 I saw this post http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=369706.0 by Maxxev a while back, and really liked the look of the stockinette stitching on it! I finally got myself a clay extruder, and decided to play around.  Here's what I came up with!

They are really easy to make, just a bit time consuming. Just a series of twists, each one in the opposite direction, pressed together! But looks really complicated once it's all finished. Smiley

So neat and pretty. Do they have any flex?

Thanks, everyone! Smiley 

You'd be surprised how flexible they are!  You can bend the wider ones almost straight and the thinner ones can be pretty much bend backwards and are floppy without a clasp.

the flexibility will depend on the type of clay you use. some brands are more brittle and tend to crack or break rather than flex. which brand did you use for these?

i like the first one best though the blue , cream and copper is striking.

I used Premo for these, it stays wonderfully bendy.  I don't think they'd work too well with Sculpy III though.  I've never used Fimo before, does it bake up flexible as well?
