Beaded Necklace Tutorial



Here is a super easy and super brilliant way to make your own gorgeous, one of a kind beaded necklace!

What you will need:
  1. Fimo oven bake clay in your choice of colour
  2. A skewer
  3. An oven
  4. Thin chain necklace
  5. Glitter (If desired)
  6. A pair of crafty hands 

Step 1. Take 1cm square of clay, and roll it into a smooth circular ball. 
The clay will become softer the more you handle it.


Step 2. Using a skewer, make a hole through the middle of the clay. 
Be sure to do this straight after moulding, when the clay is soft. It could crack later, 
as hardens when not held.


Step 3. And there you have it, now your beads are ready for the oven! 
Bake for 30 minutes on 130°C. Once hardened, thread onto a thin chain and enjoy.

We experimented with different shapes and techniques - like adding glitter, and mixing two 
colours to create a marble effect, polkadots, and stripes. 


Tried it? Let me know how yours turned out!
