Materials Needed:


Three colors Polymer clay 1 oz each  (white needs to be one color choice)
Pasta Machine
Tissue Blade  (the sharper the better)
Marxit Tool
circle and rectangle shaped cookie cutters
acrylic roller

Roll out clay with pasta machine.  Use small cookie cutter to cut pieces as shown.  Each row (across) will be rolled into balls.   Do again with white and third color choice.  Roll out all your balls including a ball of white and the original color of 2 color choices.  Use a rectangle cookie cutter to cut and stack your colors in order from white to dark.


Using a Marx-it tool on the 3 MM side, mark your rectangle stacks.  Using sharp tissue blade, carefully slice following marks.


I stack my slices flat then flip vertically.

Stagger your slices as shown.


Cut and place carefully on the top.

With acrylic roller, roll turn, roll turn your square cane, cut in half...

Place together like so....

Here are some beads I made with that cane. These could be reversable (used cane scraps for backs)


I gave the beads to a dear friend and this is the jewelry she made with it.

That is beautiful! I love bargello quilts, but never thought about trying it with anything else. Wonderful idea.

Thank you everyone!!
This by far is my fav cane!!!
If I could put my beads down, I would learn to quilt  Wink
You could use the first couple steps for many other canes too.  Perfect  blends without using skinner blend technique.

That is REALLY neat.  I'm glad you shared this.  I had no idea about cane making.  The colors are so cool!  What great jewelry your friend made, too.

Great work! And very well-done tutorial too, and easy to follow!

(one little question though... why did you cut 2 rectangles from each color?  Were you planning on making another set of stacks?)

Thanks everyone!  Grin

Diane... Good eye you got there lol.
Yep I did make two stacks.  The other cane I cut like this:


Then with all the left over colors from making those canes, that is when I came up with my scrap "quilt" cane and beside it a slice from the remainder of leftover colors lol. (scrap-scrap cane?) Two or more colors of leftovers was combined (why the colors slightly differ) and no white or original two purple and turquois colors was used. 


Of course those canes ended up as beads too. Tongue
Sorry no pic of the scrap-scrap cane beads, they were given away to the same gal that made the jewelry above^
