Fish Over Troubled Water
This piece began with a simple fish pin purchased at a thrift shop. The central wave chasing the fish is composed of fresh water pearls from my broken wedding necklace. The gold buoy below the fish was the pearls' claps. The gold wire fishing neck on the back of the piece was created with solder. The ocean strands are composed of ruby, emerald, and sapphire beads. At the top of the net there is a gold tarnished ribbon that hangs over the fish, which is hard to see in the picture. This was created with solder by accident....a fortuitous accident because the ribbon shape made me realize how connected I was to the piece. I had begun working on the piece shortly after being diagnosed with breast cancer. The piece is about navigating life's many storms.
