One of the most innovative wire jewelry designers is Lan Anh who is from Vietnam.  I have seen many wire caged cabochon designs but her goldfish tutorial is so unique!  It can certainly be either a pendant or a decorative art piece.  You can use any gemstone cabochon that can fit inside the fish.

She said she did not find the fish shape difficult to do. But she wanted to do more and make it more life like. She looked at a lot of photos of gold fish before she attempted her design.

She was successful in her fourth attempt. The design itself took her 4 hours to complete!

As you can see the cabochon is held in place within the main 20 G wire frames as well as delicate 28 G wire netting.

You can make it any size you wish depending on the cabochon you have and adapt the design to make it your own.
