Fimo Jewellery

The latest jewellery class at my local craft store was using Fimo clay. The pattern we had to produce is called Chrysanthemum canes and invloved us rolling thin sheets of different coloured fimo layering them up and then putting through a pasta making machine. Quite messy but all great fun. These are the pieces that I made.





Once layered up the fimo is rolled up into a fat roll and indents cut into the roll to produce the flower design. You then cut thin slices off the roll and layer onto a thin backing sheet of fimo, lightly roll to adhere and then you are ready to stamp out the pieces. I chose a simple flower shape cutter to make this pendant, brooch and earings.




I also had enough to make a set of buttons too.
