Inexpensive and easy mythical necklace
This is inspired by Melros's Dragon Egg Necklace at Dad Can Do

The majority of time involved on this project is baking the fimo, allowing it to cool and allowing the paint to dry.

The cost to make this necklace was well under $1.

    Step 2

    I rolled a bit of the clay to form the shape of an egg, then stuck the straw through it to make the hole.

    Bake for 30 mins at 230 degrees (or whatever the directions on the package indicate) then allow to cool for a few minutes.

    Step 3

    You can use a wooden skewer or the small plastic straw to hold the egg while you decorate a design onto it with the fabric paint or glitter glue.

    I put the wooden skewer across the top of the bottle cap to allow the paint to dry.

    Once the egg is dry, put the jump ring through the hole in the top

    Then cut ribbon to the length that you would like (mine is around 24 inches) then thread the dragon egg onto until it is centered and tie it to the jump ring.

    Then twist the ends together in order to thread the bead onto the necklace.
