Goldfish Netsuke Necklace

The goldfish is a netsuke-sized model cast in bronze with aventurine beads and a bronze fastening. 

I modeled the original out of SuperSculpy hard, made two molds of this model (one for the tail and one for the body), poured wax into the molds and cast this by the lost wax method.  The fish is hollow and surprisingly light.  You can see more pictures on
