It's been a while since I crossed anything off my list of 34 things to make, and suddenly I find myself crossing off two in one go! I made these millefiori magnets for the Christmas market and to give away.
Millefiori means 'a thousand flowers' in Italian. In my case it was more like 27 flowers, since I just used remnants of Fimo (polymer clay) that I happened to have in the cupboard at home.
I gave these sets to some friends yesterday as part of a little package of handmade goodies. I haven't made millefiori since I was a teenager and now I can't wait to try it again! I don't plan on making exquisitely complex flowers, but I might try something ever so slightly more detailed next time... And if you haven't done this before yourself - I recommend it!
