Cane-based Cuff Bracelets

I wanted to have a couple of brass and polymer bracelets for the April show, and decided to try something new.  I put a clay base down on the brass cuff, then cut slices from canes I'd been making, and placed them side-by-side on the clay base.  Each new row of cane slices was pushed up against the previous row of slices. The result has a sort of "tribal" look.
On a couple of smaller brass cuffs, I made some Ikat blend backgrounds, and decorated them with flowers made of leaf canes with crystal centers. Bright colors for spring!
