One of the canes I enjoy making with translucent is the chrysanthemum or "chrissy" cane. I most frequently make this with a Skinner blended translucent layer and a solid white, thinner layer of clay. These layers are rolled up jelly-roll style with indentations made by a credit card or similar item, and voila! Your cane is ready for use!
The earrings on the left were made with another color combination.
These 2 bracelets below were made from very different color pallets. The upper cuff has dusty purples and light rose colors while the lower cuff is oriented a bit more toward fall: copper, greens and rust.
Here are two more pairs of earrings in different styles. Pendants coming soon! Stay tuned.

The mobius shape on these earrings is one I've used before and I really like. This time, I flattened 2 sides so the pieces are not completely symmetrical.
The other two cream and colored pairs are posts and have two petals attached to each other vertically. There really is no limit to what you can do with polymer and polymer canes. Let your imagination run free - and experiment!
