Ok, so thats a lie, I think its really my second attempt, bu this is my first attempt at something a little complex. I did it just fooling around, but later learned its called a "lace" or "lacework" cane...and I made beads with it.

Heres a close up, some of the beads cracked with I tried to make the hole through them. It's because I had to put them down one night, and I just lightly covered them...a few days later they were all brittle again and making the hole  was really difficult. Most of them are good, I think I just happened to take a picture of the few I ended up throwing out

i think those are really pretty! they would make some snazzy earrings! also, just a fun tip, but if you ever do canes again, and are having a hard time cutting them, if you pop them in the fridge for about half an hour, the cutting will be easier. =) just in case you didn't already know that lol i wanna go make some now

I used that trick on the flower canes I just did...very helpful. With this one I was like falling asleep as I was doing them, but I just really wanted to play with the clay I had just gotten...thats why they sat for a few days because I decided I needed to go to sleep after cutting them. Also, I have yet to get a "proper" cutting tool. For now I am using a razor blade with one of the razor edges covered in part of my FIRST cane so i dont cut myself. It works great as long as what I am cutting is thinner than the side of the blade!
