How to Make

  1. Take a section of red Fimo clay and roll it into a small ball. Then use your hands, or a rolling pin, to squash the ball to create a flat circle, approximately 4cm in diameter.
  2. Take a tiny section of white Fimo clay and roll it into a very small ball. Then press it onto the centre of the red circle.
  3. Take more tiny sections of white Fimo clay and push them around the white circle on the red clay.
  4. Create three long oval shapes out of the blue Fimo clay and attach them to the back of the red circle. Then use a cocktail stick to make a small hole in the top of the red circle.
  5. Create beads using red, black and blue Fimo clay, by taking small sections of clay and roll them into a small ball. Then push a cocktail stick through the centre of the circles to make a small hole in them.
  6. Follow the instructions of the packaging to bake the beads and necklace pendant in the oven.
  7. Thread the beads and pendant onto some black elastic, then trim the ends and tie them together in a double knot.

Top Tip

Leave the beads to cool for 5 minutes after taking them out of the oven, otherwise, they will be too hot to work with.
