TOPICAL FISH collage.
This is me blatantly getting on the bandwagon.
I bought 18kg of broken jewellery on eBay which I then spent three weeks cleaning, drying and sorting. The bulk of it was used on the ferret collage (illustrated at the top of the page) and this one. I stole the title from a Pete and Dud sketch in which they are at the zoo and Dud complains he went to see the topical fish to get some up to date news, but it was just a lot of fish swimming about. Pete explains they were tropical fish and that the 'r' must have blown off.
