Smooth working surface (glass or ceramic)

Step One

Roll out a block of FIMO leather-effect in watermelon into an even sheet about 1–2 mm thick using the clay machine or the acrylic roller.

Step Two

Cut out the printed leaves from the template. Place the largest leaf on the FIMO sheet and cut around the shape twice.

Step Three

Repeat with saffron yellow FIMO leather-effect and the middle sized leaf.

Step Four

Now cut out two of the small leaves from FIMO leather-effect olive as well.

Step Five

Pierce a hole at the top of the leaves with a bead piercing needle.

Step Six

Roll saffron yellow FIMO leather-effect into little balls about 7mm in diameter. Pierce a hole in each with a bead piercing needle. Harden the leaves and the two balls for 30 minutes in a preheated oven at 130° C / 266° F on both upper and lower heat.

Step Seven

Using the paper template and a pencil, mark the location of the notches on the hardened leaves. Now use the scissors to cut the notches into the FIMO leaves.

Step Eight

Thread the three leaves onto the jump ring in order of size. Push the balls onto the eye pins and bend the ends to form loops. Fasten all the elements together using the jewellery pliers. And you’re done!
