Fish swap

I am a member of a Forum for mostly British Lampworkers, i.e. people who make handmade glass beads with a propane torch and oxygen. We sometimes have swaps, a bit like the Secret Santa swaps held at Christmas. We are now having a fishy bead swap with some of us buying an E Tutorial by Cathy Lybarger of Aardvarkartglass. You can find her Etsy store here
and my pictures of the fish I've made so far are below

One member of the Forum will collect the fish beads from all participants, together with a self addressed envelope suitably padded. If you send in 5 fish beads, you will get 5 back and so on. I haven't decided yet how many I will send in because having spent so long making the things, it's a bit difficult to part with them, (except for cash of course).

great fish

Those are some fun fish, and the swap idea sounds like a lot of fun, you could really find some unique ones and get ideas from others that way.
