Seed beads, brown, orange, light blue and turquoise, size 9 to 11
Bead jewelry mesh (Fig. 1) for the necklace base using size 10 transparent light blue seed beads on 22 bottom turns, gradually decreasing the number of cells. Make the mesh symmetrical, starting from the center and beading in both directions. Fix a clasp to both ends.
Work two "waves" of a desired size, using seed beads of all colors and textures (Fig. 2). Using monofilament thread will help to make the "waves" harder so that they will perfectly keep the shape. Gradually alternate bead colors and textures. Your "waves" will be weaving due to increasing of size and number of seed beads in any other row.
Attach the "waves" to the mesh, evenly distributing their folds. Fasten the jewelry grid and attach some fish. Draw a pattern as shown in Picture 1 to make it easier.
Working in "coral" technique, bead some chrysoberyl and turquoise beads from the one side of the necklace and some carnelian beads from the other side. Work longer corals with pearls in the center (Fig. 3) and attach the biggest fish to it. Free spaces between the folds of the "waves" decorate with shorter "corals."
