See what you can do with a little square metal jewelry finding?

Back on New Years Eve, some of my clay buddies got together and had a play with clay pajama party.  We brought in the new year with a glass a champaigne and a lot of clay fun.

One of the things that we were making were several variations of a kaleidoscope cane.  I made this bracelet recently by using slices of one of the  kaleidoscope canes and some great metal findings.

The view to the right is a closeup of the bracelet with the silver beads that came with the findings plus a coordinating silver-lined blue glass seed bead.  It is string on heavy weight eleastic cord.

In the picture to the left, you can see one section of the final cane, then the kaleidoscope cane combined and reduced to fit in the frames. In the middle is, of course, the bracelet. And at the bottom is the metal findings that I started with.

See what you can do with just a few slices of clay, a strip of metal findings and a lot of imagination!!!

Thank you! I've had a lot of fun with the kaleidoscope canes! When I saw those little square frames at Hobby Lobby, I knew they would be a perfect way to "frame" the square cane!
