Materials List

  • Polymer / Ordinary clay
  • Tempera paints (other paints maker's choice)
  • Polish
  • Toothpicks
  • Optional (sequins, seed beads)


  1. Cut small chunks of clay and work to make soft.

  2. When warmed up - make a round bead and then squish it and turn it a bit to make it irregular and twisted in shape.

  3. Mind not to make thin edges, and those will be made if you squish it right, because they will chip.

  4. When done, make a hole with a toothpick, decorate the fimo ones (I added sequins) and let the others air dry (unless you have a clay that needs baking).

  5. Bake the fimo. When dried, paint the beads, let dry and afterwards apply nail polish.

These are so... weirdly cute. I thought they were fabric on first glance! Definitely contemporary and chic. I especially love the blue clay beads with gold polka dots.
