Polymer Clay Canes for Beginners

27 videos, step by step, beginner cane workshop beginner Cane Tutorial What people are saying about this tutorial. jennifer rose Just finished this first workshop on how to make canes, and I must say I learned so much. This is exactly what I have been looking for, someone who could explain cane making in a step by step that process that I could replicate. I watched the videos, went into my studio and began to create all of the canes Alice showed. I finally have results I can be proud of, and I say thank you so much for doing this workshop. My only question now is when do we get more workshops. If you are only going to take one online class let it be this workshop. Thank you Alice for your hard work, and your dedication to helping others learn the joys of polymer clay.

The Lesson of the Day – Never Give Up!

I know when  I have something that is about to happen that is going to make me say, “Yes!!!” , I get the feeling that I am creating but not moving forward. I also know that it is not the time to give up.

So I have been playing around with everything, anything and knowing that something will make me happy. And guess what? I’m happy!

I love these new bracelets. I love the craziness of them. I love them, they make me laugh. You see, While I was playing around with “the” face cane, I didn’t want to do another one because I really didn’t know what I would make out of it. The answer was right there in front of me. I was thinking I wanted to do something different, but what could I do that really made sense with the face canes. I like the idea of the mixed media, and I’m going to pursue that avenue too, but cuff bracelets, here I am again. Okay, maybe I’m just slow on the uptake sometimes.

So here is the first of my crazy new girls on cuff bracelets. I’ll still do my old girls, after all I have plenty. But I’m going to add these girls as well. I have tons of old jewelry to recycle and can’t wait to use some of it.

These bracelets are so Me! I can’t wait to wear this one to a meeting I have tomorrow. They’re so hard to show in a photo. You really have to see them up close and on someone’s wrist. Thus the “wonderful” picture of my wrist that should really not be shown “up close”, but the best way to show how much fun these are going to be to wear.

Good night kids, I’m sleeping really well tonight.

    What a great idea! I have tons of old jewelry that was my Grandma’s. I’ve always hated to think of using it on something that didn’t deserve it – but your bracelets certainly do! What a fab idea Alice!

    It is a great way to use those bits of costume jewelry none of us want to wear today, but as you say you don’t just want to use it on any old thing. Glad you think a bracelet like this would be worthy.

  • I love your new bracelets, Alice. It’s always fun to check out your blog because I get such great ideas. Now I know what to do with all the costume jewelry I inherited from my Mom!!!

    Hi Charline….good to hear from you. I’m glad you like them and I hope you get to use some of that jewelry. Why not. I can just see them on one of your masks. the perfect canvas for the jewelry.
