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.

Detour From Face Bracelets

Necklace - Alice Stroppel

I sometimes wonder how I ever get through anything. I decided to stop thinking of things to do, filing them away in my head and never ever bringing them back out again, and do something about the ideas right then.

Do you do this? I know you do! We all have those minutes when we are right in the middle of creating something we think is wonderful (or not) and another wonderful (and once again, at least we think it’s wonderful) idea jumps into our brain. We don’t usually stop what we’re working on to do the new thing. At least that’s what I used to do.

The other day I decide to just follow where I am being led at any given time. I have spent most of my adult life doing what I thought would “sell”, or what others might like. I have given some of that up for doing exactly what I want to do and exactly when the idea comes along.

I was making new canes for my new face cane bracelet series and some of the canes and some of the process looked like great necklace material. So I took the fork in the road and ended up with the necklace above. I’d ordered some buna cord awhile back and that’s what I used to finish it off. I also used some silver finding for the clasp.

I’m on my way back to the bracelets now, see I wasn’t gone long and I’ve made something I really like and will wear. I just wanted to share this with you. I had fun, and that’s my job!
