Bamboo Leaves

A little cane I made looked like a collection of bamboo leaves to me, so I decided to try a couple of pieces with a bit of an oriental flare.  The first piece is a pendant and is sort of a collage.  It includes  the bamboo leaf cane, textured solid colors, a floral transfer with resin, and even some gold metallic thread.

Then I made another image transfer with a resin dome, and embedded it within the bamboo leaf cane.  The resulting piece begged to be a necklace complete with buna cording.  The small rectangular piece is a slide that allows the cord to lengthened or shortened.

As usual, I needed to make some earrings.  These two pair have a totally different "feel", even though they both use the same cane.
