This is a necklace I made for my future mother-in-law. It has a magnetic clasp because she has trouble tying things.






This also the first cane I made up myself, with predicable "first timer/I don't want to read directions all the way through" results  Grin.  It was supposed to be  tree surrounded by green swirls. I did not have the proper grasp of caning. I made it to big to start with and ran out of green. Then I used all my yellow up and all of my white.  I think it looks like tye dye and the color are not the ones I would have pick to start with but it turned out nice. I have lots left over so it will be popping up all over the place in future.




Criticism and comments make my craftster day.

I love the colours! I like the combination of poly clay beads with the cord/string stuff (sorry don't know what it's called) the textures are really nice. hahaha my own poor, misguided attempts at caning have left me with far too many wonky, unrecognisable star beads, I sympathise...

I always turn wonky in to sometime cool. Have you tried taking your wonky canes and doing kaleidoscope canes out of them. Basically you cut them in to 6 pieces and smush them together. That is how I did the star in this. I then pulled the end the out to make star points. I somethings like my mistakes better then what I was tiring to make. The cord is hemp. Thanks for commenting on my stuff.
