Gold Fish Necklace, Ammonite Ring

by Rochelle Hughes.
(Red Deer, AB, Canada)


It must be the Canadian winters and the cabin fever, but I seem to be into fish and other sea creatures a lot this season.

I also love fossils they are my other passion so I try to incorporate my love of jewelry making with my passion for fossils. That is how I came about these projects.


For the fish I used 16g sterling silver for the frame, 26g for wrapping the frame, 28g for the weave, and swarovski crystals.

For the ammonite ring I used 16g for the frame around the ammonite and the outer edge of the ring band inside the band I used 20g for the Viking weave.

What inspiration you have gotten from cabin fever. Great piece and I think the ring is awesome. Thanks for sharing.

your piece is impressive–the size caught me first, the good eye you have for the depth you’ve put in it withe not just filling the frame with all crystals–especially inthe fins, your weaving and wrapping of the wire amazes me, the chain though it isnt slender, is seemingly delicate along withe fish–ilike that–and the blue sparkling crystal–withe pearls.

Love your goldfish. The detail of hte bubbles running up the chain adds a lot to the piece too. Very well done and very creative!

What an original and eye-catching piece! I love big, bold necklaces, so your creation spoke to me. I can see it against a long tunic or sundress as part of an artsy, gently rustic ensemble. Great job!
