DIY Jewelry Bowl in a Trendy Terrazzo Look

For years we were in love with concrete, then marble. Now these materials are being replaced by the speckled interior trend terrazzo . Pioneer? Reinvention? No way! The artificial stone made of marble and lime splinters was already used in antiquity and was highly valued because of its durability and the innumerable design options. At the beginning of the 20th century, terrazzo finally reached its peak and entire buildings, train stations and churches were equipped with it. At some point it then disappeared from the scene in order to increasingly adorn fashion, furniture, home textiles or stationery.

What I love so much about Terrazzo are the endless possibilities of the mosaic look to play with color and shape. This inspired me to form a small decorative bowl out of modeling clay. For my bowl I have chosen a mixture of delicate and strong colors: white, light gray, peach, combined with granite gray and black. This creates a playful, but not intrusive confetti pattern.

Material: Fimo Soft White , Fimo Soft Black , Fimo Soft Light Gray , Fimo Effect Peach , Fimo Effect Granite , cutter, rolling pin , small plate

Step 1: Model a large piece of white polymer clay and roll it out into a circle in the desired size with a rolling pin.

Step 2:  Separate small pieces of the gray modeling clay with the cutter and distribute them over the white surface.

Repeat the process with the other colors.

Step 3: Grab the rolling pin again and smooth the modeling clay until all the pieces are pressed in.

Step 4: Take a small plate as a template, place it on the modeling clay and cut along the edge with the cutter.

You can now turn the sides of the finished Fimo bowl up a little. Then bake the bowl in a preheated oven for 30 minutes at 110 degrees. The good piece is finished!

The bowl has found its place on my bedside table and serves as a shelf for jewelry, watch etc – optionally also as a coaster for my air plants. How do you like the result?
