fimo kralen maken - polymeer clay beads

Well, it has been a very busy time.  Glad to be back in a more normal routine.  And as it is a holiday periode for me now, I have some free time to spend.  Winnie asked me to accompany her to a workshop where we were going to make a necklace in fimo (polymeer clay).  I had done that years ago, and remembed it to be great fun. 

The workshop was given by Christine.  In the attic of her beautiful house she has created her own (gigantic ) craft space.   There were 9 of us, all very creative and eager to learn.  We all started with 3 different colours of fimo, and spend the morning rolling balls and 'sausages' until we had some very lovely beads.  It reminded me somehow of my kindergarten days...  back in the middelages of course... After lunch  ( great soup made by Christine's father !) we baked the beads and started on the necklaces.  As we all chose different colours, everyone's beads and necklaces were unique and so different.  Amazing technique, to produce such a variety ! I took some pictures, they will speak for themselves...

these are the colours I choose

Winnie choose turquoise, cupper and white

Some  beads were black, white and red

we learned some 'tricks of the trade'...

nice earthly colours

how do you like mine ?










I had enough to make a matching bracelet, ring and earrings...


A very good workshop, well prepared  and an excelllent teacher who knew what she was talking about.  A lovely day, thank you Winnie for the invitation !

  3. Hoi Rozemie, wat een prachtige naam! En welkom aan "boord" van Smoek! Ik wilde je bedanken voor je liefdevolle woorden. Ik heb er heel veel troost uit geput, bedankt! Maar nu over die Fimo-klei-kralen...wat erg mooi! Ik heb het eens gezien in een hobbywinkel maar durfde er zelf nog niet aan te beginnen. Maar nu ik bij jou kijk begint het toch te kriebelen... Ja ik wil dit ook gaan maken! Nieuw voornemen voor het nieuwe jaar die ik jou ook toewens gevuld met liefde, gezondheid en geluk (en! veel knutsel plezier!) Groetjes Smoek
