I did a polymer clay  workshop a couple of months ago where I learned how to make a bullseye can using a clay gun (extruder gun).  The canes turn out very much reminiscent of Gustav Klimt's art.

Anyway, I swapped some of my cane with another at the work shop.  This is what I made from the other person's cane. 
Hard to tell from the photos but colours of clays used was red, oranges, greens, purples, and copper.


Have different bits of condition clay left over from other jobs?  This is a great way to use them.  The more colours you have the better.  You need both dark and light colours.

You are right--I have several Klimt paintings and your lovely earrings remind me of his incredible work!! I bet the copper is quite lovely in person as metallics add a special touch! 

Lovely!

Great looking! ... they make good earrings too because the dots are so small.

I call automatically-wrapped extrusions like that from a clay gun, "dot slices" when a bunch are put together, but they're definitely Klimt-ish too (as well as duplicating the "Mod" look from the 70').  They're really fun to do, and also one way to make bullseye "canes" with a tool rather than having to build them by hand in the regular way.

Did you do anything else with the automatically-wrapped canes, or do you have any left over to play around with in other ways?  Those colors would make a pretty sanded braid, for instance, like the darker of these two (on barrette blanks) though those are thicker:

... or maybe sanded Balinese Filigree would be more the right size for any leftovers:
