Earlier this year, I found a vintage articulated fish with dangling scales necklace on ebay. The first one I found I was outbid on. So, I went on a search for another one, an in doing so, I found it was made in many different colors. That lead me on a search to find as many different colors as I could. Some that I found were priced out of my range. The ones I could get reasonably, I purchased. Along the way, I discovered owls from the 60's and 70's. I had a thing for owls back then, but I had gotten rid of them over the years. I limited myself to just two owls. Pretty good for me.
Here are pictures of my vintage necklaces.

Shortly after I purchased the vintage fish above, I discovered that Fashion Bug had a reproduction of it for sale. It is very similar, but not as well made as the vintage fish. The chain is much lighter weight than the vintage fish. It would be easy for someone who had never seen the vintage fish to sell the repro on ebay as a vintage piece.
These are really fun necklaces to wear on a hot day when I do not want to wear a statement necklace which tends to be heavy and hot.
I hope you enjoy seeing my school of fish.
