Love Your Heart.
Okay, I promised a How-To and I never forgo a promise.

Fimo is the work of Gods, you can do everything with it. If you have Fimo in a draw - make one of these! They make good presents too - I know what my friends will be getting for Christmas.

If you make one - post it - I'd love to see. x

  • How to sculpt a clay shape necklace. Retro Inspired Fimo Heart Jewellery - Step 1
    Step 1

    Gather all the necessary bits and bobs.

    The basic heart shape is the same, but depending on what your making depends on what you'll need after you've made the basic shape. If you are going to make a ring you'll need a blank ring, if you are going to make a magnet you'll need a magnet etc etc.
