Creating a weave cane


My friend and clay buddy, Suzanne I. and I had a clay day on Friday and created a weave cane by Lisa Clarke in Polymer Cafe. We try to get together almost every week at one of our houses. We had a great time figuring out the technique. I have included photos of the canes.

Working on spring goodies
I think of Spring as a wonderful time of the year! A fresh renewing of everything. A time to present new jewelry ideas you have swirling around in your head and on paper. I love pastels and naturals-fits in with spring fashions so well. I also get carried away with polymer caned flowers. I want to use create and use them in all of my pieces, sometimes to the point of saturated sweetness which can be boring. I am just drawn to creating flower canes. I am trying to broaden my portfolio and be more abstract in my pieces, both in polymer clay and metal clay.

I'm ready to create !!!!!!!!
I have a bunch of ideas swirling around my head. I am feeling anxious wanting to hurry up and try my ideas. I fired earrings and charms for a bracelet in my kiln. Now I'm going to clean them and tumble them. I can't wait to finish my bracelet as a sample for my sample case and wear it. of course. I'm also trying to get trans. polymer clay conditioned (all I have is Kato and it is pretty stiff) for a dragonfly cane. I also want to make a necklace and earrings in black circles, dry brushed with silver.

Paisley cane

I have been thinking, planning and creating a paisley design cane in my head and now I have it finished. However, I had different colors in mind. These are what I used in the photo. I plan to make another cane using pastel colors and a different design.

Comtemplating Brand New Year!
What can a brand new year bring? Many things. It can bring change, if I let it. It can be exciting, challenging, new, different, productive and positive. What I can do is set my goals to reflect all these adjectives. I tend to think the negative if my plan or project doesn't work out the first time I try something new, but lack of patience is the culprit. I am usually in a hurry to see the end result, which may not be in my best interest or interest of the piece of jewelry I'm creating. I will try diligently to be more focused on one project until I see it to a finished piece of jewelry. Being proud and excited about new work in metal clay and polymer clay is the reward and, therefore, I will take whatever time needed to accomplish my goal.
