Assembling fish

©2017 Barry Smith - My homemade riveting tools were given a polish in readiness for the fish assembling
The title is right. Today I finished the components for the 10 Funky Fish assemblages I'm making. So I started the job of riveting the components together.

Each fish is made up of 6 components - all made from recycled metal from silver-plated trays; silver-plated coasters; and brass jardinieres.
