I saw this tute on DIY by Lisa Pavelka.
 http://www.hgtv.com/hgtv/crafting/article/0,,HGTV_3352_1812259,00.html
I just did find the "frames" of all places Hancock Fabrics.

on pkg they called them bead charms.  There are nice sized holes in the frames for tooth pick drilling.

Chose a few canes that worked with frames the best.  (had to ditch the small red one, too old and it cracked. Darn it worked great in the flower frame too)

With two thickest setting of PM sheets, slice cane and place on sheets.  Center the frame and press the frame into the stacked sheets.  I use a flat ruler to press frame down evenly.

I pressed all the way flush with work surface.  Peeled the frame from sheet.  From the back press a little with finger in the middle (will make it bow like cabachon surface)  Clean up the back if needed.

I used curved wire for the heart holes to line up.  (now I see why Lisa Pavelka did not use the larger hearts in her tute) Bake them frames and all.  Just like you see on my index card.

I put them on memory wire (found that at Hancock Fabrics too)




Lucked out on matching the E beads with the colors in that cane on this pair of earrings!!  Grin
Could it be any easier than that??  Hard part was over, making the canes....

My canes have sat a long long time.  I use brand new clay blade (well I have a non flexible Kato clay blade dedicated to my cane slicing only)
If you place your canes in the freezer for a few mins also helps. 
If you notice, I do not like to slice my canes thick to lengthen use of cane.  Wink 

Thank you for your compliments missemotionless!! Grin

Those are cool.  I did the exact same thing a few years ago.  I will have to dig them out and take a couple photos to post.

Very nice!  I wouldn't know where to begin with polymer clay, so I'm always in awe of people who get such nice results, and things with canes fascinate me.

Lovely beads.  Thank you so much for sharing the tute!

I really enjoy polymer clay.  You can make so much out of it.

 Shocked I love this idea. I haven't played with my Fimo & Sculpey for a long time, but I may have to dig it back out!
