Polymer Clay Striped Cane and Jewelry

I like stripes, all kinds of stripes, different widths, different colors. I like to combine them with other shapes.

  I am going to concentrate on stripes for the next few days and see what I come up with. Here are my frist stripe canes.

Click on the photos for a closer look.

I made a multicolor stripe cane and used it to make the abstract cane.


plus a couple more variations 



I made this pendant from the end scraps, added a few little flowers and filled the opening in the center with  colored wire and crystal beads. 


More pendants, the one on the top right is from end scraps. I made the design on the other two by cutting a log off the stripe cane twisting it, rolling it smooth and cutting length wire.  I liked the little flowers on the first one so I scatterer them across these too. 



I made beads to use with the pendants but they are in the oven.  I'll show them to you later. 

Thanks for stopping by.
