My Kalediscope Cane Needs Something More

I guess the title sums up my post pretty well, I decided to use up some old canes  and practice Kaleidoscope Canes at the same time and this is the result

Kaleidoscope Cane - The original old cane is the centre lilac circle which has unfortunately lost most of its pattern in the cane reduction

I do like the cane but when i use it to create a sheet it just looks too dark it needs something more, something brighter at least it is a lesson to be learnt.

Also should Kaleidoscope canes be reasonably large to maintain the detail of the cane, I think maybe so and I will have to get over my miserly use of clay next time round.

Poppy fields - A Pendant which needs finishing, possible framing not quite made up my mind yet and a set of 3 pillow beads (not yet cooked)

My little Christmas Robin beads, this picture of them lined up reminds me of the song Two Little Dicky Birds
