We love making things with Fimo, we’ve been using the stuff since we were 6 – making clay foods for our dolls house. In fact Amelie still has the burger and chips (which is SO bad) that I made when I was little in her dolls house now. That stuff never breaks! So when Creativity Magazine asked us to come up with 3 fimo jewellery makes – a unicorn brooch, a leaf pendant and a jewellery holder, well obviously we were going to say yay!
As I mentioned in a post a few weeks back (on making a shrinkie card), I have become a bit obsessed with shrink plastic. Its one of the easiest ways to create unusual jewellery and it takes no time at all. Watching your creation shrink down in the oven is really satisfying. I decided to make a little holga camera brooch for my Little Button counterpart Laura as she’s a big fan of vintage cameras.
