"Silver Fish"By Trebeca04
A wooden fish on a metal stand came into my studio about a year ago, and waited his turn to take center stage. A few weeks ago, my husband and I were in San Francisco for a few days, and I made a point of visiting my favorite store in the city: SCRAP. I never know what I’ll find there, the materials in the store change daily, but I always find an abundance of “art materials”. The warehouse is organized by type of material: wood, metal, glass, fabric, paper, images, plastic, natural materials, beads & buttons, arts & crafts, toys, and more.
This day at SCRAP I found a ton of these silver buttons being sold by the cup-full, and I instantly knew they would make a beautiful "fish dress". I gathered all my other “silvery” bits and bobbles to include coins, bottle caps, milagros, washers, beads, charms and earrings. And I started nailing . . .
About a week later, Silver Fish was finished: be-jeweled and be-dazzled, sitting on his metal perch, ready to celebrate in silvery style.
