Newest Patriotic Cane

Fresh off the workbench!

I needed a few new canes for my next batches of beads, so this one is the newest!

Since I had sold all my other red white and blue canes, I thought I should have one too.
More new canes are in the works and then a whole new batch of beads!

You're a Grand Ol' Flag .......
Just getting ready for the Fourth of July with these Red White and Blue Canes.
Each cane is 2 inches long and 1 1/2 in diameter. Not really big canes but fun ones all the same.

I spent the day doing some beading and getting my next necklace ready for sale and then I decided to relax by doing some cool kaleidoscopes. These canes are already spoken for but they were a lot of fun to do and I just might need to do a couple sets for myself for my pillow beads.

Enjoy and have a great weekend!

April Beads from March Canes :)

Taxes are over and I am in the mood to create more beads and canes!

I have only one kaleidoscope cane left and it is defiantely time to make more.

I have been busy doing other beading lately and finished a large beaded project using a beautiful lampwork bead that I purchased quite some time ago. I had reworked it to death to get it to where I finally wanted it.

I now have taken out all of my other couple dozen lampwork focals and am working on those to follow suit. I also have completed my blank beads which I am putting my waterslides on and now I have a whole new huge set of focals! :)

I will post photos as the new canes emerge from my new clay bin!

Check out the blanks!

Have a great weekend, Julie

Still Recycling

Still in the recycling mood, the yellows and lavendars keep getting reduced down to other colours and then shifted into something else. The little rose was a simple bullseye that I flattened and cut into sections and then reassembled into a rose. The yellow flower was the same thing only stacked.

Just more little flowers to add to my growing collection for my next set of beads.

April Showers and May Flowers

A lavendar ribbon flower (the lavendar is a complete mix of five or six scrap polymer clay chunks) which I used both Premo! and Fimo soft for the transparency. I allowed this to distort and used a flat lavendar center just for something different.

The other yellow mixture was another mix of polymer clay left overs which ended up being a simple daisy type flower that has a bit of contrast through it and should work well as a background flower on a bead.

I planted flowers yesterday and just was in the mood to create more flowers.

Keep watching, I have lots of clay left!
