I know this looks complicated, but it is easier than it looks check this out:

Ingredients: Orange, green, yellow and black polymer clay
I skinner blended orange and green, yellow and green, and orange and yellow.  Notice I rolled these three combinations opposite each other.  Wrap in black med thickness.

I squared them like so.......(the cutter is used to prop canes for photo, not to square the canes)

Reduce canes to 5 inches long (or so) and cut into one inch long pieces.

Arrange like so in diagonal rows. Reduce this cane to 4 inches and cut into four one inch long pieces.

arrange pieces like so.....

This one here is my extra one inch pieces not needed for the larger cane. Waste not want not, I made smaller cane too.

Here are some pendants showing different phases of reducing.  Second one is last one reduced and stacked one more time.

The cross in the center is a wonderful accident, so I pressed it into a gold bead frame.  Gonna give this to my best crafty friend!!!

Here is a completed beaded set using that cane.  How in the world am I supposed to part with this set??   Maybe I will borrow it for a while lol    Cool    (wasn't me!!)

Absolutely gorgeous! Thanks for the pictures showing how the design was made. I find it very interesting even though I do not do this kind of work----probably too artistic for me.  Smiley

How lucky the friend that will be receiving this.

Wow - totally amazing how much difference you can make with one thing.
The first one looks like a rubick's cube and the last one looks like stained glass!
All beautiful! And I agree - I love seeing the pictures of how you do it - it kind of demystifies it a little.
I love how vibrant the colors are!!
Oooooooo - I hope I'm the lucky friend  Grin
