About Fimo Beads

Fimo beads are made from polymer clay, a highly malleable and durable material which becomes hardened after being baked. The end result is a smooth and sculpted finish which creates a highly personalised, chunky statement piece of jewellery. Each fimo bead has a threading hole in the middle, allowing it to be used as a button or bead.

    Millefiori Fimo Beads

    Millefori is an Italian word translating as ‘a thousand flowers’. It is a type of glass work which produces a mosaic finish and can also be applied to polymer clay work. By slicing clay canes thinly you produce a range of flowers which are stuck together and incorporated into lots of different shapes including pendants, buttons, tea lights and most other decorative items.
