  • 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 5mm 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 8cm piece of silver craft wire and gently push it through the disc. Place on a baking tray and repeat steps 1 – 5 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 creatingthe 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 6, but before you wrap the loop pass the wire through the loop of the first disc to create a link.
  • Continue steps 6 and 7 until all the Fimo discs are linked together.

Hobbycraft Content Marketing Assistant, I'm in love with all things craft, vintage and floral. I spend my spare time visiting craft fairs in the south on the look out for something that's a little bit different. When not out exploring by foot I'm on my bike riding around the country side or down by the beach.
