How to Make FIMO Clay Jewellery
2023/10/09

Mixing Fimo clay is the first step in creating your desired shades. This step can be skipped if you already have the colors you want. To create a mustard shade, we mixed yellow and dark orange. For a darker shade, we added a little black to blue.

We also combined red and beige to create two shades of pink. You will need around three or four balls of clay, each about the size of a cherry tomato, in different colors.

Step 1: Earrings Roll out all of the FIMO shades to approximately 3mm thickness. Use parchment paper to avoid dust and fluff getting onto the clay.

Roll small sausages and balls of other colors and arrange them randomly on the clay. Press into the clay gently and roll using a rolling pin to combine the colors.

Step 2: Earrings We used two small oval-shaped cookie cutters to cut the earring shapes. Use a larger one for the main shape and a smaller one for the center and stud part. If you don't have a cookie cutter, create a template on paper and use a sharp knife to cut around the shapes.

Step 3: Earrings Make a hole at the top of each earring shape and the bottom of the stud part.

Step 4: Earrings After baking and cooling the clay, connect the earring parts together using a jump ring.

Step 5: Earrings Glue an earring base to the back of the stud part. Place the clay on a lined tray and bake at 110 degrees Celsius for 30 minutes.

Step 1: Necklace Follow the same steps as above for creating the earrings, but this time create a single shape using a different shade of clay for the base.

Step 2: Necklace Use a cocktail stick to make a hole at the top of the necklace pendant. Place the clay on a lined tray and bake at 110 degrees Celsius for 30 minutes.

Step 3: Necklace After baking and cooling the clay, attach a jump ring to the top of the necklace pendant.

Step 4: Necklace Thread a necklace through the jump ring to finish the necklace.

Step 1: Bracelet To make beads, roll a sausage-shaped piece of clay and press it flat for the base. Add splodges of other colors and roll the same way as the earrings.

Step 2: Bracelet Trim the clay to create two rectangles, then wrap them around the metal bangle. Trim at an angle so that the clay overlaps smoothly.

Step 3: Bracelet Seal the edges using a cocktail stick. Place the clay (including the bangle) on a lined tray and bake at 110 degrees Celsius for 30 minutes.
