Polymer clay & leather

The other week I was mixing up some bits of fimo clay that i had left over from other crafting, I rolled it through my pasta machine, and loved the colours and patterns that came out. I managed to cut out some earring shapes,and a pendant shape, but the fimo was very thin .

After baking it, it felt quite flimsy.
Today I decided to play around with it, to see if I could “rescue” it .

I thought about putting them onto another layer of fimo, but decide on putting them onto some off cuts of leather instead.
I was happy with the result, and am going to try it with a few more.

I have not finished the pendant yet, I am still deciding what sort of attachment I want to use to connect it to the neck cord.
Any ideas ?
