DIY jewellery with geometric triangolo shapes
Sharp geometric shapes and fresh spring colours mean this design will catch every eye.
Just roll, cut out, assemble, harden, and your new fashion accessory is done. Or you can make several at the same time. Your friends are bound to love this home made present!
Take 1 1/2 portions of FIMO soft and effect in white, mint, peppermint and metallic gold and roll out into a sheet about 2 mm thick using the acrylic roller. Alternatively, use the clay machine (setting 1) to ensure the sheet is an even thickness throughout.
Tip: Work in progress and left-over material should be protected against sun and heat and can be stored in a screw-top jar or in cling film to protect it from dust and dirt.
To make the necklace and a pair of earrings, you will need to make the following shapes from the FIMO colours:
Mint: 3 medium sized triangles
Peppermint: 1 large triangle
White: 1 large triangle
Gold: 1 large triangle and 2 medium‑sized triangles
Using the (medium sized) Diamond cutter, cut out two rhombus shapes in mint and gold. Repeat with the large cutter, cutting out a large rhombus shape in each of the white, gold and peppermint colours. Then cut the shapes in half using the cutter.
Now arrange the coloured triangles into your desired order and use the bead piercing needle to pierce a hole in the middle of the top edge of the top triangle.
Lay the triangles over each other and press down carefully. Now harden the pieces in the oven for 30 minutes at 110°C / 230°F. After they have cooled, push the split rings through the holes you made and attach to the earring hooks and a chain.
