Goldfish necklace

Wanted to create a flag type banner to drape below the neck and have depth and texture. So took a photo of a goldfish, spent an inordinate amount of time giving it style, then created circles of blue to simulate a wash of water as a background. Took the final image, ran it through my bead pattern converter and polished it up. The program is good, but it can’t distinguish the various finishes and transparencies of the beads, and therefore I had to go in and make wholesale changes to the program suggested colors.
