I have my layout and all I have to do is follow the pretty cane diagram and I would have my cane constructed in no time with a few leftover for any mistakes that may arise. Do you think that I could follow the canes no I could not. I ended up with something so different I can not tell you how I did it. I think the cane has a mind of its own. I know this is something that will happen every time as I have already constructed another cane and this time it looked different when I built it as well. I kept laughing at myself while building because I could not follow the canes while constructing.

Canes got built and reduced that spectacular day at Maureen’s. I love love love the sound of a cane being slammed around. I say it is the sound of magic, sexy cane magic. Here are pictures of the class canes enjoy.

In class I was able to make 2 pendants and a set of earrings that I get a lot of compliments on each time I wear them.

When I got home it was a different story I could not make the beads as we had done in class so I had to find a way that was pleasing to my eyes. I had to finish sets in a hurry so hubby could take them as gifts to his sisters and their daughters in Lebanon. I hope they liked them as some parts for me were a struggle. I had to change the design of the earrings as I had a lot of scrap cane. I think they turned out nice and hopefully the new proud mama’s have happy ears and necks with the new designs.

The new cane that I just constructed is turning out well and I will have gifts for all the ladies at the auctions, my family for x mas, the play it forward group, and another special swap. EEEkkk time is running out. Here is a sneak peek of some designs.

    I don’t know why you are dissatisfied. These look great. You have only been doing this a couple of months.

    Amazing caning! I enjoy working with polymer clay as well. I wish I were as productive as you are. Check my blog and remind me to get more pieces made and photos to prove it.
