Say it with FIMO – DIY statement necklace
Who doesn’t want to hear a nice word? Normally writing is done with a pen – but you can write really well with FIMO too. You see lettering in all different shapes and everywhere – so why not wear something life-affirming such as “yeah” round your neck? You can make a letter-chain necklace very easily.

For a pretty marbled effect roll 1/2 block FIMO soft white and 1/4 block FIMO soft black into a ball and then into a sausage shape. The black sausage should be thinner than the white one.
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.
Twist the two sausages tightly together. Roll the twisted sausage into a ball and knead it until you have created a pretty marbled effect.
Afterwards roll out a long sausage from the marbled FIMO ball. Handwrite the word you want on a sheet of paper and then shape the sausage directly on to the baking paper. This means you don’t need to handle it again but can harden the lettering later in the oven on the baking paper. Then press an eye pin with eyelets left and right into the outermost letters and harden the FIMO word in the oven for 30 minutes at 110° C / 230 ° F. When the FIMO has cooled, attach the chain to the eyelets. DONE!
