In today’s video I show you how to make three simple 2-color polymer clay canes. Making beads & jewelry from these is as easy as cutting slices and adding stringing holes.

You can also cut thin slices of the canes and use them as veneers on shaped beads. Don’t forget that you can use the scraps from cane-making as well. For the central piece in my necklace above I surrounded a slice of the squared swirl cane with some leftovers from the checkerboard cane.

Although I love the spiral cane, I wasn’t really thrilled with the way the basket weave came out. I think if I’d used five layers for the initial stack, with the darker color  on the outsides, the design would have been more clear. Also, wrapping it with a thin sheet of clay, like I did for the checkerboard, would have been good. Ah, well….

Have fun creating and experimenting! When you’re done simply string them together with some spacers and other beads and you have a fun, graphic necklace with a tribal vibe.

Enjoy the video and happy creating!

  1. If you didn’t post videos, I’d never believe you actually made these. :O
