline it with beads (like in the last post) and won't have to cover up any of the front of it.
Any opinions?

I agree, drill some holes so you can sew the fish on, otherwise he looks like he's in a net or something. Very cool fish by the way, is it bone?

thanks, kelly...yes, he's bone.

If you don't want to drill holes - and what kind of bead is going to sit on those holes and where are the holes going to go? Try netting - like the fish was caught in a net. 15's in silver. When you can't make something unobtrusive, make it blantantly obvious!
Cheers, Denise

hi denise...I drilled the holes very tiny and I think they will be unobtrusive...I didn't really want the net look...it covers up too many of the carved details that make this salmon so special to my eyes...

I love all the interesting pieces you use in your beadwork, especially this salmon=:)

Hi Barb--I like the tiny holes approach, myself. Maybe less is more in this case? If the fish rocks a little, sew a flat MOP button under him....Love these pieces.
