Alrighty, here are a pair of easy peasy earrings to make. I found the fish in china town in NYC in some tiny shop and my mother had a stroke of brilliance: BUY A PAIR AND MAKE EARRINGS, after my feeble exclamation of oooo pretty.




I know the pictures are quite blurred, lets face it...I gotta work on my photography skills. Anybody wanna help?
Also, any feedback on the earrings would be appreciated!

What kind of camera? digital, SLR, or point and shoot? and do you have your camera set to close up or macro setting (usually a flower is used as a icon)?
Do you have a flat bed color copier/scanner? This can work great for a clear close up.

BTW, very cute fishes.

Wow! those are so great. Awesome little fishes = totally cool earrings. Perfect size, too.

I'm going to Chinatown (NY) for my birthday soon, so you give me hope! They have some totally cool stuff up there. ^^

I found an awesome huge plastic kite-esque dragon to hang in my room as well! Though a word of advice: half the shops have the same merch, so check out a couple to get the best deal. The ones in the beginnign tend to be more expensive.

Definetly! Especially with the street vendors- you can walk five feet and get a better deal ^^.

Love those fish! So cute!!!!

I got one at a craft fair earlier this year, am thinking of doing a necklace with him.  Wish i'd got 2 now.  Oh well, same fair on again in 6 months.  Will hunt him down and raid the tray for fishies.  I've got horses and owls much the same style as well.  Not 2 of the same though.

i am pretty sure you can still get them at cost plus, though they may be more expensive there than they are in chinatown.

haha, my dad bought some of those from a dallas "museum" place-type-thing, and i was thinking of making earrings out of them!! yours look very cute. im not sure if mine would since the fish are kinda big. haha. maybe a necklace would work better.
