FIMO Clay Beads and Necklaces

I was down in the beaches the other weekend, and came across this FIMO modelling clay that hardens in the oven, its inexpensive, cost me around $2 and can be found in craft stores such as Michaels.
 First thing I tried to make is an anchor pendant. I rolled the clay out with a rolling pin, then I printed out a picture of an anchor off of google. I cut out the anchor, and placed it on the clay and traced around it with a knife.

I then removed any excess, and smoothed the edges and poked a hole with a skewer at the top of the anchor.

Next I tried imprinting the clay. I rolled the clay into a ball with my hands, and then pressed one of my flower earrings into it.
Next, I tried making a little jewellery bowl. 
I always see a picture of something similar on pinterest, but it doesn't give clear directions. 
I rolled my clay out into a circle.
Then I pressed one of my lace tops into it, to make the imprint.
I then placed it into a muffin tin, to make it more of a bowl shape.
I didn't push it all the way in though, just enough to make a bowl shape.
I cooked all of the pieces, following the directions on the clay.
I placed it on tin foil as I wasn't sure if it would ruin my pans.
Once the clay was dry, I glued and painted the pieces.
I made the earring flower imprint into a little thumb tack.
To one of my necklace pendants, I added some beads and attached it to a chain.
This geometric necklace, I created also, by rolling into a ball and then flattening different edges until I had the desired shape. I used a butter knife to flatten the edges.
I then painted with acrylic paints.



Cute and simple necklace diy with clay!
