Then I make the clay into different shapes needed to make flowers, grass, trees, etc.
And start putting all the pieces together like a big 3-D, cylinder shaped puzzle.
I rarely do the whole design in one day, as it can take up to 30 hours, but add to the design little by little.
Until finally it’s all put together!
Then I slice the Fimo cane, cook it in the oven, drill a hole in each piece, sand it, buff it, cover it with a special varnish, then wrap sterling silver wire around it and put it on a silver chain. (Or glue the piece onto a magnet for the refrigerator).
I presently have about 14 different designs, mostly mountain scenes and floral designs. I also make them into earrings, bracelets, and more.
