My partner in the IYP17 swap, CamOovas, loves koi.  She had several koi-related things on her wist, including a box with sculpted fish and lily pads on the lid.  I had an empty pocket watch case lying around and thought it would make a lovely piece of jewelry with a sculpted koi and lily flower set inside. 



The fish and water are sculpted from polymer clay, the clay flower has a swarovski detail in the center. The water was coated in diamond glaze to give it a fluid sheen.  The piece was finished off with a watch chain in a length suitable to wear this as a necklace.  I also think it would make a lovely Christmas tree ornament.
