I'm pretty new to fimo. I make sculptures with original sculpey, so I'm not used to the harder clay. These are some of the first charms I made. I hope you like them!

Xbox360 controller earrings with a quarter for size reference. The beads are the colors of the buttons and the "X" on the power button glows in the dark.

Detail shot. Sort of, lol.

Evolution of Nintendo controllers charms. Someday I'll put this on a bracelet.

With size reference.

NES controller. This is where it all began. The D-pad looks kind of weird. This was the first one I made. I still think it's cute in that quirky homemade kind of way.

SNES controller.

N64 controller. I like how this one came out the best.

Gamecube controller.

Wii-mote. I had trouble getting a good shot of this since it's mostly white.

These didn't take long to make at all, maybe 10 minutes a piece. I'm say I'm proud of them, overall, but I do hope I get better as I continue to use this clay. It's much rougher on the hands and stickier than original sculpey.
Feedback, positive or critical encouraged, and advice always welcome. Cheesy

I like the earrings.  I'm new to polymer clay too.  I'm hoping to get better.  I have a lot of ideas in my head, but don't have the skills to make them.

Good job!!

Those are neat. They would also make a really nifty charm bracelet. Smiley

Thanks! I was planning on putting them on a bracelet eventually, but I don't have the right findings right now. I'll probably take a trip to my craft store and pick up some toggles. All I have are the lobster claws and I prefer to use them for necklaces. :-/
