A colourful collection of 17 Fimo beads from South Africa, comprising a variety of sizes and shapes.

We love them for their vibrant colours – they are very workable for creators of fine jewellery.

Collectible FIMO beads were first derived from polymer clay, which was first discovered in the 1930s by a dollmaker in Germany called Fifi Rehbinder.

Unable to source her normal supplies due to the political climate of upheaval at the time, she developed a plastic clay called ‘Fifi Mosaik’ and used it to sculpt her doll heads.

It wasn’t until the mid-1960s that Rehbinder sold the formula to Eberhard Faber who tweaked the Fimo brand of polymer clay which was then primarily used as a toy for children.

As the FIMO brand entered new markets all over the world, the making of beads became a natural progression.

The beads in this collection measure10-11mm, almost square and weigh in at 25 grams and work out to cost 1.30 cents apiece.

The pieces allow for optimum creativity and temper exciting jewellery prospects – with a generous 1.5-2mm threading hole.
