Nice onlays!  (and you'll be able to see plumerias someday, I'm sure!... meanwhile, making them is good!)  Skinner blends really make things pop, don't they?... those are really popping off the black.

The black rattail cording is a nice complement to the more matte clay too.  Did you put a clasp on the ends, or tie them?

Thanks for the compliments.  DianeB, I love this ratail cord.  I use those U shaped "fold over and smash" metal ends with hole for adding any desired clasp. I sometimes call them "leather ends" when making my Hobby Lobby list.  For the life of me I cannot remember what they are called.  They came free (I saw at walmart) with the ribbon necklace kits.  End finishers, no that is not it either.  In the kit they call them ribbon clasps.  For all you out there that think they cannot make a skinner blend cane, you'll surprise yourself how easy it is.  Kato clay was used, I did not 'future polish' these.  Since this was one of my first pieces, you can see my fingerprints in them.  I use surgical gloves now, when doing my in lays.  I also do the "rub one way petting"  them before baking will remove fingerprints.    DON"T YOU LOVE MY TECHNICAL TERMS???

Well, I'm with you!... I'm never sure what those things are called, but this site calls them "foldover crimps" and that sounds good to me:

I've also glued or partly squashed rattail into tube ends or coil ends, but can never remember those names either and am not even sure they're correct.


You mean "thingie" isn't a technical term?Huh  I'm in big trouble now...
