These are polymer clay discs i have created to use in a new collection of jewellery. I made these with various colours of hand-marbled clay, and millifiore canes, which i rolled out flat, and cut into shape. After baking, i drilled holes in them, some like buttons and others as charms.

Cool! They look fun to make too. :)
I'm impressed with all the different craft skills you have, Toby.
I can't see how the knitty bracelet is wonky (but then I always find you can see the flaws in things you've made yourself that you wouldn't if someone else had made it) I'm not a braceletty person really but I hope it gets a good home and donation to the charity :)

You clever thing Toby! I particularly like the blue ones, like little Dresden plates.

They are simply lovely Toby, what a good colour sense you have - and you have just given me a great idea for how to make wheels for my toys! What kind of clay do you use?

Hi Gretel,
I use polymer clay to make these, eg. fimo or sculpey. You just bake it in the oven!

I love the detail on the disks. The blue ones are so beautiful - very much like Millefiori. The others have a very psychedelic feel to it. They'd look great with ribbons or thin suede or some of the soft rubber string you can get in funky colours.
