These are pins I finished recently - still have a scad of the cane I used, so I suspect there will be a lot more versions of these in my future!

Those look awesome!  Almost like faux wood underneath... cool.

(I'm assuming you put the canes together though for the image on the left, right???)

Thanks for all the nice comments!  This was one of those "it looks nothing like I intended it to when I started the project, but I like it anyway" things - I had this image in my mind of the colored segments bordered by black, bordered by gold, but much more geometric; however, I'm very much of a novice at caning and the version with the gold got pretty distorted when I reduced it.  I also had a bunch of pieces of the colors+black segments left over, which I put all together and sliced to make the one on the left.

I think you did it the "right" way anyway because you'd have had trouble with the gold (mica-containing) clay not being shiny when used as a wrap around a cane. 
Since the mica flakes would have been lined up parallel to the cane, when sliced in cross-section, you would have seen the "dark" side rather than the shiny side of the gold (getting the shiny face to show in this situation can be done, but it's much more hassle!... if you want to know how to do that for another time though, look on this page:
http://www.glassattic.com/polymer/mica.htm
...then do a search on that page for the word ingot or jellyroll because one basic technique is described in both, and Pier Voulkos' way is by pulling ropes which is also on that page).

Anyway, the result looks great.   A lot of creativity is happy coincidence anyway  Grin
