DIY Fimo Clay Winter Rose Ring

IMG_4711.jpg

img_4713I have been playing lots and lots with Fimo clay over the last few weeks and thought I would share this ring idea. The rose design can be used for lots of different embellishments such as earrings, hairbands or necklaces, but I just love this ring design. The clay comes in so many lovely colours, but for me you cannot go wrong with this delicious grey.

METHOD

To make the centre of the rose, roll a small sausage shape and flatten it using your index finger (depending on how big you want the rose to be).

At one end roll this up to make the centre of the rose.

For the petals, make 5-7 balls and flatten them into fine petal shapes with your fingers.

Holding the centre, add the petals around the outside squeezing the base as you go.

Once you have added the desired amount of petals, cut off the excess clay at back of the rose so it sits flat.
