Here is the bracelet I made in last weekend’s Sarah Shriver workshop.

The surface design is a simple cane made from Fimo Classic clay in black & cream. The initial cane was reduced, mirrored, manipulated, and mirrored several times again to create the finished design (which looks a bit like an ethnic textile).

Cane slices were placed onto a backing sheet, then put around a clay bracelet form and baked.The inside of the bracelet contains stretch elastic cording and there are cuts on either side of the bangle (hidden by the design) that open up so the bracelet can be slipped on your wrist.I can’t wait to experiment more with this new caning technique! Here are a couple of pieces that I bought from Sarah this weekend for inspiration. 🙂
