How to make
- Cut a large piece of FIMO clay of your chosen colour. Roll in your hands until the clay is warm.
- When the clay is rolled into a ball place on a smooth surface and roll into a sausage shape until the diameter of the sausage is the size of a ten pence piece.
- Using a sharp cutting knife cut the sausage into five millimetre segments.
- When you have your FIMO discs the cut edges will be quite hard so use your thumb and index finger to gently soften the edges. Place the disc on a baking tray and gently squash, repeating on the other side.
- Cut an eight centimetre piece of silver craft wire and gently push it through the disc. Place on a baking tray and repeat steps one to five until you have enough discs for your desired length of necklace.
- When your discs have been fired (as per instructions on packet) and have cooled, take the first disc of your necklace and bend the wire on either side into a 90 degree angle. This stops the wire from pushing out when you are creating the loops. Use a pair of round nose pliers and create a loop, wrap the excess wire around the base, them trim. Repeat for the other side of the disc.
- Take your next disc and repeat the process in step six, but before you wrap the loop pass the wire through the loop of the first disc to create a link.
- Continue steps six and seven until all the FIMO discs are linked together.
